Just Smoke

Album: Wilder Mind (2015)
  • Tell my thoughts to resign
    And lift you from my mind
    I'm not ready I'm not strong enough
    To cradle the weight of your love

    Just take a minute take a breath
    Lay down your head on my sunken chest
    I saw a flicker then just smoke
    But as you left I was calling your name at the night

    Thought we were done
    Young love would keep us young
    I thought we were done
    And young love would keep us young

    I thought we fell to the ground
    I see you whimper with no sound
    Open my mouth to breath some words of peace
    But the silence gives nothing back to me

    So I'll be a shadow of the flame
    I lent down to kiss you then erased my name
    And I'll be a whisper on the wind
    My hands are shaking from holding so tight for so long

    The flame burnt out in our empty hands
    But now I see it's got nothing to do
    It's got nothing to do with

    You thought we were done
    Young love would keep us young
    I thought we were done
    And young love would keep us young

    (Why do I keep falling) I thought we were done
    (Why do I keep falling) And young love would keep us young
    (Why do I keep falling) I thought we were done
    (Why do I keep falling) And young love would keep us young Writer/s: BENJAMIN WALTER DAVID LOVETT, EDWARD JAMES MILTON DWANE, MARCUS OLIVER JOHNSTONE MUMFORD, WINSTON AUBREY ALADAR MARSHALL
