lyrics

You lost it all that night
With the streets all lit up, there was beauty in your eyes
You said, "let me come back alive,
Could the soles of your shoes not spare for a lie?"

We stuck around for the snow
Me and You and Everyone We Know
You said, "what have we got to show?
Ground's still wet and our lungs are full of smoke"

I see the colours I earned
Beyond these walls is the city that I yearn
You've been doing just fine I heard

We waited 'round for it all
We stumbled through the streets with no idea of what we saw
You said, "let's pick ourselves up before we fall"
Threw our ashes to the ground, walked away and that was all

You lost it all that night
With the streets all lit up, there was beauty in your eyes
You screamed, "let me come back with my life"

I see the colours I earned
Beyond these walls is the city that I yearn
You've been doing just fine I heard

You gave yourself that night
We were sitting out back at 3am and we were fine
You said, "let's give our whole selves to this life"

I see the colours I earned
Beyond these walls is the city that I yearn
You've been doing just fine I heard

The colours I earned
