Chvrches Now Is Not The Time

Vicious one how ever did you find me?

Time is wasted, words are cheap

Now it seems that we are not crazy

And lovers sow what lovers reap

Nothing now can ever come between us

As we hide and watch the city burn

There is much that I still want to tell you

But now is not the time to speak of love

Beckoning to me

More than memory

Words are useless here

Until you are near

Live in fear I cannot be your savior

There is no violence in your heart

Warriors are both time and patience

But you and I are worlds apart

We all, we all, we all saw the light

We are, we are, we are first and right

Nothing now can ever come between us

As we hide and watch the city burn

There is much that I still want to tell you

But now is not the time to speak of love

Beckoning to me

More than memory

Words are useless here

Until you are near

[x2]

Chvrches Leave A Trace

I gave up on time

Just like you said you would

There are tiny cracks of light underneath me

And you say I got it wrong

But I tried hard to uncover them

I have somehow got

Away with everything

Anything you ever did was strictly by design

But you got it wrong

And I’ll go anywhere but there

And you had best believe

That you cannot build what I don’t need

And I know I need to feel relief

And I know you’ll never fold

But I believe nothing that I’m told

And I know I need to feel relief

I know I need to feel released

Take care to tell it just as it was

Take care to tell on me for the cause

I know I need to feel released

Take care to bury all that you can

Take care to leave a trace of a man

I will show restraint

Just like we said we should

You think I’ll apologize for things I left behind

But you got it wrong

And I’m as sane as I ever was

You talk far too much

For someone so unkind

I will wipe the salt off of my skin

And I’ll admit that I got it wrong

And there is grey between the lines

And you had best believe

That you cannot build what I don’t need

And I know I need to feel relief

And I know you’ll never fold

But I believe nothing that I’m told

And I know I need to feel relief

I know I need to feel released

Take care to tell it just as it was

Take care to tell on me for the cause

I know I need to feel released

Take care to bury all that you can

Take care to leave a trace of a man

I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know

I know I need to feel released

Take care to tell it just as it was

Take care to tell on me for the cause

I know I need to feel released

Take care to bury all that you can

Take care to leave a trace of a man

I know, I know, I know, I know

I know, I know, I know, I know

Chvrches Clearest Blue

Light is all over us

Like it always was

Like it always was

Shaped by the clearest blue

But it’s not enough

It’s not enough, not enough

Just another time I’m caught inside every open eye

Holding on tightly to the sides, never quite learning why

You’ll meet me, you’ll meet me

You’ll meet me halfway

Whenever I feel it coming on, you can be well aware

If ever I try to push away, you can just keep me there

So please say you’ll meet me

Meet me halfway

Tied to the shifting ground

Like it always was

Like it always was

You were the perfect storm

But it’s not enough

It’s not enough, not enough, not enough

Just another time that I go down, but you are keeping up

Holding to a hope you’ll undermine, never to be reversed

Just another time I’m caught inside every open eye

Holding on tightly to the sides, never quite learning why

Whenever I feel it coming on, you can be well aware

If ever I try to push away, you can just keep me, tell me

Tell me tell me, you’ll meet me

Tell me tell me, you’ll keep me

Tell me tell me, you’ll meet me

Will you meet me more than halfway up?

Shaped by clearest blue

Shaped by clearest blue

Shaped

(Will you keep it, half-a-way)

By clearest blue

(Will you keep it, half-a-way)

Shaped

(Will you keep it, half-a-way)

By clearest blue

(Will you keep it, half-a-way)

Chvrches Down Side Of Me

Maybe I

Tell you that it’s no big deal

Maybe I can aim this high

Or maybe I could eat my words

You’re not same, not the same, you’re not the same

Not the same, you’re not the same, not the same

You’re not same, not the same

I believe, I believe

And tell myself to think forward

I will show I believe

And hold you up and know that you’re all I see in the light

And never do what I used to

Maybe you

Could tell ’em that you stayed the course

Maybe I could tear my view

Or maybe I should eat my words

You’re not same, not the same, you’re not the same

Not the same, you’re not the same, not the same

You’re not same, not the same

I believe, I believe

And tell myself to think forward

I will show I believe

And hold you up and know that you’re all I see in the light

And never do what I used to

And never do what I used to

Keep you away from the down side of me

You can keep me a drip of the light that you see

I believe that you’re all that you said you would be

If I keep you away from the down side of me

(Only if you could see)

You can keep me a drip of the light that you see

(Only if I could see)

I believe that you’re all that you said you would be

(Only if you could see)

If I keep you away from the down side of me

(Only if I could see)

You can keep me a drip of the light that you see

(Only if I could see)

I believe that you’re all that you said you would be

(Only if I could see)

[x3]

