Up We Go

Album: Little Machines (2014)

  • Here in a familiar place
    We got our heads down
    And we pretend it's cause the night is dark
    And running out of space
    For us to run around
    But it's a dead end, and money's tight
    And it's been a long time of this

    Something is got to give
    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year with nothing to show
    From down this road
    It's only on we go, on we go
    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year, and I only know
    From down this low
    It's only up we go, up we go

    Let's get on another flight
    Maybe set out to sea
    Kick it up and shake a fist at it
    Cause death is harder to come by
    Than it is to breathe
    When you gotta make a break for it
    'Cause it's been a long time of this

    Something is got to give
    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year with nothing to show
    From down this road
    It's only on we go, on we go
    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year, and I only know
    From down this low
    It's only up we go, up we go

    Nothing gives easy
    Easy gives nothing
    I'm just tryin' a keep
    Income coming in
    Dawn is bound to break
    When the night is done
    Always darker days before brighter ones

    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year with nothing to show
    From down this road
    It's only on we go, on we go
    Everyone here is ready to go
    It's been a hard year, and I only know
    From down this low
    It's only up we go, up we go Writer/s: Lights Valerie Poxleitner, Thomas Salter
