  • And if the world stops spinning there'd be no sign
    No future love, only days behind
    I'd call on you
    No matter what you put me through
    And if the skies above turn to crimson red
    Hear the memories, all you said
    I'd call on you
    No matter what you put me through

    First you jump then get wings
    Escaping all that hurts you
    The traumas that they put you through
    First you fall then fly in
    You're taking in the new view
    Becoming all you're meant to

    And if the world stops spinning there'd be no end
    Every twist, every turn, back again
    I'd call on you
    No matter what you put me through
    At first you jump into a world that's free
    Where all that's Heaven-sent is now reality
    I'd call on you
    The only one that pulls me through

    First you jump then get wings
    Forgetting all the voices
    Silence deep in your head
    You once give up, now soaring
    Heading for the clear view
    No more worry haunts you

    And if the world stops spinning
    And if the world stops spinning
    And if the world stops

    First you jump then get wings
    Escaping all that hurts you
    The traumas that they put you through
    First you fall then fly in
    You're taking in the new view
    Becoming what you're meant to Writer/s: Charles Burchill, Gerard Grimes, Jim Kerr
