  • Throw your heart to me
    Let it fall and hit the ground
    Let it go
    Your timing was so wrong
    And I just want to be found

    And oh
    And I

    Yeah, I've got the lines, I've got the lines

    Oh it's brighter this time
    This type of mine this disguise
    Oh you talk, oh, to me

    Well, nothing's gonna hurt me with my eyes shut
    I can see through them
    I can see through them
    I am drawing pictures I'm evading
    I will not use them
    I will not use them
    Again

    And it starts again
    You come over with your friends
    I don't wanna talk to them
    And all I really want
    Is to start again

    And oh
    And I

    Yeah, I've got the lines I've got the lines

    Oh it's brighter this time
    This type of mine
    This disguise
    Oh you talk, ooh, to me

    Well, nothing's gonna hurt me with my eyes shut
    I can see through them
    I can see through them
    I am drawing pictures I'm evading
    I will not use them
    I will not use them

    'Cause I wanna be bigger than life
    For you
    For you

    'Cause I wanna be bigger than life
    For you
    For you

    And nothing's gonna hurt me with my eyes shut
    I can see through them
    I can see through them
    And I am drawing pictures I'm evading
    I will not use them
    I will not use them

    No, nothing's gonna hurt me with my eyes shut
    I can see through them
    I can see through them Writer/s: MICHAEL THOMAS GOLDSWORTHY, OLIVER ALEXANDER THORNTON, RESUL EMRE TURKMEN
