  • What would you do
    If it all came back to you?
    Each crest of each wave
    Bright as lightning

    What would you say
    If you had to leave today?
    Leave everything behind
    Even though for once, you're shining

    Standing on higher ground
    When you hear the sounds
    You realize its just the wind
    And you notice it matters who and what you let under your skin

    If put to the test
    Would you step back from the line of fire?
    Hold everything back
    All emotion set aside it

    Convince yourself
    Someone else
    Hide from the world
    Your lack of confidence
    What you choose to believe in
    Takes you as you fall
    Takes you as you fall

    No one else around you
    No one to understand you
    No one to hear your calls
    Look through all your dark corners
    You're backed up against the wall
    Step back from the line of fire

    What would you do
    If it all came back to you?
    Each crest of each wave
    Bright as lightning
    Do the same as you

    What you choose to believe in
    Takes you as you fall

    No one else around you
    No one to understand you
    No one to hear your calls
    Look through all your dark corners
    You're backed up against the wall
    Step back from the line of fire Writer/s: Araya Elias Assegahegn, José González, Tobias Ingvar Winterkorn
