Us Against The World

Album: Mylo Xyloto (2011)
  • Oh morning come bursting, the clouds amen
    Lift off this blindfold, let me see again
    Bring back the water, let your ships roll in
    In my heart she left a hole

    The tightrope that I'm walking just sways and ties
    The devil as he's talking with those angel's eyes
    And I just want to be there when the lightning strikes
    And the saints go marching in

    And sing slow it down
    Through chaos as it swirls
    It's us against the world

    Like a river to a raindrop, I lost a friend
    My drunken as a Daniel in a lion's den
    And tonight I know it all has to begin again
    So whatever you do, don't let go

    And if we could float away
    Fly up to the surface and just start again
    And lift off before trouble
    Just erodes us in the rain

    Just erodes us in the rain
    Just erodes us and see roses
    In the rain

    Sing slow it down
    Slow it down

    Through chaos as it swirls
    It's us against the world
    Through chaos as it swirls
    It's us against the world Writer/s: BRIAN PETER GEORGE ENO, GUY BERRYMAN, JONATHAN MARK BUCKLAND, WILLIAM CHAMPION, CHRISTOPHER ANTHONY JOHN MARTIN, GUY RUPERT BERRYMAN
