Against the Current Brighter

It’s a brand new day, it’s never too late to start

Can’t live this life with an empty heart

Every single time that we lay it on the line

It’s a roller coaster ride for one

When you know it’s do or die and you’re running out of time

We gotta give it all we’ve got

All we’ve got

I want something more, a life worth fighting for

I don’t need a reason, to set the world on fire

And burn a little bit brighter now

There’s something beautiful hiding in the shadows

So set the world on fire

Let’s burn a little bit brighter now

Sometimes we gotta risk it all to chase a dream

It’s a dive in head first, all-or-nothing kind of thing

Every single time that we lay it on the line

It’s a roller coaster ride for one

When you know it’s do or die and you’re running out of time

We gotta give it all we’ve got

I want something more, a life worth fighting for

I don’t need a reason, to set the world on fire

And burn a little bit brighter now

There’s something beautiful hiding in the shadows

So set the world on fire

Let’s burn a little bit brighter now

Can’t stand by and wait like the others

I’m front line and won’t run for cover

Head held high cause I’m burning brighter

Yeah I’m burning brighter

Can’t stand by and wait like the others

I’m front line and won’t run for cover

Head held high cause I’m burning brighter

I want something more, a life worth fighting for

I don’t need a reason, to set the world on fire

And burn a little bit brighter now

There’s something beautiful hiding in the shadows

So set the world on fire

Lets burn a little bit brighter now

It’s a brand new day, it’s never too late to start

Against the Current Demons

I read your veins like lines on a map

But I got no destination

See the smoke and the signals rise from my breath

And the flames are cold and patient

I filled you with a wonderland

Born of my imagination and

Go I can’t

Cause my demons tied me down

With silk chains wrapped around

My soul it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

But demons take control

Like toxins in my soul

I know it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

Oh no

They’re just demons

I’m pushing through the blood in you

To heal where you’ve been hurting

And I’m so numb I don’t feel it run

When it stains the walls around me

I filled the room with shades of you

Drawn in my imagination and

Go I can’t

Cause my demons tied me down

With silk chains wrapped around

My soul it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

But demons take control

Like toxins in my soul

I know it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

Oh no

They’re just demons

They’re just demons

They’re just demons

They’re just demons

Staring up the road

Sick of the darkness and the cold

The chains are wearing thin

Oh I’m fighting for us both

I built this wonderland

Drenched in the colors of your skin and

Go I can

Cause my demons tied me down

But silk chains are broken now

I know it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

But demons take control

Like toxins in my soul

I know it seems so obvious

That I should put an end to this

Oh no

They’re just demons

They’re just demons

Against the Current All Too Well

I walked through the door with you, the air was cold,

But something ’bout it felt like home somehow.

And I left my scarf there at your sister’s house,

And you still got it in your drawer even now.

Oh, your sweet disposition and my wide-eyed gaze.

We’re singing in the car, getting lost Upstate.

Autumn leaves falling down like pieces into place,

And I can picture it after all these days.

And I know it’s long gone,

And that magic’s not here no more,

And I might be okay,

But I’m not fine at all.

‘Cause there we are again on that little town street.

You almost ran the red ’cause you were looking over me.

Wind in my hair, I was there, I remember it all too well.

Photo album on the counter, your cheeks were turning red.

You used to be a little kid with glasses in a twin-size bed

And your mother’s telling stories about you on a tee ball team

You tell me ’bout your past, thinking your future was me.

And I know it’s long gone

And there was nothing else I could do

And I forget about you long enough

To forget why I needed to…

‘Cause there we are again in the middle of the night.

We dance around the kitchen in the refrigerator light

Down the stairs, I was there, I remember it all too well, yeah.

Maybe we got lost in translation, maybe I asked for too much,

And maybe this thing was a masterpiece ‘before you tore it all up.

Running scared, I was there, I remember it all too well.

Hey, you call me up again just to break me like a promise.

So casually cruel in the name of being honest.

I’m a crumpled up piece of paper lying here

‘Cause I remember it all, all, all… too well.

