Wildfire Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Stand By You

Hands, put your empty hands in mine
And scars, show me all the scars you hide
And hey, if your wings are broken
Please take mine so yours can open too
Cause I'm gonna stand by you
Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes
And hurt, I know you're hurting, but so am I
And love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine 'til yours can open too
Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you

Yeah, you're all I never knew I needed
And the heart, sometimes it's unclear why it's beating
And love, if your wings are broken
We can brave through those emotions too
Cause I'm gonna stand by you
Oh, truth, I guess truth is what you believe in
And faith, I think faith is having a reason
Nah, nah, nah, love, if your wings are broken
Borrow mine 'til yours can open too
Cause I'm gonna stand by you

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you

I'll be your eyes 'til yours can shine
I'll be your arms, I'll be your steady satellite
And when you can't rise, well, I'll crawl with you on hands and knees
Cause I...
(I'm gonna stand by you)

Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through (come on)
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through Hell with you
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you
Love, you're not alone
Oh I'm gonna stand by you
(Even if we can't find heaven, heaven, heaven)
Yeah I'm gonna stand by you

Hey Hey Hallelujah

[Rachel Platten:]
I'm turning you up; I'm turning you on
Your head's saying "danger, danger," but your heart must be drunk
And I know you don't settle and I know you're not weak
But I think you can't help it, help it, when it comes to me, ooh

I really got a hold on you
You're begging me for more
You never seen nobody do the things I do before
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah
Yeah, I drive you crazy and your heart's about to break
You're begging me for more; see, don't know how much I can take
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah

Tonight I'm so cold and I'm calling you back
But tomorrow we'll cuddle, cuddle, my legs in your lap (you know it)
And your friends try to warn you: "she'll tear you apart"
"She's nothing but trouble, trouble
She's playing you hard"

I really got a hold on you
You're begging me for more
You never seen nobody do the things I do before
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah
Yeah, I drive you crazy and your heart's about to break
You're begging me for more; see, don't know how much I can take
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah

Baby don't worry, I'm sugar and sweet
Baby don't worry, I'm good as can be
Baby don't worry, I'm sugar and sweet
Baby don't worry, I'm good as can be

[Andy Grammer:]
I'm singing hallelujah when you touch me
Hallelujah, Jeff Buckley
Coming home to all my clothes out on the street
Five minutes later asking me where we eating
Makin' me feel good when you put me on my knees
Love me like you should and you make me wanna scream Hallelujah; can't win
I don't wanna lose you; all in

[Rachel Platten:]
I really got a hold on you
You're begging me for more
You never seen nobody do the things I do before
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah
Yeah, I drive you crazy and your heart's about to break
You're begging me for more; see, don't know how much I can take
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah

I really got a hold on you
You're begging me for more
You never seen nobody do the things I do before
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah
Yeah, I drive you crazy and your heart's about to break
You're begging me for more; see, don't know how much I can take
Singing hey hey hallelujah, hey hey hallelujah

Speechless

Why does this part always go fast?
And I really want this to last so bad
Words distract us, but we know the truth
So hush, baby, my heart's speaking to you

Just give me that touch, I want it
Quit talking so much, I'm ready
Stop moving your lips and kiss me
Keep taking my breath away

Cause you make me speechless
You quiet my demons
So why don't we hold tonight and just kill me silently
I don't need a reason when you make me speechless
We're getting loud tonight, we're allowed tonight to be
C'mon baby, make me speechless
C'mon baby, make me

Body language screaming everything
And keep giving it to me, fire away

Just give me that touch, I want it
Quit talking so much, I'm ready
Stop moving your lips and kiss me
Keep taking my breath away

Cause you make me speechless
You quiet my demons
So why don't we hold tonight and just kill me silently
I don't need a reason when you make me speechless
We're getting loud tonight, we're allowed tonight to be
C'mon baby, make me speechless

When you touching me, when you're kissing me
Nothing left to say
I'm speechless, get ahold of me, kill me silently
Nothing left to say

Cause you make me speechless
You quiet my demons
So why don't we hold tonight and just kill me silently
I don't need a reason when you make me speechless
We're getting loud tonight, we're allowed tonight to be
C'mon baby, make me speechless
C'mon baby, make me shhh
C'mon baby, make me speechless

Don't say a word
C'mon baby, make me

Beating Me Up

We threw words like they were sharp knives
Fell like we tripped over a landmine
You said we lost love
You made your mind up
And I just got quiet, my body went numb

And I pretend that I can handle it and if I hold my head up, I won't drown
Can't let go, you're like the chemical, you're racing through me
My heart just pounds, pounds, pounds...

