Parachute

Album: The Peace And The Panic (2017)
  • It's another day
    Wanna get away from here
    There's a plane out on a runway
    Gonna run away from here
    'Cause the rain is so terribly dull
    And it bores me
    Yeah, misery adores me

    I wanna break out and get away
    I wanna just try and live for me
    'Cause if we don't try then we won't believe that we could have had it
    I wanna let go, and fall for you
    And when it gets rough, be your parachute
    I wanna do the things that you only read about
    Are you ready?

    I'm done with small town politics
    I need to make my way to where the action is
    I'm done with it, so the question is
    Are you coming with?
    'Cause baby, if you like, I'll take you there
    Imagine all the places we could go to disappear
    Or we could turn the light off and go back to bed
    Stare at the stars on your ceiling and pretend that we're somewhere else

    I wanna break out and get away
    I wanna just try and live for me
    'Cause if we don't try then we won't believe that we could have had it
    I wanna let go, and fall for you
    And when it gets rough, be your parachute
    I wanna do the things that you only read about
    Are you ready?

    We don't need a God to take a leap of faith
    Listen when I say that if we don't try (that if we don't try)
    Then we won't believe (then we won't believe)

    I wanna break out and get away
    I wanna just try and live for me
    'Cause if we don't try then we won't believe
    That we could have had it
    I wanna let go, and fall for you
    And when it gets rough, be your parachute
    I wanna do the things that you only read about
    Are you ready?
    Are you ready?
    'Cause I'm ready
    I wanna do the things that you only read about
    Are you ready? Writer/s: BENEDICT KIERAN JAMES BARLOW, DANIEL WASHINGTON, MATTHEW RICHARD WEST, MICHAEL JOSEPH GREEN, PHILIP MICHAEL THORPE-EVANS, SAMUEL JOSEPH BOWDEN, SEBASTIAN MATTHEW JAMES BARLOW
