  • I miss the sound of your voice
    And I miss the rush of your skin
    And I miss the still of the silence
    As you breathe out and I breathe in

    If I could walk on water
    If I could tell you what's next
    I'd make you believe
    I'd make you forget

    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love
    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love

    I miss the sound of your voice
    Loudest thing in my head
    And I ache to remember
    All the violent, sweet
    Perfect words that you said

    If I could walk on water
    If I could tell you what's next
    I'd make you believe
    I'd make you forget

    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love
    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love

    I miss the pull of your heart
    I taste the sparks on your tongue
    I see angels and devils
    And God, when you come on
    Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on

    Sing sha la la la
    Sing sha la la la la

    Ooh Ooh Ooh

    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love
    So come on, get higher, loosen my lips
    Faith and desire and the swing of your hips
    Just pull me down hard
    And drown me in love

    It's all wrong, it's all wrong
    It's all wrong, it's so right
    So come on, get higher
    So come on and get higher
    'Cause everything works, love
    Everything works in your arms Writer/s: Mark Weinberg, Matt Nathanson
