Between The Stars Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Set Me On Fire

Oh, what a cold, dark world it is to walk through
Alone with a fear-filled head
Thinking of losing you is a haunted song
And a dread much worse than the fear of death

Now I feel the fear rising up
Climbing up, taking over my body
And I feel my pulse starting up
Waking me again

Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire
I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire

Your hand in mine, oh, I feel the fire
Two hearts that beat, oh, to feed the fire

You are a spark that shines a light
Where we could belong together, factionless
Let's keep it burning bright 'til we're floating away,
'til we're ashes dancing inside the flames

Now I feel the fear rising up
Climbing up, taking over my body
And I feel my pulse starting up
Waking me again

Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire
I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

Your hand in mine, oh, I feel the fire
Two hearts that beat, oh, to feed the fire

Open my eyes, I'm reaching for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire
I'm burning inside, I'm waiting for you
Set me on fire, set me on fire

Oh, oh, oh
Set me on fire, set me on fire
Oh, oh, oh
Set me on fire, set me on fire

Oh, oh, oh

Magnetic

You seem to know when I need to feel you closer
Pulling me places I've never been
There is a Light inside you that hypnotizes
Where I am ending is where you begin

Pulling me from the other side of the world, Magnetic
Filling up the space between the stars, we are Magnetic
Nothing's gonna come between us now
Always gonna find each other somehow
Magnetic, Magnetic
Oh, Magnetic, Magnetic

The waves you're sending to me, they're getting stronger
Pushing me back when I drift too far
So say you'll stay with me in this dream forever
Where I am ending is where you begin

Pulling me from the other side of the world, Magnetic
Filling up the space between the stars, we are Magnetic
Nothing's gonna come between us now
Always gonna find each other somehow
Magnetic, Magnetic
Oh, Magnetic, Magnetic

Always gonna find each other somehow
Always gonna find each other somehow
Magnetic

Pulling me from the other side of the world, Magnetic
Filling up the space between the stars, we are Magnetic
Nothing's gonna come between us now
Always gonna find each other somehow
Magnetic, Magnetic
Oh, Magnetic, Magnetic
Oh, Magnetic, Magnetic
Oh, Magnetic, Magnetic

Traitor

Pull your window down
Tinted glass is hiding your eyes
It's your favorite disguise
You don't make a sound
While you're taking me for a ride
Holding secrets inside

Traitor, this is my life
I'm too strong to lie down next to a mastermind
Traitor, every time
I'll no longer keep you a friend of mine

Tell me once again
How'd you build a kingdom of trust?
It's beginning to rust
And where have you been?
Promises were never enough
They collect in the dust

Traitor, this is my life
I'm too strong to lie down next to a mastermind
Traitor, every time
I'll no longer keep you a friend of mine

Traitor, this is my life
I'm too strong to lie down next to a mastermind
Traitor, every time
I'll no longer keep you a friend of mine

Platonic

It was cold when I came over
We were young, it was December
Stayed up late and watched a movie
About two friends that made each other angry

Pretend like we are more than friends
We'll see where the night ends
I wake up on your floor, you wake up in your bed
Still, I like to think you said
"It's not where the story ends"
We say our sweet goodbyes
Platonic jagged knives

The pretty girl home from the city
Met that old friend who made her angry
They walked the beach when it was raining
Fell in love, and then got married

Pretend like we are more than friends
We'll see where the night ends
I wake up on your floor, you wake up in your bed
Still, I like to think you said
"It's not where the story ends"
We say our sweet goodbyes

Platonic jagged knives
Knives (platonic jagged knives)
Knives (platonic jagged knives)
Knives (platonic jagged knives)
(Platonic jagged knives)

Head Underwater

Head underwater
Don't think I have the strength tonight
They push me any further
I will find the words to fight
'Cause what they say about me
Cuts deeper than the sharpest knife
And in my head a replay
I'm looking at that red light

I'll drown in the water
If I listen to the sound
Of cruel laughter
I let the stones fall to the ground
They don't know a thing about me
And still the wolves are crying out

And I hear you say, "I'll take you away"
So will you stand for something
And give them back the ammunition
Or will you let them tell you who you are
My love is deeper than the stars
You are bigger than the scars that you feel at night
When you're holding your pillow tight
And you're wishing someone would call you home

It's you and I alone
It's you and I alone
You and I alone
It's you and I alone
You and I alone
Head underwater
Don't think I have the strength tonight

Sober Serenade

Let your head fill up with sirens
Let the lights caress and spin you down
Close your eyes and wake inside your head again
Yeah, you've been wasted all day
But you reach for a pipe in a smoke-filled room
Head to the club and wreck your car again

I won't be the one to hold you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade
I won't be the one who knows you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade

Do you see the spell you're under
When you twist the knife that kills your soul
Or the pain you cause the ones you say you love
Or the people you leave waiting
While you build up to a perfect storm
When your lungs quit breathing will you say, "enough"

