  • It's all black
    Your kingdom's turned me blank
    I'm paper and I'm snow
    I'm lost, but I can't slow
    I'm lost, but not alone

    It's so light, the dark it burns my eyes
    My bones, they used to glow
    But now I'm throwing stones
    I'm losing where to go

    Shadows on my back are moving slow
    They twist behind like white leaves in the wind
    And as I ride, these horses will take flight
    Falling hard, falling high, through your arms
    Shadows in my head don't need no light
    They stay through the night

    Without you, my lips are turning blue
    The water pulls me down
    And drowns under your sound
    This silence booms so loud

    I'm locked up, your kingdom's like a drug
    The chains are made of glass
    I'm breaking through your blood
    I'm never strong enough

    Shadows on my back are moving slow
    They twist behind like white leaves in the wind
    And as I ride, these horses will take flight
    Falling hard, falling high, through your arms
    Shadows in my head don't need no light
    They stay through the night

    To every rose with bloody thorns
    It lift you up and lets you fall
    To rivers flowing 'yond the factory halls
    Your kingdom's come, it's waiting still
    The space between you'll never fill
    I tried, but I could not change your mind

    I dance around, and I lost you now
    I breathed you out, I kept you out
    But if I could, I'd turn back around Writer/s: Charlotte Aitchison, Holly Hardy, Rostam Batmanglij, Simon Le Bon
