Yellowcard - Shrink the World Lyrics

If I could, then I'd
Shrink the world tonight
So that I would find
You and me inside

A life in love, a picture of a place I'm nowhere near
A bleeding heart, a good head start to anywhere but here
Just let me out; please, let me out before I turn into
A box of things reminding me how much I'm missing you (I am missing you)

If I could then I'd
Shrink the world tonight
So that I would find
You and me inside
Of the last good scene
A film that changes things
Breaks us, makes us sing
Leaves us wondering

And through the wall my fist you call, but then you always run
So what's it for, the love and war? It's only fair for some
You saved the girl, you saved the world; well, that's not true it seems
A lesson learned, speak out of turn; I bite my tongue, it bleeds (bite my tongue it bleeds)

If I could then I'd
Shrink the world tonight
So that I would find
You and me inside
Of the last good scene
A film that changes things
Breaks us, makes us sing
Leaves us wondering
Are you wondering?

If I could then I'd
Shrink the world tonight
So that I would find
You and me inside
Of the last good scene
A film that changes things
Breaks us, makes us sing
Leaves us wondering

If I could
Shrink the world tonight...
If I could
Shrink the world tonight...
