Well I hate the way that you look at me, Is this more than you can handle yet? (Is this more than you can handle yet?) Well I'm trying not to mess this up, It's like I'm catching shattered pieces of a broken night that seem to revolve around you. Maybe, let's fall apart, start a riot, place it in our hearts. Take a step back, watch the walls crash down around me. Don't let me start this war (woah oh war) Dont let me start this war (woah oh war) So come on! Let's jump this ship, It'll make us feel alive. Cuz I won't sit and wait, For the day you change your mind. I've got your sleeve still pinned to my heart, and I'm starting to see that it's a problem. (a problem) These days I wanna cut my tongue out of my mouth, cuz thoughts keep slipping out in the worst situations. Maybe, let's fall apart, start a riot, place it in our hearts. Take a step back, watch the walls crash down around me. Don't let me start this war Dont let me start this war (woah oh war oh war) So come on! Let's jump this ship, It'll make us feel alive. Cuz I won't sit and wait, For the day you change your mind. So come on! (come on) Take a chance, It'll make you feel alive It'll make you feel alive! Maybe, let's fall apart, start a riot, place it in our hearts. Take a step back, watch the walls crash down around me. Don't let me start this war (woah oh war) Dont let me start this war (woah oh war) So come on! (come on) Take a chance, It'll make you feel alive It'll make you feel alive!

Well I guess I'm not the only one who has issues with letting go Cause I'm desperately trying to hold on to what's left of my past My heart could run a marathon when I see your smile in old photographs The look on your face screams that you're sad but don't worry darling Those light eyes, They'll never burn out And it seems like my idea Of what feels like home is slipping away Out of my hands and I keep holding, I keep holding on to Well I could tell you weren't satisfied, cause I'm a fucking screw up So here's the mess of words I've piled into a song for you And could you tell that I'm trying? It's just my way with words is completely obsolete And I've been thinking about letting go And it seems like my idea Of what feels like home is slipping away Out of my hands and I keep holding, I keep holding on to

I don't see any other way for you to get out of this mess and this town is a loaded gun with its sights on you and you can't get out of here Take this anyway you want to but don't expect me to be there when you crash and burn I've got a closet full of demons and you're just another waiting to break free This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye it's the first time I get on with my life I don't see any other way for you to get out of this mess and this town is a loaded gun with its sights on you and you can't get out of here I knew who I was this morning but that's changed so many times since then These are the nights we will remember and I'll hold onto that till the day I die This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye it's the first time I get on with my life, fuck! I don't see any other way for you to get out of this mess and this town is a loaded gun with its sights on you and you can't get out of here I don't see any other way for you to get out of this mess and this town is a loaded gun with its sights on you and you can't get out of here This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye it's the first time I get on with my This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye it's the first time I get on with my This is the last time I kiss this city goodbye it's the first time I get on with my life

Our Calling 04:00
I have fond memories of climbing schools at night to get high back when we were kids at the start ok maybe not quite but we were kids at heart and we always knew there would be a place where we could make this feeling last and last not stuck in your 9 to 5 routine another cog in the machine yeah we always knew This is our calling in life this is what we dreamt about at night when we were just kids with stars in our eyes. Now we're all grown up we get by but it's not enough and we never lost our stars It's be come clear the difference between there and here we're not wasting anymore time on girls that never loved us, or a family that'll never trust us, time to leave it all behind This is our calling in life this is what we dreamt about at night when we were just kids with stars in our eyes. Now we're all grown up we get by but it's not enough and we never lost our stars We all feel a little fucked up sometimes we just need a reason to feel alright We all feel a little fucked up sometimes we just need a reason to feel alright maybe you could be mine This is our calling in life this is what we dreamt about at night when we were just kids with stars in our eyes. Now we're all grown up we get by but it's not enough and we never lost our stars (Now we're all grown up we get by but it's not enough and we never lost our stars)
