  • Oh

    One, two, three, four
    We're separated by a margin of a greater degree
    The same flesh and blood but in a different lane
    I read the remedy too, but my words
    They still sounded the same

    When we were young
    We thought we had the whole world figured out (figured out)
    Now all we do is speak in tongues (speak in tongues)
    We play a losing game
    Only now we hear the shouts fading out
    We flew into the sun

    Oh
    We flew into the sun

    I'm dedicated to the shadow that's been following me
    It caught me counting the cards, I guess the rules remain
    Oh, it was heavenly then
    But the devil's were calling my name

    When we were young
    We thought we had the whole world figured out (figured out)
    Now all we do is speak in tongues (speak in tongues)
    We play a losing game
    Only now we hear the shouts fading out
    We flew into the sun

    Is there something in your eye?
    Did you fall or were you just on a high?
    Everybody's so afraid they could die
    But they never once said
    Thank god we're alive, oh

    Is there something in your eye?
    Did you fall or were you just on a high?
    Everybody's so afraid they could die
    But they never once said
    Thank god we're alive

    When we were young
    We thought we had the whole world figured out (figured out)
    We flew into the sun
    We thought we had the whole world figured out (figured out)
    Now all we do is speak in tongues (speak in tongues)
    We play a losing game
    Only now we hear the shouts fading out
    We flew into the sun Writer/s: Adam Christianson, Alex Dean, Dan Searle, Josh Middleton, Sam Carter
