Death

Album: To Lose My Life… (2008)
Charted: 52
  • I love the feeling when we lift off
    Watching the world so small below
    I love the dreaming when I think of
    The safety in the clouds out my window

    I wonder what keeps us so high up
    Could there be a love beneath these wings?
    If we suddenly fall should I scream out
    Or keep very quite and cling to my mouth?

    As I'm crying, so frightened of dying
    Relax, yes, I'm trying
    This fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me

    I love the quite of the night time
    When the sun is drowning in the deathly sea
    I can feel my heart beating as I speed from
    The sense of time catching up with me

    The sky set out like a pathway
    But who decides which route we take
    As people drift into a dream world
    I close my eyes as my hands shake

    And when I see a new day
    Who's driving this anyway
    I picture my own grave 'cause fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me

    Floating neither up or down
    I wonder when I'll hit the ground
    Well, the earth beneath my body shake
    And cast your sleeping hearts awake

    Could it tremble stars from moon light skies?
    Could it drag a tear from your cold eyes?
    I live on the right side, I sleep in the left
    That's why everything's gotta be love or death

    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me

    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me
    Yes, this fear's got a hold on me Writer/s: DENIS LEARY
