lyrics

Unknown Roads

No song I've sung has ever stayed the same
They all end whispering your name
Again

In these violet hours
when the sun goes down
It's getting harder now
To keep you off my mind
I put the bottle down
Get my feet on the ground
But it's hard to keep your heart
From hanging round

And I weep and I rail and I try to stay awake
But there's something that holds me here
And I know you and I, we're far apart
But it's never too far from my heart

I will know when these chains from me fall
So I can beat upon these walls
And I will hold to theses unknown roads
Till I have opened up my soul
I will know
There's a fire in me now that is never growing cold

So I spin this world around
And I break upon the waves
Of every stolen kiss
I should've saved
But I'll learn to let it fall
Get back to climbing up these walls
Cos' I've no one but the ghost of you to blame

I will know when these chains from me fall
So I can beat upon these walls
And I will hold to theses unknown roads
Till I have opened up my soul
I will know
There's a fire in me now that is never growing cold
