  • Lyrics
  • I waded through the darkest fields you'd imagine
    Your pretty face sketched on the barrel of my gun
    And I know you'll be the first to welcome me
    When I climb into eternity
    Oh, oh

    The forest always kept us warm
    But it doesn't feel like home anymore
    And I know there's bigger mountains where you are
    And a better climate for my heart
    Oh, oh

    I've been racing the clock
    And I've run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms

    Though many battles I have won
    I lost too many friends I could count on
    And I know they'll be the first to welcome me
    When I parachute into eternity
    Oh, oh

    I've been racing the clock
    And I've run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms

    And the rain beat down on the rooftops
    But there was no sound
    There was no sound
    And all my friends and family carried me
    They carried me home
    Carried me home

    I've been racing the clock
    And I've run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms
    I've been racing the clock
    And I've run out of steam
    I am ready for my final symphony
    Oh my body is weak
    But my soul is still strong
    I am ready to rest in your arms
    Oh, ohWriter/s: CAREY SUTHON WILLETTS, JOEL LASLETT POTT, STEVEN ALEXANDER ROBERTS, TIMOTHY JOHN WANSTALL
