If you need to rise, if you need to rise don’t be hasty
If you need to walk, if you need to walk around here
Throw us a line, throw us a line but nothing holy
Born of a stern, born of a stern design

‘Cause you, you could never trust me
And I wish, I wish tonight would close
For the days burn through me like a winter
And I close my eyes so I can find

If you need to write, if you need to write don’t you muscle in
If you need to talk, if you need to talk to get through
Drawing the lines, drawing the lines I would be colouring
Colouring all the trouble that you had held dear

‘Cause you, you could never hold me
And I wish, I wish tonight would close
For the days burn through me like a winter
And I close my eyes so I can find, find my way

I’m looking to the south of yours
I want you to stay
Stay at home
I’m calling from the northern soil
I watched this wall and saw I needed help
I needed to run
Costs a lot, they stole my name
I’m on my own
Low senses tore my game
I can be sure
Oh colour me in
Oh colour me in, two side
I’ll come my way
I’ll come your way