I won't be the one to hold you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade
I won't be the one who knows you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade
Say enough, say enough
Say enough, say enough
Say enough

Let your head fill up with sirens
Let the lights caress and spin you down
Close your eyes and wake inside your head again

I won't be the one to hold you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade
I won't be the one who knows you
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade

I won't be the one, won't be the one
Let go of my hand
This is the sober serenade
Serenade
Serenade

Thread

Feel the air, the air upon my skin and I
Feel the void, the void open wide
Chasing echoes through the maze of my mind
Bloodshot eyes, step into the night

I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
My parachute in shreds
I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
It's not the sun that sets

Resurrect the fear I hold inside
Resurrect the fear and chain my sight

I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
My parachute in shreds
I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
It's not the sun that sets

I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
My parachute in shreds
I'm hanging by a thread, I feel you when I fall
It's not the sun that sets

Marionette

I wanna cut me free, you wanna clip my wings
I'm made of flesh and bone, you wanna take control of me
You wanna dress me up, I wanna feel the sun
You wanna play pretend, I'm not about to bend, you'll see

This is not a game

You want the strings so you can
Pull at my soul and tear me down
You want it all, I'm not your marionette doll
So let me go

I'm taking back the day you tried to steal from me
I'm going to make my voice, you'll never get my choice to breathe

This is not a game

You want the strings so you can
Pull in my soul and tear me down
You want it all, I'm not your marionette doll
So let me go

Whoa, me go
Whoa

I wanna cut me free but you wanna clip my wings

You want the strings so you can
Pull in my soul and tear me down
You want it all, I'm not your marionette doll
So let me go

You want the strings so you can
Pull in my soul and tear me down
You want it all, I'm not your marionette doll
So let me go

Well Of Lies

Walking in the dark
Never always all I've seen
The stake in my heart is bring out the worst in me

All I need is what you given me
All I need is what you given me

I'm stuck inside
Slip down my well of lies
Become my own eyes
God set me free tonight!

I looked up to the light and feel the sky so far from me

I need a steady heart to given out the breathe, well see

All I need is what you given me
All I need is what you given me

I'm stuck inside
Slip down my well of lies
Become my own eyes
God set me free tonight!

Walking in the dark
Never always all I've seen
The stake in my heart is bring out the worst in me

I'm stuck inside
Slip down my well of lies
Become my own eyes
God set me free tonight!

I'm stuck inside
Slip down my well of lies
Become my own eyes

God set me free tonight!

City Kids

Walking through the city we grew up in, everything has changed again
I remember fighting to believe in truth and how the good will win

But we were young, almost in love
Too scared to reach out for what was

Walking past the house that you grew up in, man, it looks so different now
Remembering the story of your first kiss, the feeling of my heart ripped out

And we were young, almost in love
Too scared to reach out for what was
Looking back, we tried to laugh
Silly kids, the ghosts of past

You were just a girl, you wrote a letter, it said that we were dearest friends
I push myself to read a little further, it said we would be 'til we're dead

But we were young, almost in love
Too scared to reach out for what was
Looking back, we tried to laugh
Silly kids, the ghosts of past

Blue Roses

You said "come on, let's go down that yellow brick road"
But that path was primrose and led back to black and white
And now I know, since that day you chose to let me know
My hearts been tangled with thorns that choke the light
Oh, here I go, collecting roses to me from you
Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue

Gonna find my way, break the lock on the emerald city gates
It could be simple, but we're only half-awake
I feel the pain set in when I think of you and grip the stems
I feel my head begin to spin, I'm not alright

Oh, here I go, collecting roses to me from you
Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue
Let go of the stems, free to bloom again
Let go of the stems, free to bloom again

Oh, here I go, collecting roses to me from you
Oh, here I go, a dozen red for every wound
Oh, now I stop and smell the roses when they're blue
(Stop, stop, stop...)
Let go of the stems, free to bloom again
Free to bloom again when they're blue

Home

Don't give up yet
Stop trying to pretend
You're never gonna change
That might be true
You're gonna be a better you
Looking for signs
In the corner of your eyes
Take a breath and step outside
Don't hide the light inside of you

One step closer
We're looking out for brighter days
One step closer
We'll find our way back home
Time to go home
Every chance we take will lead us
Through the unknown
Home

Tears stain your eyes
But you didn't give up the fight
And now the fear won't paralyze
So leave your broken satellite
Every breath is a chance to know yourself
And show them what you're made of now
Forgiveness is the sweetest sound

One step closer
We're looking out for brighter days
One step closer
We'll find our way back home
Time to go home
Every chance we take will lead us
Through the unknown
Home

The time has come to take our chance
Fire, let me see you dance
Home
One step closer
We're looking out for brighter days
One step closer
We'll find our way back home