It's getting louder and louder
Every time I think about you, about you
I'll be better off without you, without you
I wish my heart would stop, I wish my heart would stop
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up

You've moved on, I know I should too
My cuts are all gone, my pain feels brand new
Who turned the lights down? Who took my flashlight?
Why does my heart sound like it might burst tonight?

It's getting louder and louder
Every time I think about you, about you
I'll be better off without you, without you
I wish my heart would stop, wish my heart would stop
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
I wish my heart would stop
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
I wish my heart would stop

I won't let you get the best of me
How'd my heart become my enemy?
I won't let you get the best of me
How'd my heart become my enemy?

(Beating me up, beating me up)
(Beating me up, beating me up)

It's getting louder (louder, louder) every time I think about you (about you, about you)
I'll be better off without you (without you, without you)
I wish my heart would stop
I wish my heart would stop
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Beating me up
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Whoa, whoa
Wish my heart would
(Whoa, oh, whoa)
Wish my heart would stop
Beating me up

Beating me up

Fight Song

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried about me
In too deep
Say I'm in too deep
And it's been two years
I miss my home
But there's a fire burning in my bones
And I still believe
Yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Now I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Better Place

I'll tell the world, I'll sing a song
It's a better place since you came along
Since you came along
Your touch is sunlight through the trees
Your kisses are the ocean breeze
Everything's alright when you're with me

And I hold my favorite thing
I hold the love that you bring
But it feels like I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
There's a song in my heart, I feel like I belong
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

I see the whole world in your eyes
It's like I've known you all my life
We just feel so right
So I pour my heart into your hands
It's like you really understand
You love the way I am

And I hold my favorite thing
I hold the happiness you bring
But it feels like I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
And the sun paints the skies and the wind sings our song
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

Now I'm alright, now I'm alright
Everything's alright

Cause it feels like I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
There's a song in my heart, I feel like I belong
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

Lone Ranger

Maybe I'm selfish call me see-through
But I'm debating if I really need to
Be tied, tied to someone forever
Sure I get lonely sometimes and miss being together but hey!
I wanna roam from city to city
Let the highway and the crowd fill the hunger that's in me
Fill me up with fireworks and tell me I'm skinny
I could soak up the fire in the buzz they give me

Oooo-ooooo

Long nights, stay up late
Drink the sky, meditate

Oooo-ooooo

Open eyes, sunroof
Give me miles, give me truth

Sometimes I get high, sometimes I get low
But I'm calm as can be in a room full of strangers
But oh my, don't try to get close
I'm just gonna leave 'cause baby I'm a lone ranger

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na (I'm a Lone Ranger)

I'm a lion, I'm a tiger
I'm a caged-bird, I'm on fire
Got these paper wings, but they don't hold the air
Get so close to somebody, but I don't stay there
Much less brave than I admit
Much more scared than they all think
But I'm protecting the organ in my chest
'Cause the blood, sweat, and tears they can make quite a mess

Oooo-ooooo

Open eyes, open roof
Give me miles, give me truth

Sometimes I get high, sometimes I get low
But I'm calm as can be in a room full of strangers
But oh my, don't try to get close
I'm just gonna leave 'cause baby I'm a lone ranger

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
'Cause baby I'm a lone ranger

[x2:]
I don't want to get broken baby
I don't want to get broken baby
I don't want to get broken babe, cut open babe, cut open babe

Sometimes I get high, sometimes I get low
But I'm calm as can be in a room full of strangers
But oh my, don't try to get close
I'm just gonna leave 'cause baby
I'm a lone ranger

