Everlasting Arms

Album: Modern Vampires of the City (2013)
  • I took your council and came to ruin
    Lead me to myself, leave me to myself
    I took your council and came to ruin
    Leave me to myself, lead me to myself
    Oh I was made to live without you
    But I'm never gonna understand, never understand
    Oh I was born to live without you
    But I'm never gonna understand, never understand

    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Looked up for the fields trapped beneath the chandelier
    It's going down

    I thought it over, and drew the curtain
    Leave me to myself, lead me to myself
    I hummed the Dies Irae you played the Hallelujah
    Lead me to myself, don't leave me in myself

    If you'd been made to serve a master
    You be fighting by the open night, fighting by the hand
    Could I have been made to serve a master
    When I'm never gonna understand, never understand

    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Looked up full of fear trapped beneath the chandelier
    It's going down
    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Looked up full of fear trapped beneath the chandelier
    It's going down
    Hold me in your everlasting arms Writer/s: Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij
