  • I can feel your eyes in the back of my head
    Burning, burning, burning
    Floating through the room as the hairs on my arms are
    Rising, rising, rising
    I'm chemically drawn closer to you
    Eyes wide, eyes wide open
    Will you be my future or just an escape?
    Love me, love me, love me

    You'll never get to heaven on a night like this

    Those nights when your friends are gone
    When you're holding on for someone to leave with
    Those nights when you crave someone
    To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    We are, we are

    Pulling at my t-shirt, your hands everywhere
    Rising, rising, rising
    As you trip and fall, dragging me up the stairs
    What's your, what's your name, now?

    You try to get to heaven on a night like this
    But you, you never get to heaven on a night like this

    Those nights when your friends are gone
    When you're holding on for someone to leave with
    Those nights when you crave someone
    To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    We are, we are

    The lights, the lights, the lights
    They cut a path across the room
    The lights, the lights, the lights
    A blinding look from me to you
    And I'll be your rabbit in the headlights
    We'll never get to heaven
    I'll be your rabbit in the headlights
    We'll never get to heaven

    Those nights when your friends are gone
    When you're holding on for someone to leave with
    Those nights when you crave someone
    To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
    Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
    We are, we are

    Yeah, yeah
