  • I saw your face in a photograph
    Oh how I wish that it could talk back
    I'd drive right off the earth to find you
    If it meant that I could see you tonight
    And I know you don't belong (know you don't belong)
    Know you don't belong to anyone
    No you can't be tamed love, and
    Maybe I was wrong (maybe I was wrong)
    Maybe I was wrong for this
    But you feel like the sun on my face

    So can we close the space between us now
    It's the distance we don't need (hey)
    Yeah, you're everything I love about
    The things I hate in me (hey)
    So come on, come on, come over now and
    Fix me with your grace
    'Cause I'm not too far and you're my favorite place

    I saw your face in the fire again
    I touched the flames and burned down everything
    I hear the sirens west of 8th now
    Wonder if you're hearin' them too
    And I know you don't belong (know you don't belong)
    Know you don't belong to anyone
    No you can't be tamed love
    Maybe I was wrong (maybe I was wrong)
    Maybe I was wrong for this
    But you feel like the perfect escape now
    (Just like the sun on my face)

    So can we close the space between us now
    It's the distance we don't need (hey)
    Yeah, you're everything I love about
    The things I hate in me (hey)
    So come on, come on, come over now and
    Fix me with your grace
    'Cause I'm not too far and you're my favorite place
    (Hey, hey, hey, hey)

    So come on, come on, come over now and
    Fix me with your grace
    'Cause I'm not too far and you're my favorite place Writer/s: Alexander Gaskarth, Phil Gornell
