lyrics

I find myself darling, all messed up
The phone’s gone silent, and they’ve hung up
My love is fading so far away
And they said that all I can do is pray

But I would burn down this city
To keep you from the cold
And I would chase back the shadows
That are slowly taking hold
I would run to the mountain
And scream into the storm
And push it back down forever
So hold on

The miles inch by on idle tides
Each second cuts like a thousand knives
I’m living lifetimes in every hour
And growing famished on my willpower

And I would burn down this city
To keep you from the cold
And I would chase back the shadows
That are slowly taking hold
I would run to the mountain
And scream into the storm
And push it back down forever
So hold on

So pray for me and I'll grow stronger by the mile
I'll run a thousand years and never tire
Just turn your face to the sky
Call out my name
And I will burn across the night like I'm on fire

Now through infirmary doors I’ve burst
Each face is haggard, each glance is cursed
And I see those monsters won’t set you free
Well wait til they get a load of me

Cos I would burn down this city
To keep you from the cold
And I would chase back the shadows
That are slowly taking hold
I would run to the mountain
And scream into the storm
And push it back down forever
So hold on