Against the Current In Our Bones

We are wild flowers

The city is our field of gold

We’ve got wild fire

In our bones

We’re born to be electric

You and me, we’re painting neon under our skin

It’s a force you shouldn’t mess with

Cause you and me, we’re glowing bright

Radioactive

Bruises come and go

But our hearts beat louder

Than the thunder from the storm

In our darkest hours

We are not invincible

But we’re both stronger than we know

In our bones

In our bones

We’ve got super powers

The city is our silver screen

Running ’round this little town

Wild and free

We’re born to be electric

You and me, we’re painting neon under our skin

It’s a force you shouldn’t mess with

Cause you and me, we’re glowing bright

Radioactive

Bruises come and go

But our hearts beat louder

Than the thunder from the storm

In our darkest hours

We are not invincible

But we’re both stronger than we know

In our bones

In our bones

We are wild flowers

The city is our field of gold

We’ve got wild fire

In our bones

Bruises come and go

But our hearts beat louder

Than the thunder from the storm

In our darkest hours

We are not invincible

But we’re both stronger than we know

In our bones

In our bones

In our bones

In our bones

In our bones

In our bones

Against the Current Guessing

I get lost in you

You’re the sky I’m falling through

The clouds to the ground

Won’t you catch me now?

Two roads converge

And neither moves forwards

We’re stuck at an impasse

Can this last now?

When you stay up

I’m crashing down (down)

When you stay up

I’m crashing down

Now it feels like we’re guessing and I don’t know

I could stay or I could let you go

Don’t wanna say that I’ve been wasting my time

But it feels like we’re guessing

And I can’t wait all my life

So hard moving on

This’ll be the last one

How many times can I say

That you broke me in every way

There’s nothing left to prove

He rose up and I fell through

Lost in space and I can’t

I can’t face what’s in my way

When you stay up

I’m crashing down (I’m crashing down)

When you stay up

I’m crashing down

Now it feels like we’re guessing and I don’t know

I could stay or I could let you go

Don’t wanna say that I’ve been wasting my time

But it feels like we’re guessing

And I can’t wait all my life

And everything that you’ve ever said

Is burned into back of my head

I can’t forget, I can’t forget

Don’t be giving up on me now

Think I got you all figured out

You stay up I’m crashing down

I get lost in you

You’re the sky I’m falling through

The clouds to the ground

Now it feels like we’re guessing and I don’t know

I could stay or I could let you go

Now it feels like we’re guessing and I don’t know

I could stay or I could let you go

Don’t wanna say that I’ve been wasting my time

But it feels like we’re guessing

And I can’t wait all my life

Against the Current One More Weekend

It’s been a minute

Everything’s the same but different

Everyone moved on or stayed too long

Doing the same things

Can’t help but miss it

Thought I might come back and visit you

And I moved on but we’ve still got

A whole lot of history

Is it too late?

I know we went separate ways

But I just wanted to say

Hey

Yo, I’m back home for the weekend

Called you up but you were sleeping

I wanna do those things we used to do

Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets

Wrote our names in the wet cement

We can’t go back again

But we can pretend for one more weekend

One more weekend

We said forever

Never thought our time together’d ever stop

But it did and we’re not kids anymore

I’ve got our photos in a drawer

People don’t keep those anymore

But I did, can’t get rid of who we were before

Is it too late?

