Vanilla Skies
Music and Lyrics by Rob Oswin (aka RAW Boswin)



I've been waiting for the phone to ring
To help me change my mind
While you've moved on to less important things
And left this all behind

But I won't fall to pieces,
And I'll never close my eyes
While I'm searching for the answers
In your cold Vanilla Skies.

The more I think of it, the less I need to know,
The more you'd need to say.
And every time I think we've made another breakthrough,
Life gets in the way.

But I won't fall to pieces,
And I'll never close my eyes
While I'm searching for the answers
In your cold Vanilla Skies.

You can dust your cotton candy storms
In shades of lavender and orange
And twist your alibis
So in the morning when I open up my eyes
There'll be no surprise
To see your Cold Vanilla Skies.

Well I've been waiting for the phone to ring
To hear what's on your mind

But I won't fall to pieces,
And I'll never close my eyes
While I'm searching for the answers,
In your cold Vanilla Skies.
Vanilla Skies
