High Enough To Carry You Over

Album: Every Open Eye (2015)

  • No more barricades, slowly diffusing
    I'll be leaving now, nobody's losing
    If you could play a part, stay in resistance
    Every fault would fade into the distance

    Run if you like
    All of the things that you left behind
    Hold me down
    You can't deny and I can't deny
    Open your eyes
    I'll look away and you come around
    To build your words
    High enough to carry you over

    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)
    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)

    No more clarity, only confusion
    Every focused thought, just an illusion
    If I could see you now, if you would listen
    Every fault would fade into the distance

    Run if you like
    All of the things that you left behind
    Hold me down
    You can't deny and I can't deny
    Open your eyes
    I'll look away and you come around
    To build your words
    High enough to carry you over

    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)
    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)

    And you are
    If I only hadn't given you up
    If you only hadn't given me up
    And you are
    If I only hadn't given you up
    Losin' my breath and leaving' the rest

    Run if you like
    All of the things that you left behind
    Hold me down
    You can't deny and I can't deny
    Open your eyes
    I'll look away and you come around
    To build your words
    High enough to carry you over

    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)
    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)

    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up, me up)
    And I never would've given you up
    (Never would've given you up, you up)
    If you only hadn't given me up
    (Only hadn't given me up) Writer/s: IAIN ANDREW COOK, LAUREN EVE MAYBERRY, MARTIN CLIFFORD DOHERTY
