  • I remember the rise
    We were running backyard to yard
    Wasn't scared of going too far, staying out til it's too dark

    Now daylight don't make it right
    And you would really know this
    Closed hearts make closed minds
    I won't tell you it's all butterflies and roses
    When I back in time

    When we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    There's not much comfort in this place
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe
    When you can't fight the bitter taste
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe

    I don't remember it all
    But I know that I was invincible
    Like the heroes in the cartoons
    Saving lives through my living room

    Now daylight don't make it right
    And you would really know this
    Closed hearts make closed minds
    I won't tell you it's all butterflies and roses
    When I back in time

    When we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    There's not much comfort in this place
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe
    When you can't fight the bitter taste
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe

    I know that I'm a fighter
    Yeah, always been a fighter
    But I tried to play with fire and I got burned
    Don't know how to help us
    Yeah, I'm feeling kind of helpless
    Yeah, maybe you so selfish if it don't wanna hurt
    I know that I'm a fighter
    Yeah, always been a fighter
    But I tried to play with fire and I got burned
    Don't know how to help us
    Yeah, I'm feeling kind of helpless
    Yeah, maybe you so selfish if it don't wanna hurt

    There's not much comfort in this place
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe
    When you can't fight the bitter taste
    Ah-aha-aha-aha-aha I'll keep you safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe
    Back then when we were ah-aha-aha-aha-aha safe Writer/s: GRACE TANDON, JOEL LITTLE, LALEH POURKARIM
