lyrics

Tell me
My lines are distinguished, like I'm in control
Tell me
The sadness I carry is the same that you hold
Tell me
We got this, we're heroes, we'll never grow old
Why can't
You make me feel better at the cost of your soul?

And all I wanted from you
Was to be friends
Slow motion gunfights
Partners to the end, now
Each broken window bears the miracle of flight
The more that I describe it to you, baby
The less that I can focus on the fight

Tell me
Your lines are corrupt, set in deep by the cold
Tell me
The sadness I carry's something I have to own
Tell me
We had this, we lost it, and now we're too old
I tried
To make you feel better and it cost me my soul

And all I wanted from you
Was to be friends
Slow motion gunfights
Partners to the end, now
Each broken window bears the miracle of flight
The more that I describe it to you, baby
The less that I can focus on the fight
And the tequila that my name was predicated
Has made me oversensitive to light

Though the time that we spent doesn't have to be over
There's a limit to the weight I can keep on my shoulders
The best on the force and the worst takin' orders
Let's pick up what we can, make a break for the border.

And all I wanted from you
Was to be friends
Slow motion gunfights
Partners to the end, now
Each broken window bears the miracle of flight
The more that I describe it to you, baby...

I'll take you to service
Only if they're doing work
Benches reupholstered
Explosives in the church spire
Doves surround us as we storm into the night
We barely have the time to shield a baby
As we dive out through the window towards the light
We abseil through the fire with reckless fury
Take on fear to stand for what was right
