  • Kill the lights
    There's something wrong with today
    This isn't me
    This is on you
    All I can say, all I can do is wait

    Hold on
    We are birds in your hand
    Brace yourself
    One in the air, ten in the sand
    Clip my wings and let me fall to you

    If I have to wake up
    Would you stop the rain
    If I try to fly away
    Open your arms and
    Wake up

    Take a dive
    Fill your lungs with summer rain
    Pace yourself
    Heavy the heart, steady the hand
    One last taste of milk and gasoline

    Too long
    In a lunatic parade
    Aces high
    One of a kind, ten of a pair
    Lifted up and crashing down on you

    If I have to wake up
    Would you stop the rain
    If I try to fly away
    Open your eyes
    Wake up
    Pull me to the ground
    If I have to fall down
    Let me fall to you Writer/s: John Dyer Baizley Jr, Nicholas Cameron Jost, Peter Todd Adams, Sebastian Martin Thomson
