I’m lying in the gutter looking up at the stars
I can’t keep running it’s catching up on me now
It makes me wonder if imma ever get out
Yeah I’m so gone that there’s no saving me now

And I feel such a fool, depending on you
And I wanna scream ‘somebody let me out’

It’s like I’m dying in a dream, and I’m tryna wake up
Crawling on my knees and I cannot get up
Wish I woulda known when enough was enough
Need something for the pain but the killer is us
And it keeps on pulling me when I wanna get up
Ya keep on kicking me while you’re holding me down
Yeah your love is a drug (yeah x2)
Your love is a drug (yeah x2)

I’m lying in your bed looking up at the stars
Ya got no mercy and yeah you’re holding my heart
I try to erase you but you make it so hard
Yeah I would try anything just to tear us apart

And I feel such a fool, depending on you
And I wanna scream ‘somebody let me out’

It’s like I’m dying in a dream, and I’m tryna wake up
Crawling on my knees and I cannot get up
Wish I woulda known when enough was enough
Need something for the pain but the killer is us
And it keeps on pulling me when I wanna get up
Ya keep on kicking me while you’re holding me down
Yeah your love is a drug (yeah x2)
Your love is a drug (yeah x4)

Your love
Your love can’t beat the feeling, your love I really need it
Your love
Your love, your love, your love, your love

It’s like I’m dying in a dream, and I’m tryna wake up
Crawling on my knees and I cannot get up
Wish I woulda known when enough was enough
Need something for the pain but the killer is us
And it keeps on pulling me when I wanna get up
Ya keep on kicking me while you’re holding me down
Yeah your love is a drug (yeah x2)
Your love is a drug (yeah x2)
Yeah your love is a drug (yeah x2)
Your love is a drug (yeah x4)

I wish that life came with instructions:
“Please read before assembly”
Maybe if the lord gave out inductions
We would live our lives so perfectly

Since you’ve been gone no nothing feels the same,
I feel like I’m lost and I need…

To wash the pain away
Help me breathe again
Save me from the darkness and illuminate my path
Pull me from the water, lead me through the maze
Take this broken heart and show it how to love again
Wash the pain away

Ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh

There are so many empty vessels
It makes it hard to brave the sea
How the hell am I supposed to replace you?
Oh I tried, I really tried, I really tried

Since you’ve been gone no nothing feels the same,
I feel like I’m lost and I need…

To wash the pain away
Help me breathe again
Save me from the darkness and illuminate my path
Pull me from the water, lead me through the maze
Take this broken heart and show it how to love again
Wash the pain away

Ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh
Wash the pain away…
Ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh ahhhh

Chorus

Someone help me out
Cause I need it now
Yeahhhhh
Pull me from the water
Lead me through the maze
Take this broken heart
Yeahhhhh

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone? (x2)

I’m awake again,
Looking over photos that I know I shoulda thrown away
You’re in my head,
And I’m thinking of you every single second of the night and day

Whatever happened to the good times?
Did ya bury them, or wishing they would go away?
I wonder what could make you satisfied?
Cause you and I, I thought that we were here to stay

You kept on walking, when I tried to tell ya things would change
Now you’re beggin’ for my love,
But I don’t want the pain

Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly
And baby it can fly away
I’m gonna take it to the other side
Cause you and I
I thought that we were here to stay
And everything you do
And everything you do
Is what makes me keep coming
Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly

I’m breaking down,
Searching for a lover just to come and turn my life around
I feel the clouds,
Falling on my shoulders and I know the rain is coming now

Whatever happened to the good times?
Did ya bury them, or wishing they would go away?
I wonder what could make you satisfied?
Cause you and I, I thought that we were here to stay

You kept on walking when I tried to tell ya things will change
Now you’re beggin’ for my love,
But I don’t want the pain

Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly
And baby it can fly away
I’m gonna take it to the other side
Cause you and I
I thought that we were here to stay
And everything you do
And everything you do
Is what makes me keep coming
Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone? (x2)

And everything ya do
And everything ya do
Is what makes me keep coming
Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly

Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly
And baby it can fly away
I’m gonna take it to the other side
Cause you and I
I thought that we were here to stay
And everything you do
And everything you do
Is what makes me keep coming
Love isn’t just another lullaby
It’s a Butterfly

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone? (x2)

Sitting here looking like a fool again
Egg all over my face
I try so hard but I can’t pretend
Seems like every word ya say

