Halfway around the world
Lies the one thing that you want
Buried in the ground, hundreds of miles down
First thing that arises in your mind while you awake
Bending you til you break
Let me hold you now

Baby close your eyes
Don’t open til the morning light
Baby don’t forget
You haven’t lost it all yet

Don’t know what your made of
Til the one thing that you want
To come in with the dawn and suddenly changes
Monday, syndicate me, its everyone the same
But all we’ve lost to the flame
Listen to me now

Baby close your eyes
Don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget
We haven’t lost it all yet
All we know for sure
Is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget
We haven’t lost it all yet

Someday when this is over
We mix it up, no answer
For now its when I hold her
We are closer, we are closer
We are closer, we are closer

Baby close your eyes
Don’t open til the morning light
Don’t ever forget
We haven’t lost it all yet
And all we know for sure
Is all that we are fighting for
Baby don’t forget
We haven’t lost it all yet

We are closer
we are closer
(We haven’t lost it all yet)
Now we are closer
(We haven’t lost it all yet)
We are closer.

Uncertainty is killing me
And I’m certainly not asleep
Maybe I’ve gone far too deep
Maybe I’m just far too weak
And that’s the last place I want to be the last place

And there is so much we dont know
So we love and we hope that it holds

Thousands were lost and maybe more
The question remains, “What is this for?”
Maybe it came unexpected
Maybe I’m left unprotected
And that’s the last place I want to be the last place

And there is so much we dont know
So we love and we hope that it holds
And either we say or we show
So I’m going to fight for my own

I’m holding on until the last
I’m holding on until there’s nothing left
I’m holding on until the last
I’m holding on until there’s nothing left.

Made it fourteen city blocks without breathing
Light breaks from the left and hits between the buildings
Stoplights change their name from green to red to green again
Love has its critics but they never keep many friends

It’s alright, this could be a rough night
So hold tight, this is not a fair fight

She up and died and left you in a fall you can not forget
You were too young, you said “Not yet, not yet, not yet.”
That year the cherries choked from pretty pink to red to brown
You looked around but she was nowhere to be found

It’s alright, this could be a rough night
So hold tight, this is not a fair fight

It’s alright, this will be a rough night
So hold tight, this is not a fair fight.

Happiness is just outside my window
Would it crash blowing 80-miles an hour?
Or is happiness a little more like knocking
On your door, and you just let it in?

Happiness feels a lot like sorrow
Let it be, you can’t make it come or go
But you are gone- not for good but for now
Gone for now feels a lot like gone for good

Happiness is a firecracker sitting on my headboard
Happiness was never mine to hold
Careful child, light the fuse and get away
‘Cause happiness throws a shower of sparks

Happiness damn near destroys you
Breaks your faith to pieces on the floor
So you tell yourself, that’s enough for now
Happiness has a violent roar

Happiness is like the old man told me
Look for it, but you’ll never find it all
Let it go, live your life and leave it
Then one day, wake up and she’ll be home
Home, home, home.

I don’t know you but I know what you did to her
She told me and I happen to believe her too

They will be 3 steps behind
You will not know what’s got you
Oh so you’re sorry now
All is not well, it’s not ended

Hold your breath til its over
There’s something left underwater

You’ve been quiet, there are things that you do not speak of
But if you stay gone a little longer your keys won’t work

Cause I will be 2 steps behind
You will not know what’s got you
Oh so you’re sorry now
All is not well, it’s not ended

Hold your breath til its over
There’s something left underwater.

Don’t talk, don’t say a thing
Cause your eyes they tell me more than your words
Don’t go, don’t leave me now
Cause they say the best way out is through

And I am short on words knowing what’s occurred
She begins to leave because of me

Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour

I know you’re leaving now
Cause I held on to my way tightly
Stay still until you know
Tomorrow finds the best way out is through

And I am short on words knowing what’s occurred
She begins to leave because of me

Her bag is now much heavier
I wish that I could carry her
But this is our ungodly hour.

