Take my hand, take my pride, take my temperature
Your hands are always coldest in the summer
I will wait, I will wait in the darkness of your city
Feeling its heartbeat run through my veins

And you take it all in stride - the murmur of my heart

Take a chance, take a look, take your courage in hand
Your arrogance will make you run - take me with you
You can take comfort, take heed, take no for an answer
But the world will always need saving from heartbreak

And you never could say no the echo in our hearts
To the ancient fear of love, the ancient truth in solitude

If I am a hypochondriac for heartache
Perhaps my love’s not real, my anxiety a ghost
But baby, I see your face written on my palms
Smudged on the mirror, oh, oh

The city bleeds when you cut it
Your masks litter the pavement like lost pennies
You like the rooftops, it suits your lonely nature
To be higher than your shadow

But I will climb to get to the coldness of summer
Take my hand