Is just to keep me hanging on for no good reason
I don’t need this, no I don’t need this
Why do ya keep me choking on your empty promises
I mean it, this time I mean it

Oh I’m gonna cut you out
I’m all out of patience, so sick of chasing
You act like my love ain’t good enough
I’m gonna cut you out
I can’t keep making the same old mistake in
Letting you in all I know is how you bring me down

Maybe this is how we’re supposed to end
This time we lay it to rest
And I hope that I am preaching to the choir when I say
It’s going nowhere, it’s going nowhere

Oh yeah you just keep me hanging on for no good reason
I don’t need this, no I don’t need it
Why do ya keep me choking on your empty promises
I mean it, this time I mean it

Oh I’m gonna cut you out
I’m all out of patience, so sick of chasing
You act like my love ain’t good enough
I’m gonna cut you out
I can’t keep making the same old mistake in
Letting you in all I know is how you let me down

Down… down… down…down…

I’m gonna cut you out
I’m all out of patience, so sick of chasing
You act like my love ain’t good enough
I’m gonna cut you out
I can’t keep making the same old mistake in
Letting you in all I know is how you let me down
Down… down… down…down…

I need to cut you out
Cause you bring me down

‘Fol lol the doh fol the day’

Close your eyes and try to picture me
Alone at night building back the years
I Pretty much forgot ya,
And the way our love it used to feel
So when you hit rock bottom,
I don’t wanna hear it’s me you need

It’s taken some time to find me
Still you have the nerve to try me
Is this what I deserve?
A lesson to learn for trying
(To forget about you, I’m better without you so now)
My sanctuary’s where I’ll be
Sanctuary

Restless days, memories on repeat
How can I allow the same mistakes to keep
Creepin up behind me to forever remind me
So when you hit rock bottom,
I don’t wanna hear it’s me you need

It’s taken some time to find me
Still you have the nerve to try me
Is this what I deserve?
A lesson to learn for trying
(To forget about you, I’m better without you so now)
My sanctuary’s where I’ll be
Sanctuary

No windows no doors, no in and out from here on
No feelings under the floor
I build my castle up strong, nothing can ever go wrong
The only way to be sure

‘Fol lol the doh fol the day’

It’s taken some time to find me
Still you have the nerve to try me
Is this what I deserve?
A lesson to learn for trying
(To forget about you, I’m better without you so now)
My sanctuary’s where I’ll be
Sanctuary

‘Fol lol the doh fol the day’

Been a victim and a fool before
But it was like a fairytale next to you
And the words are on your lips
‘Let’s go back, to mine…’

And ya don’t think twice
No ya don’t think twice

I don’t wanna go back to yours
Be just another movie star
‘Cause I know if I go back to yours
Shame and loathing hit me hard
But I don’t wanna be alone, no
So you gotta take me home…

And I said I had enough before
But my head has lost again to my heart
So I down another drink and say
‘Let’s go back, to yours…’

And I don’t think twice
No I don’t think twice

Now I wanna go back to yours
Be just another movie star
‘Cause I know if I go back to yours
Shame and loathing hit me hard
But I don’t wanna be alone, no
So ya gotta take me home…

When the morning comes
I’m just another movie star
Once again I’ve fallen in love
But you’ve had enough
I don’t wanna be alone, no
So I just get up and go…

Look at the mess that we made
Who’s gonna come and clean it up?
Love is a game that we play
The winners are wrong and they lose it all
I’m only seconds away from throwing it down and giving it up
I’m only seconds away from throwing it down and giving it up
Figure it out in my brain, am I insane or falling in love?
Figure it out in my brain, am I insane or falling in love?

Sirens calling, ringing out in my head
And I’m falling, falling, falling in love again
And I’m tired of trying and sick of the pain
Sick of the lies and I’m sick of the games
And I hear the sirens calling

Look at the mess that we made
Nobody came to clean it up
Nothing about has changed
All of the love, and all of the luck
Even that look on your face, you’re fading away and giving it up
Even that look on your face, you’re fading away and giving it up

Sirens calling, ringing out in my head
And I’m falling, falling, falling in love again
And I’m tired of trying and sick of the pain
Sick of the lies and I’m sick of the games
And I hear the sirens calling

Even that look on your face, you’re fading away and giving it up
Even that look on your face, you’re fading away and giving it up
Even that look on your face, you’re fading away and giving it up

