Lungs

Album: The Bones of What You Believe (2013)
  • How long, til you leave it
    You should know that
    We're alone this time
    Keep your, self a secret
    You should know that
    I will sell you a future you don't want
    Like I did last time
    I won't go slow
    All the things you tell yourself
    Offer no resolution

    You know that
    This will break us
    But you push us
    As far as we can go
    Taking
    Every chance to
    Find solutions
    That never make anyone happy
    We are done this time
    You don't owe me
    Take a
    Final look at me
    Take it and drink it in

    Breathe through me
    Fill up your lungs with us
    I will keep e-very-thing
    You give me
    Til the time
    We let go

    Breathe through me
    Fill up your lungs with us
    I will keep e-very-thing
    You give me
    Til the time
    We let go

    Keep me
    In your eyeline
    Keep believing
    What you said before
    I won't
    Change direction
    I will tell you
    That everything's moving too slowly
    Just another lie
    One more untruth
    You won't ever see through me
    You will still drink it in

    Breathe through me
    Fill up your lungs with us
    I will keep e-very-thing
    You give me
    Til the time
    We let go

    You know that
    This will break us
    But you push us
    As far as we can go
    Taking
    Every chance to
    Find solutions
    That never make anyone happy
    We are done this time
    You don't owe me
    Take a
    Final took at me
    Take it Writer/s: IAIN ANDREW COOK, LAUREN EVE MAYBERRY, MARTIN CLIFFORD DOHERTY
