Lyrics

Buried Alive

Got the weight of the world on your shoulders
Got your priorities all wrong
And the way that you smile, you’re all teeth and no grin
Just let your hair down, let your hair down, let your hair down 

You’re buried alive in all of it
Come up for air sometime soon or you might miss this

You think that life is measured in gold stars
Hell, you’ve got a galaxy in just one chapter of your story
But there’s more out there than conquering the madness
Just let your hair down, let your hair down, let your hair down 

You’re buried alive in all of it
Come up for air sometime soon or you might miss this




 

Delicate Love

Part of me keeps hesitating
Dismiss my own happiness, prepare for the apocalypse
It’s not like I can switch you off
You’re so hard to resist when I can still taste your lips 

You’re my imminent disaster
A ticking bomb in disguise
And I’m busy estimating
Our demise 

I don’t want you to go
Breathe this in – memorise the touch of your skin
But the sharks are circling… 

My heart is scared to love you
Reaching out but consumed by doubt
I have tried to switch it off
But it’s sunk in, can’t shed that skin 

Fighting off disaster
Kill the monsters in disguise
I’m hoping this delicate love will survive 

I don’t want you to go
Breathe this in – memorise the touch of your skin
This love is fragile, don’t be hasty now
This love is fragile, this love, this love
