Called Out in the Dark

  • It's like we just can't help ourselves
    Cause we don't know how to back down
    We were called out to the streets
    We were called out to the towns, how the heavens they opened up
    Like arms of dazzling gold
    With our rain-washed histories well we do not need to be told

    Show me now
    Show me the arms aloft
    Every eye , trained on a different star
    This my chick
    This drunken semaphore, and I
    We are listening
    And we're not blind
    This is your life, this your time
    We are listening, and were not blind
    This is your life, this is your time

    I was called out in the dark
    By a choir of beautiful cheats
    And as the kids took back the parks
    You and I were left with the streets

    Show me now
    Show me the arms aloft
    Every eye, trained on a different star
    This my chick
    This drunken semaphore
    And I, we are listening
    And we're not blind
    This Is your life
    This is your time
    We are listening
    And we're not blind
    This is your life
    This is your time

    We are listening
    And we're not blind
    This is your life, this is your time
    We are listening
    And we're not blind
    This is your life, this is your time Writer/s: Garret Jacknife Lee, Gary Lightbody, Jonathan Graham Quinn, Nathan Connolly, Paul Wilson, Tom Simpson
