Have you ever been compelled
Under a spell
From a protagonist who knows you far too well
Have you ever been undone
By a slip of the tongue
and betrayed a side of you that felt hard won
So we watch the water swell
From a Scottish hotel
Have you ever fell
Have you ever fell

Are you gonna tell me why
There's a backpack by the bedroom window
It's a pack of lies
Everything has to reach a peak sometime
Tell me why
There's a map lain flat on the bedside table
It's a pack of lies
It's not a peak, it's a plateau
Let me know
When you wanna leave this island
Let me know
When you wanna hear my point of view

In the observation lounge
Couples ready to pounce
But there's a reticence from treading icy ground
So we watch the water swell
From a Scottish hotel
Have you ever fell
Have you ever fell

Are you gonna tell me why
There's a backpack by the bedroom window
It's a pack of lies
Everything has to reach a peak sometime
Tell me why
There's a map lain flat on the bedside table
It's a pack of lies
It's not a peak, it's a plateau
Let me know
When you wanna leave this island
Let me know
When you wanna hear my point of view
Let me know
When you wanna leave this island
Let me know
When you wanna hear my point of view

I'll stand up for you
I'll stand up for you
I'll stand up for you

I will act as a semaphore
I will guide you to a perfect landing
I will act as a distant shore
I will aim to be the last man standing for you
I will act as a semaphore
I will guide you to a perfect landing

I'll stand up for you
I'll stand up for you
When you wanna leave this island
When you wanna hear my point of view
