Album: The Color Before the Sun (2014)

  • We carried on, unnoticed, thinking that
    All dreams were ours for the taking
    And now, dear love, we've found ourselves
    Back at the start of it all
    So starting incomplete

    Only now I've come to this moment in my life
    Bits and pieces to a puzzle, with no regrets
    But if I had just one chance left
    I'd hold onto her close with
    What little confidence I have
    And make no mistake, as your life's surely
    About to change for the better
    Now on your mark, get set, clock starts to count
    'Cause boy everything's about to go down

    So sleep tight, little Atlas
    'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
    That you're the weight of his anchor
    The love that is guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home

    I've had my share of leaving this retreat
    But never did it once feel anything like you, you see
    And if there's one good thing that comes from my away
    It's that you won't be anything like me
    Oh, and so, better for it you will be

    So sleep tight, little Atlas
    'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
    That you're the weight of his anchor
    The love that is guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home
    The love that's guiding him home

    So sleep tight, little Atlas
    'Cause when your daddy goes off, just you know
    That you're the weight of his anchor
    The love that is guiding him home

    So sleep tight, little Atlas
    'Cause when your daddy goes off
    Just when your daddy goes off
    That you're the weight of his anchor
    The love that is guiding him home

    There's no running away from what's been done here
    Will you sink with this ship or will you burn it down
    Now give us the man that you've been hiding
    'Cause this is your, this is your life, this is your life now

    There's no running away, there's no running away
    Will you sink with this ship or, will, will you burn it down
    Now give us the man that you've been hiding
    'Cause this is your, this is your life, this is your life now

    This is your life now
    This is your
    This is, this this is, this is your life now Writer/s: Claudio Sanchez
