Life To Come

Album: Wonderful Wonderful (2017)
  • I didn't see this coming, I admit it
    But if you think I'll buckle forget it
    I told you that I'd be the one
    I'll be there in the life to come

    You think I lost my vision but I didn't
    It sounds like heaven but it isn't
    Through fields of amber we will run
    Somewhere in the life to come

    This is not a shakedown
    Let go of the blame
    Have a little faith in me, girl
    Just dropkick the shame
    Uncover your face, girl
    Let go of the blame
    Have a little faith in me
    Just dropkick the shame

    Call my name
    Call my name
    If you call my name
    I will run whether or not it's tonight
    Or the life to come
    Or the life to come

    I know sometimes you think that I regret it
    But I don't remember stumbling when I said it
    I told you that I'd be the one
    I was talking about the life to come

    I know it ain't a cakewalk (I'm not gonna back down)
    Let go of the blame (let go of the blame)
    Have a little faith in me, girl
    Just dropkick the shame

    If you call my name
    I will run whether or not it's tonight
    Or the life to come
    Or the life to come

    If you call my name
    I will run whether or not it's tonight
    Or the life to come
    Or the life to come

    Or the life to come
    If you call my name
    If you call my name
    I will run whether or not it's tonight
    Or the life to come
    Or the life to come

    This is not a shakedown (this is not a shakedown)
    Let go of the blame (let go of the blame)
    Have a little faith in me, girl (have a little faith in me)
    Just dropkick the shame (dropkick the shame) Writer/s: ALEX CAMERON, BRANDON FLOWERS, GARRET LEE, MARK AUGUST STOERMER, RONNIE JR. VANNUCCI, RYAN B. TEDDER