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
(Sometimes I get high)
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na
('Cause baby I'm a lone ranger)

But oh my, don't try to get close
I'm just gonna leave 'cause baby I'm a lone ranger

You Don't Know My Heart

Hey my fists are tight and I'm afraid
Cause I cannot, I cannot explain
Your heart is like a hurricane
But can't you see I'm so in pain
Guess I'm not cause I don't talk
And then you write me off again
And I don't think you understand at all

I don't wanna use my mouth
Don't know how to spell it out
Every time I try, it sucks
I just wish you could open me up
And see-e-e-e all the confusion
And the love, the hurt, the wrong words I'm using
Cause tonight, it feels like...

Like you don't know my heart
You, you don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
You don't know, you don't know my heart
You, you don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh

Why, you say I never really see
That it's only ever about me?
Like I don't listen when you speak
Like it doesn't kill me when your tears fall out
And I cannot catch it
And I do not have the perfect expression
And I don't think you understand at all

I don't wanna use my mouth
Don't know how to spell it out
Every time I try, it sucks
I just wish you could open me up
And see-e-e-e all the confusion
And the love, the hurt, the wrong words I'm using
Cause tonight, it feels like...

Like you don't know my heart
You, you don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
You don't know, you don't know my heart
You, you don't know, you don't know my heart

Feels like eh
Like you don't know my
Feels like eh
Like you don't know my
Feels like
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh, eh, eh, eh

I don't wanna use my mouth
Don't know how to spell it out
Every time I try, it sucks
I just wish you could open me up
And see-e-e-e all the confusion
And the love, the hurt, the wrong words I'm using
Cause tonight, it feels like...

Like you don't know my heart
Feels like
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
Like you don't know my heart
Feels like
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like
You don't know, you don't know my heart
Feels like eh

Angels In Chelsea

Last night I saw a suit give a buck to a bum
20 feet down the street, someone yelling, look up
Some girl, maybe 18, probably drunk
Just in time, out the way of a bus

And maybe things are finally getting better, better
Maybe everyone is finally fed up enough
Maybe all the clouds are gonna let up, let up

Brown bags, Sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
Wall Street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

Spring Street, hear a busker singing the blues
'Bout peace in the world and some money for food
And little kid says, "I'm gonna be like you
A superstar, and I'ma make a difference too
And I'ma make a difference too"

And maybe things are finally getting better, better
Maybe everyone is finally fed up enough
Maybe all the clouds are gonna let up, let up

Brown bags, Sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
Wall Street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

Subway, saw a woman in a beautiful dress
Head down in her hands, makeup a mess
Young mom, two kids, holes in their shoes
Says I've been there too, and you're gonna get through
Yeah, I've been there too and you're gonna get through

Brown bags, Sky high, I see angels in Chelsea
Wall Street, chic life, I see angels in Chelsea
Lost souls pass by through the chain link and concrete
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels around me
And everywhere I look tonight, I see angels in Chelsea

I see packing in the crossstreets
I see angels in Chelsea
I see angels around me
All these angels in Chelsea
All these angels around me
All these angels around me
I see angels in Chelsea

Astronauts

Let's meet up far away
Where astronauts and gravity
Have opened up the atmosphere
We'll be so safe up here
Navigating the space, we'll create our own star
And I'll name it after you
We'll be so calm up there, we'll fly around with the quiet air
The sun will bring us 'round again, inhaling and orbiting
Our great planet will fit on the tip of your thumb
You'll say I finally see how time stops
And everything that hurts us drops off

I'll be what you want when everything is gone
Let the world disappear, there are places up here we can hide
We'll be safe way up high
Somewhere only we can find

I know it's safe from being called out or evaluated
And people change on a whim, so cue the violence
Let's go rescue a planet that's been thrown away
You'll name it after me
Cause after all we're only one triumphant bang away
From resting in infinity or darkness or some brighter place
Let's not waste one more second on caring about
Trying to figure out what looks right
Cause that can't take away that you're mine

