This is not the end
This is just the beginning
And don't you know that everything we want
Is within our reach at fingertips length
We fought nonstop to make these nights our own
Now no one can take them away

Hands in the air (hands in the air)
No one make a sound (no one make a sound)
While your're in despair, we'll have our ears to the ground
Listening for the pulse that just might drive these hearts tonight
And I know we won't make it out alive

We could have had it all
Our backs against the wall
Our eyes blindfolded tight
Living what they call life

(We Could) We could have had it all
(Our Backs) Our backs against the wall
(Our Eyes) Our eyes blindfolded tight

Hands in the air (hands in the air)
No one make a sound (no one make a sound)
While your're in despair, we'll have our ears to the ground
Listening for the pulse that just might drive these hearts tonight
And I know we won't make it out alive

We won't make it out alive
When you burn down these bridges
And you build up these walls
And you tore out these pages
And there's nothing left at all
And when that day comes
And we're all still here
Will you be waiting?
Will you be waiting?

Hands in the air (hands in the air)
No one make a sound (no one make a sound)
While your're in despair, we'll have our ears to the ground
Listening for the pulse that just might drive these hearts tonight
And I know we won't make it out alive
And I know we won't make it out alive

    General Commenti think it's "while you're in despair" not "Wandering this sphere"

    General Commentyeah, i think it's "while you're in despair" too...i just downloaded their ep the other day and i love it. the singer has kind of a unique voice but it sounds like somebody i can't place...this song isn't as good as some of the other on "until we get caught" but it's still okay. i really like hit the lights, i hope they put out a full length album.

    General CommentI have 2 questions about these lyrics... is it "Hands in the air" or is it really "and in the end"....and is it "drives these hearts tonight" or "drive these arm tonight"?

    because it sounds like he's saying the 1st ones, and it's def. "While you're in despair"...

    General CommentOur backs against the wall means that they are cornered or trapped.

    His voice reminded me of Brendon Urie (Panic!) I don't know why but that's what came into my head.

    General Commenthighfive5: I know, but i guess these things happen.
    A new singer would change the sound of the whole band.