The daughter’s father watches, quietly we assume
He’s not longer with us but he left this dusty room
In your name and it’s an honor, it’s a shame but it’s your honor
Take it on your shoulder til you can find another

That’s enough for now, he should’ve never left you broken
He should’ve held you, things your father never could do
That’s enough for now, he would’ve never left you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you

The century before you never could turn 21
Years and years he waited just watching for a son
For someone to go ahead, take the name he said
Years and years he waited and a daughter came instead

But that’s enough for now, he should’ve never left you broken
He should’ve held you, things your father never could do
That’s enough for now, he would’ve never left you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you

Breathing comes in pairs
Except for twice
One begins and one’s goodbye

Sixty years of sorrow he got 5 or 6 of bliss
Left my mother’s mother without so much as a kiss

But that’s enough for now, he never wanted to leave you broken
He would’ve held you, things your father never told you
That’s enough for now, I would’ve never left you broken
I would’ve held you, things your father never could do
Words your father never told you

Sixty years of sorrow, he got 5 or 6 of bliss
Left my mother’s mother without so much as a kiss.

Trying not to lose my head but I have never been this scared before
Tell you what I’ll do instead, lay my body down on the floor
To forget what I’ve done, silhouette til the good lord come
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
Trying not to lose your own, boxing up everything, you’ve got
All you ever knew of home, you’re scared scared to see
Your mother there in the door, you wonder where did the years go
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is how the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
The violins make no sound
And I begin to feel the ground
All we know is distance
We’re close and then we run
Kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one
But this is where the story ends
Or have we just begun
To kiss away the difference
I know you hate this one.

Some things we don’t talk about
better do without
just hold a smile
we’re falling in and out of love
the same damn problem

together all the while
you can never say never
when we don’t know why
time and time again
younger now then we were before
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go

picture you’re the queen of everything
as far as the i can see
under your command
i will be your gaurdening
when all is crumbling
steady your hand

you can never say never
when we don’t know why
time and time again
younger now then we were before
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go,
don’t let me go

we’re falling apart
and coming together again and again
we’re coming apart
but we hold it together
hold it together, together again

Don’t let me go (x7).

I see you there, don’t know where you come from
Unaware but you’re still from someone
Don’t Appear to care that I saw you, and I want you
What’s your name? Cause I have to know it
You let me in and begin to show it
I’m terrified cause you’re headed straight for it, might Get it

Hear the song playin on background
All alone but you’re turnin up now
And everyone is risin to meet ya, to greet you
Turn around and you’re walkin toward me
I’m breakin down and you’re breathin slowly
Say the word and I will be your man, your man, say when

(Chorus)
And my own two hands will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when
And my own two arms will carry you tonight, tonight

Come close and then even closer
We bring it in but we go no further
We’re seperate two ghosts in one mirror, no mearer
Later on if it turns to chaos, hurricane comin all around us
See the crack, pull it back from the window, you stay low, say when

(Chorus)
And my own two hands will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when
And my own two arms will carry you tonight, tonight

Come across you’re lost and broken
You’re coming to, but you’re slow and waking
You Start to shake, you still haven’t spoken, what happened
They’re comin back and you just don’t know it
and you wanna cry but there’s nothin comin
They’re gonna push until you give in, say when
Now we’re here and it turns to chaos, hurricane comin all around us
They’re gonna crack, don’t you back from the window, you stay slow
It all began with the man and country
Every plan turns another century around again
And another nation fallen

Maybe god can be on both sides of the gun
never gone, understood why some of us never get it so good, so good
Some are less fortunate than us
All the less we’ll go after us
Never stops until we give in, give in, say when

(Chorus)
And my own two hands will comfort you tonight, tonight
Say when
And my own two arms will carry you tonight, tonight
say when

Outro
And my own two hands will comfort you tonight, tonight..
