Baby its already changed Seems like we’re one in the same Now a touch Repeating in sync Feeling in sync My body said to play it safe Sitting silent is all that it takes Seems like we’re one in the same Even though I cant say it Trading time for each other Spend our nights under covers I’ve been up too late And I’m thinking about Another place Take our time My minds at ease Can’t ignore What you do to me I’ve been up too late And I’m thinking about Another place

Where is my guiding light? I was left out in the cold Time heals, say your goodbyes I tried but I never was that bold  Now I’m running out of reasons to stay Everything is wrong, what a mess I made Holding out for some kind of change Fear of losing out keeps me the same All my nights just burn and they burn and they burn All my days just turn and they turn and they turn  Reliving memories to pass the time I know it ain’t healthy but I don’t mind  Ghost in the sheets Let the beast feed Crawl out for another day Fall out of good faith Wasting time fading away All my nights just burn and they burn and they burn All my days just turn and they turn and they turn  Where is my guiding light? Where is my guiding light? Where is my guiding light? Where is my guiding light? 
(LA timpa) We was on the bus last week Unfortunately something went wrong 105% like them dudes Fronting like we wanna do it And it feels like It's summer when its lunch I only feel water when I pause Water falls when we out here

There's a vibe in heaven Before my eyes Blind Show me the light (Outro) Ayo what's the deal young blood, How you doing man?
