It is hard to hear what you're saying
And it is not because it's not loud
It's 'cause I know the truth remaining
And I'm not proud
'Cause I look to you to make me work harder
And now you have given up
And I think fear, time and pale love haven't faded
And I'm not sure what you're sure of

'Cause pale love is loose around the seams
Pale love is quiet, then it screams
Pale love covers over dreams
It pushes and it shoves
It's the worst thing I can think of
You deserve a heart that's bright
A home and an open road
You deserve to live at least until you're dead
And if this is the only thing you know

If you're looking for a pretty picture, look at her
And if you want to live the truth, look at me
Pretty soon all these big things won't matter
And you'll see your ghosts retreating
Showing you real love is lighter than air
Real love won't deny that it is there
Real love rises above
It's what you and I are made of

It's the calm within your heart
And it won't keep us apart
'Cause it's the way it's supposed to start
Real love, real love, real love
'Cause pale love is the worst thing I can think of
