Moths left to a flame

Won't you open your eyes so I can fall asleep tonight
Can we stop playing pretend? It's time to take off these disguises again

Let's move to a foreign land
Where we can both live like kings
Chased by our wildest desires
Never needing to worry about anything
The life of royalty never seemed so grand
But for you I'd live like a peasant
Dying just to exceed your every demand

Maybe I think too much
Sometimes I fear not enough
But as long as I lie here awake,
I'll watch you, beautiful and lush

Three cheers for disappointment
Three cheers for long-lost chances
But I'll drink to optimism
So long as hope waits beyond the horizon
Let's sail away on this sinking ship
Into the sunset and never come to 
Grips with reality, lifes greatest formality
Until we burn away like moths left to a flame

When I dream I fear
Once I wake up, you'll no longer be here
And I'll fall straight off these cliffs
Into those rocks and pray I miss
and land in ocean blue
But will I drown without you?

I'm rusty with old spare parts
Like a broken down car that barely starts
Marooned at the side of the road
With no one left to guide me home
A hardened sailor left at sea
Dark storms mask the stars that shepherd me
[need to fill
need to fill]

Three cheers for disappointment
Three cheers for long-lost chances
But I'll drink to optimism
So long as hope waits beyond the horizon
Let's sail away on this sinking ship
Into the sunset and understand that
You are meant for me
And maybe we're meant to be
So won't you follow me tonight
Let's go to [distant/far off] places
We'll never look back or count our paces
The distance won't matter as long as I'm with you because
My heart burns for yours like a moth left to a flame