Sirens calling, ringing out in my head
And I’m falling, falling, falling in love again
And I’m tired of trying and sick of the pain
Sick of the lies and I’m sick of the games
And I hear the sirens calling

I took your hand, you took my time
Left a mess up in my mind
Now I’m lost, I’m far behind
The day I met you

How does it feel?
Knowing that you’re always on my mind
Love you’re the one I can’t define
But you don’t even know
Waking up cold again
Looking over everything
Ya said love was a simple thing
Ya said love was a simple thing

Everything is broken now
Ya lost hope and you’re choking out
Some words they are better in
But some words they are better down

These days are becoming nights
This love is becoming life
These words are becoming lies
I tried I tried I tried

Look at these mornings, look at these days
Look at that moonlight on your face
Look at these eyes and tell me you don’t want my heart don’t feel the same

How does it feel?
Knowing that you’re always on my mind
Love you’re the one I can’t define
But you don’t even know
Waking up cold again
Looking over everything
Ya said love was a simple thing
Ya said love was a simple thing

I guess it was meant to be
Everything is history
No sense of bad or good
Cause love just isn’t free
And that was the price I paid
For words that I meant to say
I think of the things I lost
And I know it’s just too late

Look at these mornings, look at these days
Look at that moonlight on your face
Look at these eyes and tell me you don’t want my heart don’t feel the same

How does it feel?
Knowing that you’re always on my mind
Love you’re the one I can’t define
But you don’t even know
Waking up cold again
Looking over everything
Ya said love was a simple thing
Ya said love was a simple thing

I remember crashing down
Losing touch with all I’d found
Seeking solace in your open arms
Searching for sobriety
Making friends with enemies
Foolish me

Lights were blinding, everything around me
I couldn’t but I see ya now
And for that I’m sorry

‘Cause it was always you
You, you, only you only you
Only you, you, you
Only you, only you

All this time we wasted I, wish that we could just rewind
Believe me I would if it was possible
Longing for sincerity when all along in front of me
It was only you, only you

Lights were blinding everything around me
I couldn’t but I see ya now
And for that I’m sorry

‘Cause it was always you
You, you, only you only you
Only you, you, you
Only you, only you

How many times in life could I keep on falling over?
So many times before I learnt
Ohhhh I’m gonna tell you for the rest of your life

That it was always you, you, you, only you, only you only…

You, you, you, only you only you
It was only you, you, you,
Only you only you,
It was only you

Don’t let me down easily
Put me out of my misery
Until you say it to me, I can’t leave
Don’t let me down easily

It’s not fair
You and your honesty
If you cared
You could just lie to me

So love me, or leave me alone
Stop me or watch me go
So careless when we’re drunk
So quick to sober up
I’ve had enough of this reckless love
So, stop me or watch me go
Love me, or leave me alone

Don’t let me down easily
See, I’m a whole lot stronger than you’d think I’d be
Don’t worry ’bout the hurt you’re causing me
Don’t you worry ’bout the fact it’s killin’ me
Don’t let me down easily

So love me, or leave me alone
Stop me or watch me go
So careless when we’re drunk
So quick to sober up
I’ve had enough of this reckless love
So, stop me or watch me go
Love me, or leave me…

Alone! Alone! Alone! Alone!

So, stop me or watch me go
Love me, or leave me alone

I know that you can hear me
But the words fall in the dark
I see that you are burning
It’s emblazoned in your heart
You’re giving off a light, illuminate the night
I never seen it before
I thought we had it all, but I can tell you needed more

Oh it’s wasn’t easy love, but I’ve read between the lines
I know there is no other way, for me to change your mind

As long as ya need me, as long as ya want me
I’ll be the heart beating in your chest
You got a secret; you’re trying to keep it
I ain’t the one playing second best
So I sacrificed our broken love
‘Cause I’m not the one you’re thinking of

This ship is slowly drifting
Now I guess we’ll never know why
I feel your body calling,
For a different kinda love
You’re giving off a heat, it feels so cold to me
I’ve never felt it before
I know that you can hear me, but you’re trying to ignore

Oh it wasn’t easy but, I read between the lines
I know there is no other way, for me to change your mind

As long as ya need me, as long as ya want me
I’ll be the heart beating in your chest
You got a secret; you’re trying to keep it
I ain’t the one playing second best
So I sacrificed our broken love
‘Cause I’m not the one you’re thinking of

So darling
I’m letting you leave to be loved by somebody else
Darling, I’m laying my heart on the line

