False Alarms

Album: All That Echoes (2013)
  • Far across this red horizon
    I am walking down the line
    I am picking up the pieces
    That this storm has left behind

    After all the clouds have fallen
    I would breach the battle ground
    Turn your darkness into the light
    Turn your silence into sound

    But I can't cage you in my arms
    When my heart is jumping forward
    To avoid your false alarms

    And you can't tell me not to stay
    When I opened up the window
    And I watched you fly away

    Have you raised the final anchor?
    Have you cut the mast-sail free?
    Sending offer to redemption
    Like a funeral at sea

    I will always hear you calling
    You're the sway of falling leaves
    Like a bird you'll spiral onward
    And you'll know just where I'll be

    And I can't cage you in my arms
    When my heart is jumping forward
    To avoid your false alarms

    And you can't tell me not to stay
    When I opened up the window
    And I watched you fly away

    And I can't cage you in my arms
    When my heart is jumping forward
    To avoid your false alarms

    And you can't tell me not to stay
    When I opened up the window
    And I watched you fly away

    And I am closing up my window
    'Till I see a blue horizon
    And the quiet call of love will fly my way Writer/s: MENDEZ LESTER A, JOSH GROBAN
