Lights Out

Album: How Did We Get So Dark? (2017)
Charted: 96
  • Every time I'm with it alone
    It picks me up
    You just send me down
    I can feel it rushing under my skin
    You're a cage won't you let me in?
    On my toes
    Lock the door
    Pretty face
    Through the walls
    Don't know if I'd be so sure again

    My eyes are still burning red
    So turn the lights out
    You're not so hard to forget
    With all the lights out

    Every time I'm stuck in the ground
    Spin me round, won't you spin me round
    You're a void, a crack in the mirror
    See me now, if you could see me now
    You slipped through
    The night
    Then walked out
    Skin tight
    But you don't matter that much to me
    No you don't matter that much to me

    My eyes are still burning red
    So turn the lights out
    You're not so hard to forget
    With all the lights out
    So turn the lights out
    Just turn the lights out

    My eyes are still burning red
    So turn the lights out
    You're not so hard to forget
    With all the lights out Writer/s: Ben Thatcher, John Barrett, Michael James Kerr
