Matt Hammitt – Highlights Lyrics (feat. Nobes)

I can see your shadow
Dancing around me
In the daylight
In the good times

And that magic hour
Those wild flowers
Make us feel like
We just might

Be invincible forever
Impossibly untethered
Perfectly sewn together

Let the sun go down
Let the shadows lie
Let me see your beauty
Through unfiltered eyes

Look into my face
See the scars of time
It’ll never be picture perfect
But I want real life
Not just the highlights
I want more than the highlights

Those silver linings
We always find ’em
Shining brightest around
The grayest clouds

Tell me how we gonna know the measure
How strong we really are together
If we’re never worn or weathered

Let the sun go down

Let the shadows lie
Let me see your beauty
Through unfiltered eyes

Look into my face
See the scars of time
It’ll never be picture perfect
But I want real life
Not just the highlights
No, I want more than the highlights

Don’t hide those crooked lines
Don’t filter out the light
The greatest beauty shines
In the face of time
Don’t cover up the heart
Don’t make us look like stars
Those less than perfect parts
Make us who we are

Let the sun go down
Let the shadows lie
Let me see your beauty
Through unfiltered eyes

Look into my face
See the scars of time
It’ll never be picture perfect
But I want real life
Not just the highlights, no

I want more than the highlights
