  • Tore a line in the sun
    Like there's nothing to regret and nothing to prove
    Set my sights high enough
    So I see the turning tides are parting for you

    Taking back an empty threat
    More than you could ever know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side
    And I was holding on

    To try and not forget
    Hoping that you'd never know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side
    And I was holding on

    No more times second guessed
    Like there's nothing to forget and nothing to lose
    Hold my ground long enough
    Till I see the turning tides are coming from you

    Taking back an empty threat
    More than you could ever know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side
    And I was holding on

    To try and not forget
    Hoping that you'd never know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side

    If we wanna stay here, can we see the waves?
    They're spilling over us, filling our insides
    In the rising water, in the rising tides
    They're spilling over me, filling my insides
    If we wanna stay here, can we see the waves?
    They're spilling over us, filling our insides
    In the rising water, in the rising tides
    We wait for the fall
    (I gotta tell you)

    Maybe the water's high
    (I gotta tell you)
    But I can see the difference
    Maybe the water's high
    (I gotta tell you)
    But I can see the difference (I gotta tell you)
    Maybe the water's high
    (I gotta tell you)
    But I can see the difference (I gotta tell you)
    Maybe the water's high
    (I gotta tell you)
    But I know that this is different

    Taking back an empty threat
    More than you could ever know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side
    And I was holding on

    To try and not forget
    Hoping that you'd never know
    Take it back with no regrets
    I was better off when I was on your side
    And I was holding on Writer/s: IAIN ANDREW COOK, LAUREN EVE MAYBERRY, MARTIN CLIFFORD DOHERTY
