Invisible Empire

Album: Invisible Empire // Crescent Moon (2013)
  • I thought the candles gonna go out
    The wind was blowing and the door was open
    But the candles never went out, never went out

    The way found its way to the shore
    I thought it was a ripple and nothing more
    But the way found its way all the way to its shore

    Oh, oh, I wanna burn this house
    I know I wanna jump into the fire
    Oh,oh I gotta tear them down
    Pinnacles of my invisible empire

    I know the gamble never works twice
    All the destructions of the table and waited days
    But the thrill it feels so nice, you do it all again

    But I look to the gyps I loose
    standing on the platform with my neck in the noose
    But I know its not my time, not my time

    Oh, oh, I wanna burn this house
    I know I wanna jump into the fire
    Oh,oh I gotta tear them down
    Pinnacles of my invisible empire

    And if I do, all the things I do
    And I tell myself that I'm staying true
    I'll never stop, you know I'll never stop
    You know I'll never think about it
    Put it into all this time, that I would spend with it on my mind
    You know it never stopped, no, I'll never stop
    You know I'll always wonder about it
    I wondered about the wonder

    Oh, oh. We're a resting crown
    I know this dynasty is falling
    The crowd shouts for another round
    To see the ruin, the spectacular, diamonds, baby
    Ice birds, the minarets and the marketplaces
    The signal fires of my invisible empire

    Oh,oh,oh Writer/s: KATIE TUNSTALL, KT TUNSTALL
