Halo

Album: Apocalyptic Love (2012)
  • Have you profited to my cold and shallow ways
    I'm the Devil you keep inside
    'Cause it's all I can do to stay solid every day
    Watching all of your days pass you by

    But the time has come
    To throw your halo down
    We may never live forever
    So you better live for now
    Don't deny it
    What you need ain't in the clouds
    Here it comes, here it comes
    Time to dirty up your halo

    Could be living so hard, but you waste your life away
    Still afraid to be what you are
    Still I beg you to try to start loving for today
    'Cause regrets gonna bury your heart

    But the time has come
    To throw your halo down
    We may never live forever
    So you better live for now
    Don't deny it
    What you need ain't in the clouds
    Here it comes, here it comes
    Time to dirty up your halo

    You will not obey, you will not obey, defy it
    I will lead the way, I will lead the way to burn you down

    But the time has come
    To throw your halo down
    We may never live forever
    So you better live for now
    Don't deny it
    What you need ain't in the clouds
    Here it comes, here it comes
    Time to dirty up your halo

    Put down your halo
    Put down your halo

    Here it comes, here it comes
    Time to dirty up your halo now Writer/s: SAUL HUDSON, MYLES R KENNEDY