I'll be what you want when everything is gone
Let the world disappear, there are places up here we can hide
We'll be safe way up high
Somewhere only we can find
I'll be what you want when everything is gone
Let the world disappear, there are places up here we can hide
We'll be safe way up high
Somewhere only we can find

Mine, suddenly the stars got flash light
Universe will make your eyes shine
Can't you feel away that time stops?
Everything that hurts drops off

Now I'll be what you want when everything is gone
Let the world disappear, there are places up here we can hide
We'll be safe way up high
Somewhere only we can find
I'll be what you want when everything is gone
Let the world disappear, there are places up here we can hide
We'll be safe way up high
Somewhere only we can find

Congratulations

I'm stupid and confused
My ego's raw and bruised
Your words were weapons and
They tore me down again
We play our conversation
You threw your accusations
I'm always so complaisant
I never change the station

Help me find a sharper knife
I need to cut you out my life
I take it all, I let it slide
But hey, you went too far this time

Congratulations, got what you wanted, your winning now
Congratulations, you got your shot and you wore me down
And I really don't think you get it now
No I really don't think you get it now
It's killing me, I admit it now
Congratulations, you tore my heart out, congratulations

It must feel good digested to be so damn aggressive
But the pounding in my chest is, begging for protection
You think you're innocence, pure gold and heaven sent
But, my tears are instruments, they sound like consequences

Help me find a sharper knife
I need to cut you out my life
I take it all, I let it slide
But hey, you went too far this time

Congratulations, got what you wanted, your winning now
Congratulations, you got your shot and you wore me down
And I really don't think you get it now
No I really don't think you get it now
It's killing me, I admit it now
Congratulations, you tore my heart out, congratulations

Save me from myself cause I, need somebody's help
Yeah, I dig the deepest wells and I get lost
You, you got it all I guess
And me, I'll take the fall for this

Ohhh

Help me find a sharper knife
I need to cut you out my life
I take it all, I let it slide
But hey, you went too far this time

Congratulations, got what you wanted, your winning now
Congratulations, you got your shot and you wore me down
And I really don't think you get it now
No I really don't think you get it now
It's killing me, I admit it now
Congratulations, you tore my heart out, congratulations

Nah nah nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah nah nah

Superman

If I could break away half of all your pain
I'd take the worst of it and carry you like you carry me
You say that you're alright when tears are in your eyes
We're strong enough for this and I need you
It's okay that you need me
So put your armor on the ground tonight
Cause everyone's got to come down sometime

You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to hold the world in your hands
You've already shown me that you can
Don't have to be Superman

I know I've been gone too much
We talk about me too much
I'm selfish and distracted
But I'm here, I'm here and listening
And It's just you and me and these four walls
And we are only human after all

You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to hold the world in your hands
You've already shown me that you can
Don't have to be Superman

And oh
Rest your eyes now, take my hand
Even heroes fall down now and then
You can let it go

You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to be Superman
You don't have to hold the world in your hands
You've already shown me that you can
Don't have to be Superman
You don't have to be Superman

Lonely Planet

(Target Bonus Track)

Strangers passing on the subway
Ghost's inhabiting the same cold hallway
Dragging round the broken hearts
Searching each other for the missing parts

Yeah does it always feel so lonely here for everybody
Doesn't anybody find somebody in this story
Strangers passing on the subway
I'd give anything to know your name

We are spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Is this all we, all we are?
All we are is spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Does it ever break your heart?

And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your charm
Wanna feel your pain
And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your joy
Wanna feel your pain

Soldiers passing on the sidewalk
Hiding heartache under too much makeup
I remember when we were so brave
And got back all that love we gave away

It doesn't have to be so lonely here for everybody
Doesn't anybody wanna feel a part of something
Soldiers passing on the sidewalk
Can we remember all that we forgot

We are spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Is this all we, all we are?
All we are is spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Does it ever break your heart?

And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your charm
Wanna feel your pain
And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your joy
Wanna feel your pain

We are spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Is this all we, all we are?
All we are is spirits dancing on a lonely planet
Does it ever break your heart?
Break your heart
And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your charm
Wanna feel your pain
And I wanna know your name, wanna feel your joy
Wanna feel your pain
