Glory

Album: Wild World (2016)
  • Deep in a corner of the night
    We were lying in the middle of the road
    Counting the planes as they flew by
    Inconceivable imagining them go
    And drunk we set the world to rise
    As we fell and hit our heads upon the curb
    You make me laugh until I die
    Can you think of any better way to choke?

    Stories told to me and stories told to you
    And did you ever feel like they were ringing true?

    And all their words were glory
    Well they all, they sounded empty
    When we're looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven
    Way down here upon the ground
    When we're lying in the dark
    There's no looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven

    Not everything had gone to plan
    But we made the best of what we had, you know
    Passing the drink from hand to hand
    We admit we really know nothing at all

    Stories told to me and stories told to you
    And was it feeling real, and they were ringing true?

    And all their words were glory
    Well they all, they sounded empty
    When we're looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven
    Way down here upon the ground
    When we're lying in the dark
    There's no looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven

    I'll take my chances on the curb here with you
    We watched the planes leave us behind
    On the curb here with you
    We watched the planes leave us behind
    And, and then you put your hand in mine
    And pulled me back from things divine
    Stop looking up for heaven, waiting to be buried

    And all their words were glory
    Well they all, they sounded empty
    When we're looking up for heaven
    Looking up for heaven
    And way down here upon the ground
    When we're lying in the dark
    There's no looking up for heaven
    Looking upWriter/s: MARK CREW, DANIEL SMITH
