  • Shaking heads of dreamless people
    Need to know if I can let go
    Color blind 'cos now we're too close
    And I cry but there's no use

    On the back of an endless night
    Flying under a lonely sky
    And if I turn around there'll be no light
    I know the danger but it's alright

    Pick up the light, leave it darling
    You know that I can take it
    Pick up the light, leave it darling

    We are young, we're foolish to the night
    We just gotta get through this
    The loneliest heights
    Falling fearless, so young, so foolish

    We left no bones, we left no traces
    Surreal sleeps and we weren't waking
    Coming back and we can't shake it
    Please ignite these endless skies

    Pick up the light, leave it darling
    You know that I can tell
    Pick up the light, leave it darling

    We are young, we're foolish to the night
    We just gotta get through this
    The loneliest heights
    Falling fearless, so young, so foolish

    Pick up the light, leave it darling
    Pick up the light, leave it darling
    Pick up the light, leave it darling
    Pick up the light, leave it darling

    I'm going, I'm going
    I'm going, I'm going
    Oh, I'm going, I'm going
    I'm going, I'm going

    We are young, we're foolish to the night
    We just gotta get through this
    The loneliest heights
    Falling fearless, so young, so foolish

    We've got no care
    All we see is blurred-out faces
    All we see is blurred-out faces
    All we see is blurred-out faces
