  • Long night
    Caught up in the details
    Texts and calls and emails from my broken friends
    Long time
    Since I thought I could fix them
    Now everything is mixed up and it never ends

    Ooh, call up everyone I know and tell them
    I love them and their problems
    Hey, are we all as lonely as we say?
    Is a phone call all it takes?
    Why don't you tell me what you want?

    Nine to five in a nightmare, we're not scared
    We're bigger than the fear
    Run away with me somewhere, anywhere
    I'll tell you what you want to hear

    Hold tight
    To you when you were younger
    You felt like going under but you never did
    We could drive
    And scream at empty streets
    Put our song on repeat, it's like it never ends

    Ooh, water in the middle of the desert
    A glimpse of something better
    Hey, we will grow no matter where you plant us
    Color every canvas
    Why don't you tell me what you want?

    Nine to five in a nightmare, we're not scared
    We're bigger than the fear
    Run away with me somewhere, anywhere
    I'll tell you what you want to hear

    I know what you want but not what you need
    So why did you go and put your trust in me? X4

    Nine to five in a nightmare, we're not scared
    We're bigger than the fear
    Run away with me somewhere, anywhere
    I'll tell you what you want to hear Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
