  • I was afraid of coming undone
    Being a burden, being a son
    I was afraid of the look in my eye
    The tears on your face in the desolate night

    'Cause when you're afraid of everything
    Everything is a start for nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares, nightmares
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    If I die tomorrow, would you be upset?
    Or would be the one coming to get me?
    Fallin' by the wind side of the never changing
    So tell me it's alright

    If you can reason, if you can stay
    To put all the faith in the palm of my hand
    I will protect you, I will defend
    It never gets you ever again

    'Cause when you're afraid of everything
    Everything is a start for nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares, nightmares
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    If I die tomorrow, would you be upset?
    Or would be the one coming to get me?
    Fallin' by the wind side of the never changing
    So tell me it's alright

    Maybe I'm just dreaming
    Maybe I was wrong
    Maybe I was right
    'Cause I can't imagine distances in our faiths
    Is there any?

    Nightmares, nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares
    Nightmares, nightmares
    Oh oh oh oh Writer/s: EMMA RICHARDSON, MATT HAYWARD, RUSSELL MARSDEN
