the stakes have been raised
i've been driving for days
life was chasing a whim
that's disguised as a dream
but soon
what i'll be thinking's
not what i've been thinking
the call came today
everything's about to change
got used to the feeling
life's not what you make it
and we were so safe
in our routines i faked
but they've just put the lights on
i see the horizon
they want it
i'm writhing
it's too late
can't walk out now

(prechorus)
we're climbing so higher
and higher and higher
the sound of my breath
it fades with the light
we're climbing so higher
and higher and higher
but i left my thoughts down there
with you last night


swore i would escape
from what others had made
the most comfortable days
i thought i'd always hate
but with every day
what i want seems to change
it just scares me to think
you'll get thrown in someday
our faces can't hide
what i'm feeling inside
wondering how anyone
can stand to live this way
but they've forced my attention
you can't help but hear them
they call us
divide us
it's too late
can't get out now

(prechorus)

(chorus)
we'll drink till
we're cold
then we'll make our way home
you can sleep on the road
it's my fault
and they know
+
but i'll fix things
get us back i swear
i'm trying i'm trying
while knowing
it might be too late
but i can't say it

(bridge)
let's try for something
that we've never had
i'll give this up
just let me lead

(chorus)
+
and they know something's wrong
and they follow me close
when i don't see an end
don't know how i'll pretend
that we'll make it
make it back i swear
and i'm trying i'm trying
while knowing
it might be too late
