Sweet Talk

Is the world conspiring against us
it can feel like that sometimes
they say just chalk it up to bad luck
and go on with your lives
but the memory still haunts me
like it trails six steps behind,
so just lock it away, lock it away
and get a grip

And we dreamed it big, and we dreamed it nice
and we're dreaming still
just four months shy

You can't sweet talk it right
sweet talk it right
sweet talking still
sweet talk tonight

And we're left searching for the answer
praying some good might come from this
so don't lose your faith, don't lose your faith
when your doubts come rushing in
and their safe jobs, and they like their lives
everything can change, in the blink of an eye

You can't sweet talk it right
sweet talk it right
sweet talking still
sweet talk tonight

And the hard cost of enlightenment, doesn't leave you feeling blessed
'cause even victims of circumstance, are still victims, none the less

Is the world conspiring against us
it can feel like that sometimes
they say just chalk it up to bad luck
and go on with your lives
but the memory still haunts me
and when it's silent fills my mind
and if your instincts have failed you, can your dreams be far behind

And we'll dream it big, and we'll dream it nice
and we're dreaming still
dream to heal twice

We'll sweet talk it right
sweet talk it right
sweet talking still
sweet talk tonight
