Oh let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the light
Your father's on his way back home from sight
Your mother's in the kitchen batting her eyelashes
She would never be the one to despise
That our heartbeat stopped as we plunged through the ice

We're broken down lovers at the side of the road
We're broken down lovers in the city of oil
There's nothing going wrong in your empty home
There's nothing going wrong and we'll leave it alone
Let's slip under the covers just to save our lives
And our heartbeats stopped as we plunged through the ice

Triple up your socks to dodge frostbite
Cutting through Barnes' yard deep in the night
Rough and tumble lovers underneath the covers tonight
I was holding on to you and you were holding me tight
Nothings going wrong and nothings ever going

Oh, Let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight

Nothings going wrong and nothings ever holding us down
Nothings going wrong and no ones ever holding us down

Your parents they say there's beautiful things in this whole place
Your parents they say there's beautiful things in this whole place
Now your parents say there's nothing for us in this whole place
Don't you need to stay and dream of how you're going

Oh, Let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight

    Lyric CorrectionOh let's lie down for another night
    I'll hold you close under these skies
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
    We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the light
    Your father's on his way back home from site
    Your mother's in the kitchen batting her eyelash
    She would never want to be the one to despise
    And our heartbeats stopped as we plunge through the ice

    We're broken down lovers at the side of the road
    We're broken down lovers in the city of oil
    There's nothing going wrong in your empty home
    There's nothing going wrong and we'll leave it alone
    Let's slip under the covers just to save our lives
    And our heartbeats stopped as we plunge through the ice

    Triple up your socks to dodge the frostbite
    Cutting through Barnes' Yard hip deep in the night
    Rough and tumble lovers underneath the covers tonight
    I was holding onto you and you were holding me tight
    Nothing's going wrong and nothing's ever going

    Oh let's lie down for another night
    I'll hold you close under these skies
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
    And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight

    Nothing's going wrong and nothing's ever holding us down
    Nothing's going wrong and no one's ever holding us down
    Your parents, they say "There's beautiful things in this old place"
    Your parents, they say "There's beautiful things in this cold place"
    Now your parents say "There's nothing for us in this old place"
    Don't leave me to stay and dream of how you're growing old.

    Let's lie down for another night
    I'll hold you close under these skies
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
    We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
    And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight
