lyrics

We'll never know the night

Through all our summers gone
I held on
This light fed away
I waited
I stayed
To hold you in my arms
For one more day

So when these lights come fading out
Don't tell me I was broken
Or what to shout about
Cos' I know the night will come and fall on us
I know the night will break upon us

These nights that I've known
Have never taken my throne
Breathe me out till I know
There's nothing in this song
That you let fall away
So I could stay here now

I'll hold the waves so you won't sail away
I'll turn the tides to stay here in this light
And you and I
Will never know the night

Though the winter's long
We held on
The light fed away
But you and I stayed
To kindle this flame for our nights and our days
A broken embrace
So you won't fall away

In fading lights and drowning waves
The broken voice of one who's saved
Your soul in mine
We walk the line
In faded lights and fractured skies
The day we die this light divides
But you and I will still collide
The day we die this light divides
But you and I
Will never know the night

Night and Day

If I wanted to remember you
I know it would be hard
I wish I could say something romantic
Like I'll find you in my heart
But the truth is that I lost you
And I don't know where to start

Another sad song
'Bout where I might've belonged
If the blade didn't fall
If the sirens never called

A memory of light
Upon a landscape of you
And every curve could capture me
Like our bodies at least could tell the truth

If I wanted to find you now
I'd have no words to say
I'd thank you for the waves and the hurricanes
And I'd send you on your way
We were just night and day
