lyrics

So in the back of my head it was something she said but I drank it out
And it the back of my mind there was something to find but I don’t know how
In the pit of my gut, something was stuck but I held it down
Well I’ve been working away, I’ve been waiting for days but you won’t come round

And when the room goes dark, I’ll keep trying but I won’t get far
And when the skies collapse, I’ll stand around and try to seem relaxed

I could have sworn to the stars I was handed the cards but I threw them back
And from the side of my eye it was hard to describe until it all went black
I could be buried alive I see the look in their eyes they made it clear enough
And I could carry the flame but I’m afraid of the blame when everything burns up

And when the room goes dark, I’ll keep trying but I won’t get far
And when the skies collapse, I’ll stand around and try to seem relaxed

Well you can take or leave it
Yeah you can take or leave it, but I’m not worried about the starting line

And when the room goes dark, I’ll keep trying but I won’t get far
And when the skies collapse, I’ll stand around and try to seem relaxed
And when the scene gets old I’ll give thanks I had an arm to hold
It took a while to find but the good things came when they were just in time

Well you can take or leave it
Yeah you can take or leave it, but I’m not worried about the starting line
No I’m not worried about the starting line
