When you were young burning under the covers
And hundreds of lovers were trailing out behind you
Time will move just as fast as you pull it, quicker than a bullet
You know it's gonna remind you
How your heart, so sticky sweet, is waiting to attack
You play the hand you're given even though the deck is stacked
Until you're ready for the next one, yeah

And then a wise man taught you a lesson, while you were confessin'
Staring at the fire
Take your time, cus as long as you're livin' it's all that you're given
You are a slave to desire
You said "Oh sun come out today"
It said "I will not shine"
You begged the moon to light your way
It said "I must decline"

Because the fall makes you break
And the break it makes you see
That only the light gives you shape
In the darkness you stay shapeless
Only love gives you weight
Only love can keep you weighted
Only love keeps you weightless

Hahaha

All this time you have been aching for someone to trust
Filling all your days with taking
Doing all the things you must
Gravity is slowly breaking down your will
Don't hold it back
Don't hold it back
Don't hold it back
Don't hold it back

Because the fall makes you break
But the break it makes you see
That only the light gives you shape
In the darkness you stay shapeless
Only love gives you weight
Only love can keep you weighted
Only love ohhhh

Woah

When you were young burning under the covers
There were hundreds of lovers trailing out behind you
Time will move just as fast as you pull it, quicker than a bullet
You know it's gonna remind you
How your heart, so sticky sweet, is waiting to attack
You play the hand you're given even though you know the deck is stacked
And now you're ready for the next one, yeah
Yeah
