I'm a fool for the summer soundtrack
A loss by five AM
I've got the key to six strings around my neck
A voice for the wondering
No guts for affection
I praise the wave just out of spite
Wrench the hearts like the the thieves on board
Throw the saints over the side
I warm I'm catastrophe
Sweetheart, I'm as calloused as open seas
And I salt the bay
Terrified and holding tight
I can't sleep with somebody by my side
But I've found my way

The body and slow-burner are keeping us alive
In the grave
Like thunder, I'll shake your stars so deafening
I'll steal your heart away
I'll steal your heart away

We sway to the rhythm creating heat
Young man, young man come rumble and just believe
That it's safe, safe and lonely
Safe, it's safe and lonely
Are we hopeless
Are we hopeless
How subtle your lips on low lit night
No commitment to bide the time
How subtle your lips on a low lit night

The body and slow-burner are keeping us alive
In the grave
Like thunder, I'll shake your stars so deafening
I'll steal your heart away
I'll steal your heart away

I was brash, I was bold
I was eaten alive
And this is all I have left
A morning cough and hunger that won't subside
I found my way
Take the rest of these days in the field with stride
We were brash, we were bold
We were eaten alive
I found my way
We were brash, we were bold
We were eaten alive
