Where would you go Please stay, I Where would you go when I Saw what was under your skin Tied to our bones We sit ideally by Watching the world grow old Under the moonlight Ooh, ooh Cold waters flow Through my veins Caught in your tides and you're Recklessly pulling me Into waters Deep as notions Silver shine Reflects on oceans Into waters Deep as notions Silver shine Reflects on oceans Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh...

He's no friend of Jesus But he's a friend of mine And I hope that he's doing well Sunrise high and sunset low Gonna steal those shadows as he goes And I hope that he's doing well He's no friend of Jesus But he's a friend of mine He's no friend of Jesus But he's a friend of mine He's no distant stranger He's just looking for a home And I hope that he finds his way Some walk high and some walk low I guess no one ever told you so And I hope he finds his way He's no friend of Jesus But he's a friend of mine He's no friend of Jesus But he's a friend of mine

Peace on the line Is everything fine? Is everything settled now? These old ways are pushing down These souls again These old ways are pushing down These souls again Beasts come alive Is everything right? Is everything settled now? Peace on the line Is everything fine? Is everything settled now? These cold winds are blowing down These walls again Cold, cold winds are blowing down These walls again These old ways are pushing down These souls again These old ways are pushing down These souls again Beasts come alive Is everything right? Is everything settled now? Peace on the line Is everything fine? Is everything settled now?

I was born in the country With my eyes wide open Raised in the city With my eyes sewn shut I was born in a world Of the lost and the broken Born in a world That has seen so much You don't to have to understand me Or these words I try to say Just keep those big eyes open For the joys along the way We were born in the country With our eyes wide open Raised in the city With our eyes sewn shut And we'll die in a world Of the lost and the broken Die in a world That has seen so much You don't to have to understand me Or these words I try to say Just keep those big eyes open For the joys along the way I was born in the country With my eyes wide open Raised in the city With my eyes sewn shut With my eyes sewn shut With my eyes sewn shut

Silent breathing Take me off the chains, but Knowing why I Feel me wandering, but Please don't take me home Please don't take me home Moment silent Breathe in the way you taste, but I don't listen You are the calm in us, but Please don't take me home Please don't take me home I lay breathing I failed to call you up, but Knowing silence Steals the sound, just don't Please don't take me home Please don't take me home Please don't take me home Please don't take me home

Warm eyes and a cold heart Take my hand and follow me Wilting smiles and dreams forgot Take my hand and follow me Down Oh, oh Down Oh, oh Wasteful journeys and summers lost Take my hand and follow me Eyes roll back and start to rot Take my hand and follow me Down Oh, oh Down Oh, oh There's only heads on the toss Take my hand and follow me There's no point we've already lost Take my hand and follow me Down Oh, oh Down Oh, oh
