lyrics

Have you come here to save us from this imminent desire?
I'll take back what's mine and I'm heading on.
For I'm afraid that I'll miss you when I'm done.

Are you far away?
Are you good to stay?

This love is a haunting river,
Cuts to the bone like a howling winter.
Fear is the skin wearing thin,
Lately I'm giving in.

This is the home bound, the take down.
The hardest part is lying right here.
Oh darling, calm down, I surrender,
For this night is breaking us down.
Are you far away? Are you good to stay?
Are we gonna hold on till the lights all go down,
Till we're fast asleep.

This too shall pass, you used to say,
Don't let the sun go down on the good side of you.
Don't wanna spend my lifetime chasing after you.
So if you have to go, then know that I will miss you so.

This is the home bound, the take down.
The hardest part is lying right here.
Oh darling, calm down, I surrender,
For this night is breaking us down.
Are you far away? Are you good to stay?
Are we gonna hold on till the lights all go down,
Till we're fast asleep.
