  • This moment right here is one we can't suspend
    Your breathe and mine tells me just where I have been
    You know the song of long lost cause
    We're running in circles and coming back again

    Now could I go the long way
    Taking the easy way down?
    If I was wrong would you show me
    Where all that I lost can be found?

    'Cause you can shoot me straight
    Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
    Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
    What goes around now is coming back down today
    You can shoot me straight away

    Don't wanna fight and you don't wanna lose control
    We're losing light and the night is getting cold
    Everyone wants to hear their story told
    We're not the only ones, we're not the only ones

    And now could I go the long way
    Taking the easy way down?
    If I was wrong, would you show me
    Where all that I lost can be found?

    'Cause you can shoot me straight
    Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
    Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
    What goes around now is coming back down today
    You can shoot me straight away

    And you wanted to fly and leave it behind
    But you know it's gonna come back one day

    'Cause you can shoot me straight
    Straight to the heart 'cause you already have it
    Say what you wanna say, we're coming out of the gray
    What goes around now is coming back down today
    You can shoot me straight away Writer/s: MATHEW KEARNEY
