  • Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I have to question the hand that I hold close
    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I have to silence the words that you fear most

    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    Are we destined to hit the ground below?
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    We're at the end of a burning tightrope

    Now I'm waiting on the corner in the back of your mind
    It's a lonely place to live, and I got nowhere to hide
    'Cause you told me that you'd never be afraid of heights again
    Nobody ever thought that we could make it this high
    You're the only one I'd follow 'til the end of time
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    Together I know, together I know
    That we'd burn like a rocket's afterglow
    Together I know, together I know
    We could conquer the stars beyond this world

    We let it all go, we let it all go
    I'm just a voice on a broken radio
    We let it all go, we let it all go
    We got lost in the constellations

    Now I'm waiting on the corner in the back of your mind
    It's a lonely place to live, and I got nowhere to hide
    'Cause you told me that you'd never be afraid of heights again
    Nobody ever thought that we could make it this high
    You're the only one I'd follow 'til the end of time
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    And after all these years, and all of this time
    Darling, if I'm still a question in your mind
    Just say the words and this will end

    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me we should never be afraid of heights again
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    You told me that you'd never be afraid of heights
    If we fall, we fall together baby, don't think twice again

    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I hear your voice on a broken radio
    Wherever I go, wherever I go
    I know we'll burn like a rocket's afterglow
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    So are we destined to hit the ground below?
    Don't ever let go, don't ever let go
    Are we just watching the final chapter close? Writer/s: AARON SOLOWONIUK, BEN KOWALEWICZ, IAN D'SA, JON GALLANT
