  • I'm waiting for my moment to come
    I'm waiting for the movie to begin
    I'm waiting for a revelation
    I'm waiting for someone to count me in

    'Cause now
    I only see my dreams
    In everything I touch
    Feel their cold hands on
    Everything that I love
    Cold like some
    Magnificent skyline
    Out of my reach
    But always
    In my eye line now

    We're tumbling down
    We're spiraling
    Tied up to the ground
    We're spiraling

    I fashioned you
    From jewels and stone
    I made you
    In the image of myself
    I gave you
    Everything you wanted
    So you would never know
    Anything else

    But every time
    I reach for you
    You slip
    Through my fingers
    Into cold sunlight
    Laughing at the things
    That I had planned
    The map of my world gets
    Smaller as I sit here
    Pulling at the loose
    Threads now

    We're tumbling down
    We're spiraling
    Tied up to the ground
    We're spiraling
    When we fall in love
    We're just falling
    In love with ourselves
    We're spiraling

    Did you wanna be a winner?
    Did you wanna be an icon?
    Did you wanna be famous?
    Did you wanna be the president?
    Did you wanna start a war?
    Did you wanna have a family?
    Did you wanna be in love?
    Did you wanna be in love?

    I never saw the light
    I never saw the light
    I waited up all night
    But I never saw the light

    When we fall in love
    We're just falling
    In love with ourselves
    We're spiraling
    We're tumbling down
    We're spiraling
    Tied up to the ground
    We're spiraling Writer/s: RICHARD DAVID HUGHES, TIMOTHY JAMES RICE-OXLEY, TOM CHAPLIN
