Mars​/​Why Can't I Feel Tonight

lyrics

Mars
///
Walking and it's cold
So come on in. We've got liquor and stars.
Climb up to the rooftop, someone's on about his trips
He thinks he's been to Mars

See you from across the room, but it's not you
And I don't want to settle, but I'm falling down, and there's nobody there
///
Why Can't I Feel Tonight
///
Running around and feeling dead
It's an unwelcome aftertaste of always trying to get ahead
And running into walls I swore I'd climbed before
I guess we all come around again
Standing at the party with the friend of the friend, and it's absolutely superficial
They wouldn't hear a single word I'm saying

Why can't I feel? Why can't I feel alive tonight?
Why can't I feel? I just want my heart to beat tonight
Why can't I feel? I know why I'm not right tonight
Why can't I feel alive?

I don't think I'll make it up for Christmas this year
See I got no money anymore and I wish you were here
But I love going to bed and seeing your face again
I don't want to let it out of my mind
Girl, I still don't know you like I know that I should
I think about you constantly. Don't know how to talk to you
Have to choose between the dream and staying

Why can't I feel? Why can't I feel alive tonight?
Why can't I feel? I just want my heart to beat tonight
Why can't I feel? I know why I'm not right tonight
Why can't I feel alive?

Hey honey, have you seen all this before, what you say we leave it all behind?
Hey honey, how about running out the door. I just want to see a face tonight.
