lyrics

Look up from these shadows
Mysterious castles
They sail through the sky
There's a painter inside

He works with a mixture of colors
His pictures
Creates them with light
Then he brings them to life
And we watch them fly, and

Like spells on the floor
Like clouds watch them soar
Empty canvases whisper promises
That we'll turn into paint
If we jump out of our frames

So what if we fall down
And land on this small
Empty canvas and
Find our way again
To the painter who could paint
With our colors mixed together again?

This castle of secrets
The walls move and I meet you
Your picture collides
In the space next to mine

I see how you walk in your frame
When you talk it's a song
And it goes from your lips to my soul

My head said move it faster
My heart said let it bloom
After an evening in flight
When we both say goodnight

But tell me i need to know 
If the walls move
Would you leave, would you go with me?
I would too
Maybe I would too
  
Here they come around the corner
We might find out real soon
And watch them fly, and

Like spells on the floor
Like clouds watch them soar
Empty canvases whisper promises
That we'll turn into paint
If we jump out of our frames

So what if we fall down
And land on this small
Empty canvas and
Find our way again
As we sail across the halls
And go searching for the artist together?

I make my way to ya
The lights shining through ya
Yeah your heart and design
Would go better with mine
