Baby put your hands on my hips, sway with me just like this
Give it just a minute, ‘cause it’s way too good to last
I want to stay here as long as I can
Your touch on my skin, this tenderness, all of the hope blossoming in my kiss (Oh-oh)

Flower petals in my head, lavender, yellow and red
We fit together way too well
I can tell that loss is inevitable
There’s so much to say, the timing is off, but is it ever really right, let’s be honest
There’s pain in my heart and dirt on my skin, wrestle me now on this bed of roses (Oh)

Give me a day to watch the sun open up on your face
Look at the way the colors all come crashing to life
Say you’ll stay, the gold is becoming the night
You light me up, you light me up

Baby won’t you look at me and see if you can still breathe
Throw me out a line that’s strong enough to hold across this cavern we both know
Potential and doom, bruises in bloom, and I will let you pour salt in the wound
It’s bigger than us, out here in the rough, baby, I think that might be enough (Oh)

CHORUS

Oh -- The light is so perfect you just want to lie in it, die in it -- Oh

INSTRUMENTAL

BROKEN CHORUS

CHORUS

You light me up, light me up
