First

Album: Hold My Home (2014)
  • Cheated and lied, broken so bad
    You made a vow, never get mad
    You played the game, though it's unfair
    They're all the same, who can compare?
    First you lose trust, then you get worried
    Night after night, bar after club
    Dropping like flies, who woke you up?
    On the front lawn, sprinklers turn on
    It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
    First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

    Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
    Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
    How am I the lucky one
    I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first

    There comes a time in a short life
    Turn it around, get a rewrite
    Call it a dark night of the soul
    Ticking of clocks, gravity's pull
    First you get close, and you get hurried

    Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
    Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
    How am I the lucky one, I do not deserve
    To wait around forever when you were there first

    You're growing silent, the silent treatment
    It's not inviting now, but don't deny what you meant
    You get excited, you get excited
    You got a feeling, oh, at least you can pretend
    You wanna light it, you wanna light it
    You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
    You get excited, you get excited

    Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
    Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
    How am I the lucky one?
    I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first
    Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
    Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
    How am I the lucky one?
    I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first

    First you get close, then you get worriedWriter/s: Dann Gallucci, Matthew Maust, Nathan Willett, Joe Plummer, Matthew Schwartz
