Every Time You Go

  • Every time you go
    Every time you go

    It starts with a picture
    And it sits in your frame
    And we part with a letter
    And it ends in my name
    It starts with forever
    And it ends with a touch
    And I know that you're clever
    And I don't ask for much oh

    Maybe we forgot all the things we are
    When we are together

    You said I'm arresting
    You said I had heat
    I really thought that we would go further
    The second time we'd meet
    'Cause I'm tired of trying to keep you
    All I want to do is sleep
    But perhaps when I'm sleeping
    You'll get back on your feet

    Maybe we forgot all the things we are
    When we are together

    Wake me up
    Wake me up
    Stop my fall
    Every time you go
    Tape me up
    Then break me up
    Ever so gently
    When I'm at my weakest
    It's not so hard
    Every time you go

    I run out to meet you
    When I knew the storm had come
    And I felt the rain on your face
    And the damage you have done
    And I know what you're thinking
    It will never be the end
    And when the storm is over
    You won't see me again
    Do know all the regrets I paid
    For all the times I saved we were together

    Wake me up
    Stop my fall
    Every time you go
    Tape me up
    Then break me up
    Ever so gently
    When I'm my weakest
    It's not so hard

    Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
    Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
    Maybe we forgot, are we awake, or not?
    Maybe we forgot

    Wake me up
    Wake me up
    Stop my fall
    Every time you go
    Tape me up
    Then break me up
    Ever so gently
    When I'm at my weakest

    Wake me up
    Wake me up
    Stop my fall
    Every time you go
    Tape me up
    Then break me up
    Ever so gently
    When I'm at my weakest
    It's not so hard
    Every time you go Writer/s: FINLAY GRAHAM DOW SMITH, ELENA JANE GOULDING, JOHN FREDERIK FORTIS
