I Want Out

Album: Ones and Zeros (2014)
  • All we are is leaves in the wind
    And all of our moments pass us by before they begin

    And I know I can't deny
    The burning in your eyes
    I need a little more now
    Wage against the dying light
    It's burning me tonight 'cause I need it

    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)
    I will light up the sky as we burn it down (oh oh oh oh)
    I know you can't doubt it, but let me say
    'Cause I know it's better this way
    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)

    All we are is breath against the glass
    Just like the ashes of a fire fading fast

    Yeah, I know I can't deny
    The burning in your eyes
    I need a little more now
    Will you dance the time left
    Is burning me tonight 'cause I need it

    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)
    I will light up the sky as we burn it down (oh oh oh oh)
    I know you can't doubt it, but let me say
    'Cause I know it's better this way
    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)

    If this is love, baby, I want out
    I will light up the sky as we burn it down

    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)
    I will light up the sky as we burn it down (oh oh oh oh)
    I know you can't doubt it, but let me say
    'Cause I know it's better this way
    'Cause if this is love, baby, I want out (oh oh oh oh)
    I want out (oh oh oh oh)
    I want out (oh oh oh oh) Writer/s: JOHN ALICASTRO, MICHAEL LAURI, JOHN TAYLOR, GUSTAV TOMAS WOOD, FRASER MACLEOD TAYLOR, SIMON MITCHELL, BENJAMIN LLOYD JOLLIFFE
