SNOW PATROL


Lifeboats Lyrics

Hold on, hold on
Let me get the words out before I burst
There's no truth at all
Poking at the giant eyes of ancient Gods

Cool heads have failed
Now it's time for me to have my turn
Kiss me, kiss me
Life is way too short to scream and shout

Flashed up in my wildest dreams the dark red blood streams
Stretching out like vast cracked ice
The veins of you, the veins of me like great forest trees
Pushing through and on and in

Gliding like a satellite in the broken night
And when I wake you're there, I'm saved
Your love is life piled tight and high, set against the sky
That seems to balance on it's own

Sing out, sing out
The silence only eats us from the inside up
I meant no harm
But I only get to say these words too late

Wake up, wake up
Sleeping only leads to more and more nightmares
Snap out of it
You said it in a way that showed you really cared

Flashed up in my wildest dreams the dark red blood streams
Stretching out like vast cracked ice
The veins of you, the veins of me like great forest trees
Pushing through and on and in

Gliding like a satellite in the broken night
And when I wake you're there, I'm saved
Your love is life piled tight and high set against the sky
That seems to balance on it's own

Send your lifeboats out for me
Send your lifeboat out
Send your lifeboats out for me
Send your lifeboat out

Send your lifeboats out for me
Send your lifeboat out
Send your lifeboats out for me
Send your lifeboat out
