Figure 8

Album: Halcyon (2012)
Charted: 33
  • Breathe your smoke into my lungs
    In the back of the car with you I stare into the sun
    Still not too old to die young
    The lovers hold on to everything
    And others hold on to anything

    I chased your love around a figure 8
    I need you more than I can take
    You promised forever and a day
    And then you take it all away
    (And then you take it all away)

    Place a kiss on my cheekbone
    Then you vanish me
    I'm buried in the snow
    But something tells me I'm not alone
    But lovers hold on to everything
    And others hold on to anything

    I chased your love around a figure 8
    I need you more than I can take
    You promised forever and a day
    And then you take it all away

    So, Lovers hold on to everything
    And others hold to anything
    So, Lovers hold on to everything
    And others hold to anything

    I chased your love around a figure 8
    I need you more than I can take
    You promised forever and a day
    And then you take it all away

    I chased your love around a figure 8
    I need you more than I can take
    You promised forever and a day
    And then you take it all away
    (And then you take it all away)Writer/s: ROCKY MORRIS, RUFIO SANDILANDS
