SONG LYRICS

Learn to fly,
Learn to fly,
Show the world
How you try.But don’t let go
Until you know,
Until you know
Me.

‘Cause I can see,
I can see
All the things
Arresting me.
But I control,
I control.

When I get home,
When I get home,
I want to feel less alone.
I couldn’t feel,
I couldn’t feel
Anybody.

This isn’t home,
This isn’t home,
I couldn’t feel more alone.
I need to feel,
I need to feel
Somebody.

‘Cause I see the world
In different colours
To someone like you.

The city will pull you in
Romantic and drenched in sin, love
You only have but a time
Until this place
Will swallow you whole

And everything I cannot imagine.
This dim-lit room has seen much before me.
And I don’t want
To ever know,
To know.

The city will pull you in
Romantic and drenched in sin, love
You only have but a time
Until this place
Will swallow you whole
