lyrics

This is how it goes: I take off my stolen clothes
My heart is buried in the icy ground
The winter wind is howling, but the beats still make a sound
And I mourn for the blood inside that froze

The city is restless and so are we
We chase our shadows through the empty midnight streets
I’m a nomad in my head; I get lost for a week
And I come back half dead

And you - you’re the one thing I never could erase
Let’s wash the tear stains from our pillow case
You know what I’m asking: screw your courage to the sticking place
And stay, and stay

Tell me where you stand and I will mark it on the map
I borrow all the peace of mind I never could kidnap
If you talk me down from heights, then I will never learn to fly
And if it kills me, I will try

And you - you’re the one thing I never could misplace
Let’s wash the tear stains from our pillow case
You know what I’m asking: screw your courage to the sticking place
And stay, and stay

Where there’s smoke, there’s a fire
Where there’s pain, there’s desire
And the blizzard in me rages ever higher
But now it’s time to set the snow on fire
But now it’s time to set the snow on fire
