lyrics

Bright grey sunrise, nearly white
Steal my breath and weigh me light
Questions of the time it takes to fall in love
I mean, I mean, the time it takes to lose it all

And they say,
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
You keep on stomping through the ground
And, honey, honey, honey, honey, honey
I see you, you are on your way down

But, lose my head, your hands and mouth
Spit slick lips, a moving sound
Light is a force until it's gone
Darkness in my heart, so strong

And they say,
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I am just trying to help
And, honey, honey, honey, shhhh
You know you can't do this by yourself

Lose me
No, don't lose me now
Wobble feet, make mistakes
But, don't let me down
And this peaceful pulling to the ground
Is a way, but couldn't we fly?
Don't our feathers splay?

Blood read sunset, clouds so ripe
And all the power of an empty sky
Come on cut the string, you're a straining kite
Oh, and crashing, darling, is just part of the flight

So you can lose me
Oh, but, don't lose me now
Skip a beat, make mistakes
But don't let me drown
And this peaceful, dark pulling to the ground
Is a way, but we could fly
My wings are raised

Oh, and how long does it take to fall in love?
Just the time it takes to lose it all
