  • Everybody's got their demons
    Even wide awake or dreaming
    I'm the one who ends up leaving
    Make it okay

    See a war, I wanna fight it
    See a match, I wanna strike it
    Every fire I've ignited
    Faded to grey

    But now that I'm broken
    Now that you know it
    Caught up in a moment
    Can you see inside?

    'Cause I've got a jet black heart
    And there's a hurricane underneath it
    Trying to keep us apart
    I write with a poison pen
    But these chemicals moving between us
    Are the reason to start again

    Now I'm holding on for dear life
    There's no way that we could rewind
    Maybe there's nothing after midnight
    That could make you stay

    But now that I'm broken
    And now that you know it
    Caught up in a moment
    Can you see inside?

    'Cause I've got a jet black heart
    And there's a hurricane underneath it
    Trying to keep us apart
    I write with a poison pen
    But these chemicals moving between us
    Are the reason to start again

    The blood in my veins
    Is made up of mistakes
    Let's forget who we are
    And dive into the dark
    As we burst into color
    Returning to life

    'Cause I've got a jet black heart
    And there's a hurricane underneath it
    Trying to keep us apart
    I write with a poison pen
    But these chemicals moving between us
    Are the reason to start again

    The blood in my veins
    Is made up of mistakes (to start again)
    Let's forget who we are
    And dive into the dark Writer/s: CALUM HOOD, DAVID HODGES, JON GREEN, MICHAEL CLIFFORD
