  • All of the black and white
    All of the contours
    Are laid out before me, now
    To leave a trace

    With all of the light and shame
    We take up our own space
    I'll find my own way back
    Back to the past tense

    A lifeline to highs and lows
    To seeing the bright side
    And I should know
    We wait for the afterglow
    To cover the blind side
    And I should know

    All of the empty thoughts
    All of the outlines
    Are laid out before us, now
    To leave a trace

    All of your words and mine
    They keep returning
    I'll find my own way back
    Back to the silence

    A lifeline to highs and lows
    To seeing the bright side
    And I should know
    We wait for the afterglow
    To cover the blind side
    And I should know

    I've given up all I can
    I've given up all I can
    I've given up all I can
    I've given up all I can Writer/s: IAIN ANDREW COOK, LAUREN EVE MAYBERRY, MARTIN CLIFFORD DOHERTY
