Drowning Shadows

Album: In the Lonely Hour (Drowning Shadows Edition) (2015)
  • Running around chasing hearts
    Chasing bodies to fix the parts
    I don't know how I reached this place
    So far from heaven, so far from grace

    And I want to give in to the pressure
    'Cause I feel like the city's got the better of me
    Oh, this casual love isn't what it seems
    And I try to imagine something closer
    And somebody who is good for me
    I'm so tired of all this searching
    Do I, do I, do I, do I

    Go home to nothing or stay out for more?
    Give in to someone or lock down my door?
    Or drown all my shadows, drown them like before?
    Drowning shadows once more

    The more I drink, the more I drown
    If I'm not thinking, I won't lay down
    The more I rise above it all
    The less I care about the fall

    And I want to give in to the pressure
    'Cause I feel like the city's got the better of me
    Oh, this casual love isn't what it seems
    And I try to imagine something closer
    And somebody who is good for me
    I'm so tired of all this searching
    Do I, do I, do I, do I

    Go home to nothing or stay out for more?
    Give in to someone or lock down my door?
    Or drown all my shadows, drown them like before?
    Drown them shadows once more
    Once more
    Once more, ooh

    Go home to nothing or stay out for more?
    Give in to someone or lock down my door?
    Or drown all my shadows, drown them like before?
    I'm drowning them shadows once more Writer/s: Fraser T. Smith, Sam Smith
