lyrics

I’ve had people tell me that I’m just
Living with my head in the clouds
Cause I still think that fictional stories are
Better than the world around

I don’t wanna brag but I kinda wanna say that
My worlds are better than yours
Cause I’ve done things that you wouldn’t believe and
They’ve opened up a lot of doors

I’ve got a lotta life left to live between the pages
But if you think you’re gonna stop me then let me say this

I’ve been to Middle Earth and Hogwarts
From LA to New York
I’ve fought demons and monsters
And sailed ships with the rulers
I may not wear a crown but I’ve
Travelled all around
Yet here I am
Running my bookish empire from my bed

The best thing about books is that
You can turn into someone else
A boy with a sword or a girl with a fist
It doesn’t matter what cards you’re dealt

And even in the darkest night you can
Love until you die
Cause nothing matters when no one’s left
All that’s left are the words they write

I’ve got a lotta life left to live between the pages
But if you think you’re gonna stop me then let me say this

I’ve been to Panem and Narnia
From Amsterdam to Florida
I’ve met vampires and werewolves
And drank wine in Westeros
I may not wear a crown but I’ve
Travelled all around
Yet here I am
Running my bookish empire from my bed

Every day’s a new adventure
Every night’s a dream
Every time I read the future
It’s better than the life I lead

And some say it’s just stupid
But I still disagree
Everyone I met while reading hold
Little pieces of me

I’ve got a lotta life left to live between the pages
But if you think you’re gonna stop me then let me say this

I’m friends with Harry and Percy
With Wanda and Ruby
I’ve fought battles and killed things
I’ve jumped trains and been kissed
I may not wear a crown but I’ve
Travelled all around
Yet here I am
Running my bookish empire from my bed

Cause we have
Karou and Katniss and Warner and Magnus we have
Vida and Maxon and Luna and Jason
Four and Jem and Ginny too
All of them are me and you
We will try our best to live
All our souls have left to give
Is love
