Leftwich, Benjamin Francis - Mayflies Lyrics




Wide awake
Colors start to run
Giving in, like I'm staring at the sun
Bending up, 'cause you're say that you love
Me but I know, there is a life I'm giving up
In another life the mayflies will take over the sky
Another one, away from here
I don't wanna talk about it, afraid of what I'm gonna do
I don't wanna let your light in, I've got enough to lose
I don't wanna say something, afraid I am gonna make it true
Lying in the pieces, I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose

Still awake,
Nothing seems to shine
For better days
I know what you leave behind
You're making me choose, but I can't lie
Maybe we're in love, in another time

In another life the mayflies will take over the sky
Another one, away from here
I don't wanna talk about it, afraid of what I'm gonna do
I don't wanna let your light in, I've got enough to lose
I don't wanna say something, afraid I am gonna make it true
Lying in the pieces, I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose
Got enough to lose

I don't wanna talk about it, afraid of what I'm gonna do
I don't wanna let your light in, I've got enough to lose
I don't wanna say something, afraid I am gonna make it true
Lying in the pieces, I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose
I've got enough to lose

  5. Sef Noel

    Why is there no "just breathe" song in youtube??

  6. Life With The Jenkins

    This is so beautiful! Could I please use this in a video on my Youtube channel? It will be perfect for my baby shower video! I'll of course 100% credit you!!

  7. Audiogarden Templedog

    it's amazing that 87 Neanderthal no brains found some kind of justification not to like this beautiful song... I hope they're not claiming to be organ donors because they obviously have no heart

  8. Saphir Cristal Tavares

    Hey Benjamin you gorgeous , your music just coloured my day ,,,,,,, i love feeling and make part of this universe of special and so beautiful music * See you soon in Portugal * It will be truelly special* Happy me listning to your music and singing together , Your poems light fire*

  9. Thonkhaw Sriperm

    So the song is titled mayflies. He doesn't want a long term relationship, and mayflies doesn't live for long so is mayflies part of the symbolism or am I high and making random shit up?

  10. Kelsey Rochelle

    I am in love

  11. Bree K.

    Found this song at exactly the period in my life where I'm going through something VERY similar....... how do you tell someone, with an unbearably beautiful soul, someone you love spending your days with......"what we have is beautiful but, maybe we're a love for another time"

  12. What?

    There are only some songs that come into a person's life, usually quite by chance, and the connection is instantaneous. This song is one of them. Thank you Benjamin.

  13. Life With The Jenkins

    Where can I download this? Also am i able to use it on one of my videos on your youtube channel? Addicted!! Great work! X

  14. Sa brina

    Maybe we 're a love for another time... ♡

  16. Joel Worsham

    Who else hears the giants from Zelda: Majora's Mask??

    j. Rappolt

    YESSS! I just came here to see if anyone else noticed it. That's all I think about when I hear this song now.

  17. Rox Figueroa

    Haciendo el recuento de alguna canción de este año del mono más movido que la cresa, creo que mi primer lugar se la llevará esta joyita de Benjamin Francis Leftwich, que aunque cuando la escuché por primera vez no fue una ocasión para nada alegre, su tibieza me abrigó desde esa emisora euskera una noche de invierno... Es realmente exquisito el arreglo y el olor a mar un día de junio en el hemisferio sur que emana...
    Bkn tener tanta música en el corazón y disfrutarla

  18. adinda shafira

    This guy is legendary. The lyrics have no connection but this is my song for my favourite lady in the whole world Wilma my dog who left me 2 years ago in May. It just resonated with me and ever since I hear it I cry.

    If you love this legend, check out James Vincent Mcmorrow.
