  • One foot in front of the other
    One foot back to counter it
    Days like these you've got to find it in some other way
    It's all or nothing baby

    Avalanche, start inside of me
    Avalanche, down through the trees
    Avalanche, start inside of me
    Avalanche, hell down through the trees

    If everyone's a casualty
    Then take your time there ain't no trouble
    If the weather's fine and we're feeling crazy
    There's always drinks and dancing in the rubble
    I'm spinning and you're spinning
    The world's spinning and we're laughing
    And I'm charming, the devil's charming
    And we're ruined but we're still building
    And I'm selling and you're counting
    The world's stopping but we keep going
    And we're ruthless and we're cunning
    And I'm heir to it all

    Days like these you've got to find it in some other way
    It's all or nothing baby

    Avalanche, start inside of me
    Avalanche, down through the trees
    Avalanche, start inside of me
    Avalanche, hell down through the trees

    The key is to your kingdom
    The key is to your heart
    Neither one a doorway
    But both of them a part
    So one foot in front of the other Writer/s: Matthew Good

  • Aria from Omaha, Nelisten to this song at night, all alone, lying on your cold kitchen floor with your eyes closed
  • Simon from Montreal, CanadaThis is for sure one of my favorites.
