LyricsEdit

You wake up, I know it's time to go.
With a spinning head, I lie and watch you smoke.
Chase the hands on my watch and hold you close,
This misery is weightless as a stone.

Have you lost the same things I have lost?
Do you know that panic I know?
Would I see the terror in your face?
Do you know that fever I know?

I wish time was still.
We'd stay right here,
With time to kill,
In our hearts without chains.

And if time was still,
We'd have no fear,
Or scars to heal,
In our hearts without chains,
In our hearts without chains.

You left everything behind except yourself,
But all I see is question marks and nothing else.
You must have landed in New York by now.
Please don't bring this love down.

And haveyou lost the same things I have lost?
Do you know that panic I know?
And would I see the terror in your face?
Do you know that fever I know?

I wish time was still.
We'd stay right here,
With time to kill,
In our hearts without chains.

And if time was still,
We'd have no fear,
Or scars to heal,
In our hearts without chains,
In our hearts without chains.

Don't bring this love down.
Don't bring this love down.
Don't bring this love down.
Don't bring this love down.

I wish time was still.
We'd stay right here,
With time to kill,
In our hearts without chains.

And if time was still,
We'd have no fear,
Or scars to heal,
In our hearts without chains,
In our hearts without chains,
In our hearts without chains
