Save me from this city and what I've become
The troubles on Mourne Road have hit far too close to hom
In nine days I came of age, nine hours away
My heart is nine hours away

Save me from these feelings of emptiness
What happened to the time? What happened to our lives?
I just wanted roots, now I only want to fly
Coffee stains and paper airplanes
Scattered letters on the floor
We're riding on a ship of fools and we've tied ourselves to the mast
There is no turning back

Ten tongues of wisdom speak all of life's answers
But you've got it together and I still have questions
We're just fools, fools who don't know what we're doing
But we're gonna do it anyway
The truth should set us free, but we're honest
And still we are chained to our own limitations
I miss this place already, I miss your face already

I fell in love underneath a Lurgan sky
As the wind tossed through our hair, guitar strums through the air
Inside our hearts, it was why why why
I never prayed for a revolution but I think that I need one now
I'm forced to send nine wide-eyed strangers
Into a cruel world and I'm not ready

Ten tongues of wisdom speak all of life's answers
But God only knows that we all still have questions
We're just fools, fools who don't know what we're doing
But we're just trying to get by
Who knew that strangers would, who knew that strangers could
Be thrown together and blend into family
I miss this place already, I miss your face already

Ten tongues of wisdom speak all of life's answers
But God only knows that we all still have questions
We're just fools, fools who don't know what we're doing
But we're gonna do it anyway
We're riding on a ship of fools and we've tied ourselves to the mast
There is no turning back
