Grip

Album: Other People’s Heartache Pt. 4 (2018)
  • As the night time bleeds into the day
    Tomorrow spills across the sky
    And the sun's a harsh reminder why
    We are feeling barely human

    We don't know what's good for us
    'Cause if we did, we might not do it
    Who knows where our limits lie?
    We won't discover 'til we push it

    I should just walk away, walk away
    But it grips me, it grips me
    But I should call it a day and make my way
    Oh, it grips me
    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    ('Cause the devil's got my arms)
    And it pulls me back into the night
    But I should just walk away, away
    Oh, it grips me
    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    And it pulls me back into the night

    We got drunk on this unholy wine
    To deliver us from our old minds
    The promise of a better time
    'Til we're feeling barely human

    We don't know what's good for us
    'Cause if we did, we might not do it
    Who knows where our limits lie?
    We won't discover 'til we push it

    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    ('Cause the devil's got my arms)
    And it pulls me back into the night
    Well, I should just walk away, away
    Oh, it grips me
    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    And it pulls me back into the night
    The devil's got my arms
    And it pulls me back into the night

    I would rather forget and wash my memory clean
    Oh, I would rather forget and wash my memory clean
    I would rather forget (I would rather forget)
    Wash my memory clean (wash my memory clean)
    I would rather forget (I would rather forget)
    Wash my memory clean

    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    And it pulls me back into the night
    The devil's got my arms
    'Cause the devil's got my arms
    And it pulls me back into the night
    And it pulls me back into the night Writer/s: Dan Smith, Espen Berg, Joakim Haukaas, Mark Crew, Simen Eriksrud, Thomas Eriksen
