Collide by Aurora Ramos (Lyrics)

“Collide” By Aurora Ramos

Year is over
Time to recover, in another
Lonely summer

Kids are laughing
Round a campfire
Another one
you weren’t invited to

All the lonely people seem fine
Staying in their bubbles
Until we find
That they’re not
Why do friendly people
What they’re feeling inside
From ones they want to know?

All these people getting nowhere
In this little game of

All the lonely people are trying to
Be discovered
And find
Someone to call home

Why do perfect people
Stay in their bubbles when there’s so much more to see

All the people getting nowhere
in this little game called love

A hard pill to swallow
I know,
But I think it’s time
We collide
