Is there a part of me that's part of you?
If I shed a tear, baby do you bleed?
Is there a heart in me that's close to you?
Is there a path to you I haven't seen?

I can't ever
Ever tell you why
You are my horizon
I'll just hold my tongue
I really wanna show you how I'm loving you
In my life
In my life
In my life

New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening
New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening

Crystal sparks when I spotted you
Ricocheting colours in a cavalcade
Eye of the storm is a part of you
The Empire's Sun the eternal flame

I can't ever
Ever tell you why
You are my horizon
I'll just hold my tongue
I really wanna show you how I'm loving you
In my life
In my life
In my life

New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening
New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening

Awakening
Awakening

There's a higher way from here
There's a higher way from here
There's a place we run from here
There's a place that's far from here

New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening
New innocence
Awakening in me, in me
Awakening

Awakening

    General CommentLOVE this song! So whimsical, and I like the retro sounding disco edge it has. So refreshing and beautiful to listen to!

    My InterpretationThese lyrics come from Empire of the Sun themselves, from their Facebook page :)

    I LOVE having the official lyrics now. I do think it's about loving somebody, probably somebody new, and trying to find the words to say how strongly they feel about them "I can't ever, ever tell you why you are my horizon - I'll just hold my tongue".

    I have a huge crush on someone right now, and whilst not all the words entirely relate, some them do to my situation.

    So yeah, they are my two cents :D But gorgeous, gorgeous song.
