  • Can you just stay through the night?
    Turn down the bed and the blinds
    Before your turn around
    Can you just stay through the night?
    Let me breathe you in 'til gravity bends
    And we fall through the hole in the light
    Make this our kingdom
    Somewhere where good love conquers and not divide

    Cause I may not know a lot of things but
    I feel it in my chest
    Know I won't let the blue flame die
    We can't lose hope just yet
    'Cause it's once, just once in a lifetime
    And we're scared to love but it's alright
    I may not know a lot of things but
    I know that we're surefire, yeah
    Know that we're surefire, yeah

    Can't keep this bed warm on the left side
    When something is cold as a goodbye
    Why don't you turn around?
    Ignore all that shit from the outside
    The world is a nightmare
    Wake up and stay here
    Let me be on your side
    We'll make this our kingdom
    Somewhere where good love conquers and not divide

    And oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my God
    I'm so, I'm so, I'm so tired of fighting
    Let go, give in, let go and give up, oh

    I may not know a lot of things but
    I feel it in my chest
    Know I won't let the blue flame die
    We can't lose hope just yet
    'Cause it's once, just once in a lifetime
    And we're scared to love but it's alright
    I may not know a lot of things but
    I know that we're surefire
    Know that we're surefire

    And oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my God
    I'm so, I'm so, I'm so tired of fighting
    Let go, give in, let go and give up, oh

    I may not know a lot of things but
    I feel it in my chest
    If we just let the blue flame die
    The devil wins this bet
    Oh it's once, just once in a lifetime
    And you're scared to love but it's alright
    I may not know a lot of things but
    I know that we're surefire
    Know that we're surefire Writer/s: Blake Mills, John Stephens, Julia Michaels, Justin Tranter, Ludwig Goransson, Will Oldham

  • Susanne from Nigeria I heard this song on T. V less than two weeks ago. The lyrics made so much sense to me. It felt real and made me emotional because people face the story in that song everyday in their relationships. I belive love is a very powerful force and in the end, it'll always win!
  • Shine from PakistanI'm a Muslim girl. Fell in love with an American Catholic man. But our obstacles are real big. We are really far from each other. His family is not letting him convert into Muslim. From a couple of days we are not talking with each other just to forget each other. He used to give me hope by playing this song to me. I really love him. I can't forget him. This is just a song but I'm facing this thing in reality. It's breaking me and him everyday.
