Embers

Fear can hold you back Can live your life can bring you down forever Here in early hours We’ll find a place we’ll wish away forever Cause she got love and I got hate And she got free and I got wait And I cannot believe it But tonight, we are the stars We are the stars tonight Fate is hard sometimes She looks away just when you really need her Cause she got love and I got hate And she got over my mistakes And I cannot believe it But tonight, we are the stars We are the stars tonight Tonight, we are the stars We are the stars tonight Tonight, we are the stars We are the stars tonight Tonight, we are the stars We are the stars tonight And one day far from now We’ll see it written in the skies If we don’t live forever it’s alright Cause we were stars tonight
2.
So close your eyes now It’s just a false alarm And I won’t let you Come to any harm You know that when it comes to you There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do And you can tell me anything Just never let me hear you talk too soon oh no Cause in my wildest dreams I never thought we’d come to this I know that in this world There’s things you shouldn’t do But I’d do anything for you So keep on moving And forget yesterday And in the darkness Lock your heart away away Cause in my wildest dreams I never thought we’d come to this I know that in this world There’s things you shouldn’t do But I’d do anything for you

Pretty in the dark Just like I remembered it So many times before Is that the way it was? Cause I can’t trust myself To be anything but blinded And I promise you I will never learn There’s no way to be Anything but who you are So take all your mistakes And wash them all away There’s precious little time To be hiding in the low light So I promise you I will never learn So when you call I’ll come running for you And when you fall I’ll be waiting right here There’s no other way except to watch it unfold But I promise you I will never learn Falling through the cloud With nothing left to show except The embers in my heart Same as it ever was And when all’s said and done There’s a way to get what I want But I promise you I will never learn So when you call I’ll come running for you And when you fall I’ll be waiting right here Waiting There’s no other way except to watch it unfold But I promise you I will never learn

Second guess my heart Nothing less than wrong Tell me did you know This was all along Cause you know you know you know Feels like I died and went to heaven Nothing stays the same Everything will change Cause you know you know you know Feels like I died and went to heaven Cause you know you know you know
5.
Running the red lights where you been Wearing our souls so very thin See you in another life Joining the dots fast as you can Don’t let you doubts stop all your plans Forget them all while you still can But we can’t stop it now No we can’t stop it now And I promise that we’ll make it Though it seems so very far And I promise I’ll be waiting Here until we head into the stars Funny how everything can change But if we ran the tape again It would all end the exact same way Maybe we’ll find out what it means Or maybe the spaces in between Are filled with something we can never see But we can’t stop it now No we can’t stop it now And I promise that we’ll make it Though it seems so very far And I promise I’ll be waiting Here until we head into the stars Time was we didn’t know Time was we didn’t know But I promise that we’ll make it Though it seems so very far And I promise I’ll be waiting Just promise me that you will keep your head until we make it to the stars

Every word that you say Will bring me back to this place This changing world that we can't stop We'll watch it turn no matter what I know it won't change us And in the calm before the storm Of broken hearts and shattered hope You gotta keep holding on Remember love will never fade Love is real It's not an illusion When you walk the high wire Baby don't look down Every step is the answer Cause in this changing world that we can't stop We'll watch it turn no matter what I know it won't change us And in the calm before the storm Of broken hearts and shattered hope You gotta keep holding on Remember love will never fade Love is real it's not an illusion Cause in this changing world that we can't stop We'll watch it turn no matter what I know it won't change us Cause when it comes We’ve got this love in our heart No matter what comes our way Love is real it's not an illusion It's not some faith So hard to see It’s not some faith hard to believe It’s not an illusion

Take me with you when you’re sure We’ll be lost forever Everything I’ll ever need Got you right here with me Stillness and light darkness so bright, but don’t you close your eyes There’s a truth inside of you And you can make it shine Living in realtime Climb your window in the night Whole world’s on the other side You know words don’t mean a thing Where I end and you begin Stillness and light darkness so bright, but don’t you close your eyes There’s a truth inside of you And you can make it shine Living in realtime

Open up the skylight baby let the truth come rushing in Don’t you let your heart go anywhere just think what might have been Now that all the waiting’s over don’t know what I wouldn’t give To hide amongst the bygone shadows where I end and you begin There’s never been a better time to be alive You know that when tomorrow comes we can throw it all away Until we cross the line when nothing’s ever gonna be the same Cause we can live a million years and the light will never fade And I won’t ever let you down, just call my name Cause we got colours, we got love And we got too much, of not enough We got washed up, on the shore We got everything, to answer for There’s never been a better time to be alive I think I see the sun rise, guessing all my wishes went astray Tell me what the truth is baby is it time to leave this place? Cause I will run forever with you I will run forever with you I will run forever with you I will run forever with you Does it make it better Does it make it worse Are we so lucky Are we so cursed With tomorrow coming Can our hearts survive Cause there’s never been a better time to be alive

It’s not my heart you break It’s every bone in my body You don’t just grab my soul No you swallow me whole We’ve got nothing to celebrate Except for us Just let me know that you’re ok With all my faults You let me know that there’s nothing wrong With who I am Cause that’s who you are My saviour It’s me you came to see When I didn’t know your name Never tried to pray But you came here anyway There’s nothing happening in this town Except for us Of course it had to break down now Cause that’s just my luck And you sewed my heart When it ripped in two Cause that’s who you are my saviour So don’t you come round here anymore With your hopes and dreams I should have known better all along Nothing’s what it seem But you can put me together now When I fall apart Cause that’s who you are My saviour

We sat there on the edge of troubles in your heart We watched them move in synchro We travelled very far we didn’t even know If we could ever make it home But in our hearts we believed We could wave this whole world free How I wish that we could be On the banks of Lake Geneva We don’t need anyone remember what you said We’re only living for the light Sometimes I still believe that you are here with me Your spirit in somebody’s eyes And every word you ever said Are super cut inside my head We don’t need anything at all You know I’ll catch you when you fall And what I’d give you to be Looking back on that endless sea How I wish that we could be On the banks of Lake Geneva We can make it We are there We are lost without a prayer We are perfect We are saved We are drifting on the waves We are courage We are love We are all alone We can make it We are there We are on the banks of Lake Geneva We can make it We are there We are on the banks of Lake Geneva
11.
Even when the time’s not right And even when your name’s in lights We’re shooting the breeze And showing no fear And hearts on our sleeves And being sincere And even when we crash and burn And even when we never learn It’s all LOL and ready to burst And doing so well And selling ciphers We know where you live, and we won’t tell a soul Just say what you want, we wanna know Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us? And even when we’re underground And evem when we’re safe and sound We’re hooking it up And locking it down And falling in love And see you around And even when we’re blacking out And even when we can’t slow down We’re painting the town With scarlet alerts And tears of a clown And selling ciphers We know where you live, but we won’t tell a soul Just say what you want, we wanna know Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us? We know where you live but we won’t tell a soul Just say what you want, we wanna know Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us? We know where you live but your secrets are safe Our policy is you won’t escape Where did you hear about us where did you hear about us?

I was lost Given up And there you were There you were I had stopped Looking for love And there you were There you were Now I’m standing falling off the edge Trying to hang on every word you said And I know you haven’t saved me yet But I’m hoping... Everything Was not enough And there you were There you were I had stopped Looking for love And there you were There you were And there’s no one gets me like you do Letting go is all we have to lose And somehow you let me know it’s true And I’m hoping I had stopped Looking for love And there you were There you were