I know we went separate ways

But I just wanted to say

Hey

Yo, I’m back home for the weekend

Called you up but you were sleeping

I wanna do those things we used to do

Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets

Wrote our names in the wet cement

We can’t go back again

But we can pretend for one more weekend

One more weekend

Monday will wash away the fantasies

We’ll have to go back and face reality

But we’ve got forever between now and then

We can pretend

Yo, I’m back home for the weekend

Called you up but you were sleeping

I wanna do those things we used to do

Back when we ran these neighbourhood streets

Wrote our names in the wet cement

We can’t go back again

But we can pretend for one more weekend

One more weekend

We can pretend for one more weekend

One more weekend

One more weekend

One more weekend, yeah

Against the Current Young & Relentless

Sleepless night

Bloodshot morning

Runway lights

London calling

We could be any place, any time, in any moment

It’s a race to the line

Break away from the life that they sold ya

Pack a bag, say goodbye

All we know is go, go, go

All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable

Sleep when we’re dead

Live like we’re invincible

We’re young and relentless

Get up, get out your mind ‘cause you never know

No way to hit rewind once your eyes close

We’re young and relentless

We go, go, go

We go, go, go

Jetlag daydream

No permanent address

It’s like a memory fading

Of a New York sunset

Yeah, we could be any place, any time, in any moment

It’s a race to the line

Break away from the life that they sold ya

Pack a bag, say goodbye

All we know is go, go, go

All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable

Sleep when we’re dead

Live like we’re invincible

We’re young and relentless

Get up, get out your mind ‘cause you never know

No way to hit rewind once your eyes close

We’re young and relentless

We go, go, go

We go, go, go

All we know is go, go, go

All we know is go, go, go

We got, we got the life unbelievable

Sleep when we’re dead

Live like we’re invincible

We’re young and relentless

Get up, get out your mind ‘cause you never know

No way to hit rewind once your eyes close

We’re young and relentless

We go, go, go

We go, go, go

Against the Current Closer, Faster

When it gets dark we’re falling far tonight

Under the moonlight chasing fireflies

If I’d ask you, “do you think you want to?”

Just say yes without feeling like you got to

It’s the way that you looked at me

That night

When the butterflies

They came to life

By your side

So won’t you pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

Boy don’t make me wait forever

Oh-oh

You know we’d be so much better

If we could fall in love together

Pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

You lift me up take my feet off the ground

With just one look it’s like you’ve got me now

Left me speechless, didn’t know I’d feel this

Just say yes, boy you know that we could do this

I’m the one you’ve been dreaming of

And that’s why

The butterflies

They come to life

Every time

So won’t you pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

Boy don’t make me wait forever

Oh-oh

You know we’d be so much better

If we could fall in love together

Pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

It’s in the sound of your voice

You’ve got me caught up in your eyes

And under all the stars

Can you feel the butterflies?

And even at the summer’s end

You left with all your promises

I still remember when you said

We could make it last

So won’t you pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

Boy don’t make me wait forever

Oh-oh

You know we’d be so much better

If we could fall in love together

Pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

So won’t you pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

Boy don’t make me wait forever

Oh-oh

You know we’d be so much better

If we could fall in love together

Pull me closer, kiss me faster

Take me to your happily ever after

Against the Current Imasugu Kiss Me

Waiting on the overpass

I recognized your jacket

I ran as fast as I could go to

you amidst the crowd

I can feel my heart racing

I don’t wanna lie

Your words are spinning around

But I won’t say no thank you

Today I’ll tell my usual old

timid self good bye

I can feel my heart racing

I don’t wanna lie, oh yeah

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

Perfect in every way, you already know

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

All I know is I love you so

Not worried about all the small things

As long as we can get by

I got my ticket right here

With a map to your heart

I can feel my heart racing

I don’t wanna lie, oh yeah

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

Perfect in every way, you already know

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

All I know is I love you so

I can feel my heart racing

I don’t wanna lie, oh yeah

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

Perfect in every way, you already know

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

All I know is I love you so

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

Perfect in ever way, you already know

Come on baby, kiss me

Tell me “I miss you”

All I know is I love you so

Against the Current Something You Need

That night I still remember

It was warm in the middle of summer

Your voice like a lullaby, so low, so sweet

Thought you had me but I’d never been so free

Now you’re scared but you don’t know why

You keep running but there’s nowhere to hide

[Chorus:]

You never thought I’d ever be

Something you want, something you need

Uh, oh, we got lost in the summer heat

Now you just can’t get over me

We’ll spend the night watching movies in the dark

You’re playing bands I’ve never heard of

And I know you tend to always overthink

But tonight it’s as simple as just kiss me

Now you’re scared but you don’t know why

You keep running but there’s nowhere to hide

Scared to care because then you lose

Try and hide how you feel but I feel it, too

[Chorus]

Take all of your doubts and throw them away

We’re falling tonight tell me that you’ll stay

You’ll stay

[Chorus x2]