As long as ya need me, as long as ya want me
I’ll be the heart beating in your chest
You got a secret; you’re trying to keep it
I ain’t the one playing second best
So I sacrificed our broken love
I’m not the one you’re thinking of

Round and around and around we go
Butterflies making themselves a home
Nice to meet ya
Bones start shaking nervously
Sweat beads falling getting hard to see
Let me paint the picture

Got a pain in my chest, and it’s hard for me to breathe
I just don’t know what’s wrong with me
Thought I was strong but I feel so weak
When everyone else, knows it but me

I guess that’s what they call, they call the fall (Ohhhhh)
Knocks you off your feet and makes you lose control
(It’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright, it’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright)
Yeah that’s called the fall, nothing else can make you feel so vulnerable
(Don’t ya know, yeah ya know that it feels right, ’cause ya know when ya know what it feels like)

I’ve never felt like this before
Running so fast with my eyes so open
Dilated

And when I lay in my bed, and I can’t get any sleep
I need you with me constantly
Thought I was strong but I feel so weak
When everyone else, knows it but me

I guess that’s what they call, they call the fall (Ohhhhh)
Knocks you off your feet and makes you lose control
(It’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright, it’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright)
Yeah that’s called the fall, nothing else can make you feel so vulnerable
(Don’t ya know, yeah ya know that it feels right, ’cause ya know when ya know what it feels like)

Said I used to be afraid of love
But I guess I never knew what it was
Used to keep my doors closed
But know I’ve opened up
Heaven knows where I would’ve been
If I didn’t jump straight in…

I guess that’s what they call, they call the fall (Ohhhhh)
Knocks you off your feet and makes you lose control
(It’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright, it’s ok, it’s ok you’ll be alright)
Yeah that’s called the fall, nothing else can make you feel so vulnerable
(Don’t ya know, yeah ya know that it feels right, ’cause ya know when ya know what it feels like)

Spent my days in a wreck
Tryna find a way to you
Wondering where you’re at
Would ya mind if I came through?
It would be such a waste
If ya never know the truth

So I call just to say
You’re too good to be true
Hoping you don’t pick up
Cuz I didn’t get it through
Spent my days in a wreck
Tryna find my way to you

Tryna find a way to You
I will find my way to You

I would search far and wide
There’s nowhere I wouldn’t go
I would stay by your side
Darlin’ if ya tell me so
Maybe you’d run and hide
Then again ya never know

So I find my way to you
I will find my way to you
I will find my way to you
I will find my way yeah
I will find my way yeah

I will find my way to You
I will find my way to You

Spent my days in a wreck
Wondering where you’re at
It would be such a waste
So I call just to say

So I find my way to you
I will find my way to you
I will find my way to you
I will find my way yeah
I will find my way yeah

I will find my way to you
I will find my way to you

I will find my way to you

Wicked lies and heartless goal
Empty promises fill your soul
We don’t know what will follow, until we’re home
We get lost in the shallow, endless road

In you I’m found
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
Into the flames with a cavalier heart
Out in the deep, yeah you are my river
Breaking the chains to open the cage,
I need some danger, danger

Violet sky and a drifting sun
Into my arms we are one
We don’t live for tomorrow, until it comes
Let’s get lost in the shadows, we’ve become

In you I’m found
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
Into the flames with a cavalier heart
Out in the deep, yeah you are my river
Breaking the chains to open the cage,
I need some danger, danger

I don’t feel when I’m dark
We all need to light it up
Start a fire and watch it burn
Sacrifice everything we’ve learned

In you I’m found
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
I’m in love, I’m in love, a tempest love
Into the flames with a cavalier heart
Out in the deep, yeah you are my river
Breaking the chains to open the cage,
I need some danger, danger

Meet me in the wasteland, bullet in your chest
This could be our Graceland, sun setting down in the west
Better sweet than tasteless, bitter on my tongue
Bodies that are faceless, I know we could be the one

There’s a fire
Burning me up, fever won’t stop
This is my love
There’s a fire
Bubbling hot, molten like rock
This is my love, this is my love

Fighting on the frontline, now you’re in my sights
Caught up in the crossfire, we illuminate the night
Meet me in the wasteland, bullet in your chest
This could be our Graceland, where we’re laid to rest

There’s a fire
Burning me up, fever won’t stop
This is my love
There’s a fire
Bubbling hot, molten like rock
This is my love, this is my love