You would be

You would be

You would be

I believe, I believe

And tell myself to think forward

I will show I believe

And hold you up and know that you’re all I see in the light

All I see

I believe, I believe

And tell myself to think forward

I will show I believe

And hold you up and know that you’re all I see in the light

And never do what I used to

And never do what I used to

Chvrches Night Sky

[Verse 1:]

I will carry you and give you life

I will cover you and show you the way

It’s a sequence that you never learned

It’s a lesson I will never forget

I can hear you in the overtones

Just an echo of the promise we made

Change the future, we can travel time

Or make us blind so we can never look back

We can never look back

[Hook:]

I’m the night-sky

I’m the fire in your eyes

And I want you

Now and for all time

I’m the cold heart

I’m the secret that you hide

I’ll be listening until you decide

[Verse 2:]

I communicate in simple strings (take your time)

I’m the only one who gave you the truth (speak to me)

Once you leave me you were really gone (far and near)

Give me something to remember you by (always be)

All that’s here is what you left behind (majesty)

Slowly moving in the back of my mind (can’t forget)

Take a moment to remember me (and our ways)

Make me blind so I don’t ever look back

Only in your name

I will ne’er be free

[Hook x2]

Chvrches Never Ending Circles

Throw me

No more bones and I will tell you no lies

This time

At least I am not so cold

You give me everything I never deserved

This time

You know I’ll leave

Here’s to taking what you came for

And here’s to running off the pain

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

Here’s to never ending circles

And building them on top of me

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

Cut off

I’ll go my way if I’m going at all

This time

Believe that the strong red lines

That I will draw will come and cover you up

This time

You know I’ll leave

Here’s to taking what you came for

And here’s to running off the pain

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

Here’s to never ending circles

And building them on top of me

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

We are losing ground

It’s time to save your neck

And I will try to find my feet and go

I am braced for words that never come

But I choose to decide that

I don’t regret it

I don’t regret it

Here’s to taking what you came for

And here’s to running off the pain

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

Here’s to never ending circles

And building them on top of me

And here’s to just another no man

If you want another

Say you need another

Chvrches Under The Tide

[Verse 1:]

I’m watching you run

Run from the sidelines

Take in a breath

Fill in your lungs

Keeping you alive

No fear

I’ll your eyes

I’ll be a lifeline

And if I can be

I’ll be your strength

And it won’t be long now

[Chorus:]

Head up, head up

Keep holding, holding

Your head up, head up

Keep holding, holding

[Verse 2:]

If you can see

And you believe

Why are you so scared

But if you don’t care

Then why are we here

And what do you have left

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]

Don’t you take another step

Away from here

I would go anywhere with you

What a lie

I’ll break down

But you will never see

Tell me, are you happy?

Are you really happy?

Stay under the tide

Stay in my eyeline

Looking ahead, there is a chance

Wherever it all ends

[Chorus:]

Head up, head up

And stay strong

Holding your head up, head up

Keep holding, holding

Chvrches Recover

Caught out cold

Hiding from you in a skin so old

I’ll come clean

Everyone, everyone knows it’s me

And if I recover

Will you be my comfort

Or it can be over

Or we can just leave it here

So pick any number

Choose any color

I’ve got the answer

Open the envelope

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change or part ways

And you take what you need

And you don’t need me

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change our old ways

And you take what you need

And you know you don’t need me

Blow by blow

Honest in every way I know

You appear

To face the decision I know you fear

And if I recover

Will you be my comfort

Or it can be over

Or we can just leave it here

So pick any number

Choose any color

I’ve got the answer

Open the envelope

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change or part ways

And you take what you need

And you don’t need me

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change our old ways

And you take what you need

And you know you don’t need me

And you know you don’t need me

And you know you don’t need me

And if I recover

Will you be my comfort

Or it can be over

Or we can just leave it here

So pick any number

Choose any color

I’ve got the answer

Open the envelope

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change or part ways

And you take what you need

And you don’t need me

I’ll give you one more chance to say

We can change our old ways

And you take what you need

And you know you don’t need me

Chvrches It’s Not Right But It’s Okay

Friday night

You and your boys went out to eat

Then they hung out

But you came home around three

Now if six of ya’ll went out

Then four of you were really cheap

’cause only two of you had dinner

I found your credit card receipt

It’s not right, but it’s okay

I’m gonna make it anyway

Pack your bags up and leave

Don’t you dare come running back to me

It’s not right, but it’s okay

I’m gonna make it anyway

Close the door behind you, leave your keys

I’d rather be alone than unhappy

I’m packing bags so you can leave town for a week, yes I am

The phone rings then you look at me

Why’d you turn and look at me?

You said it was one of your friends

Down on 54th street

So why did 213 show up on your caller ID?

I’ve been through all this before

Don’t think about it, don’t think about it

Get gone, get gone

Things are gonna change, baby

You don’t stand a chance, boy

You don’t stand a chance

Don’t you turn around

There’s no more tears left here for you to see

Was it really worth you going out like that?

See, I’m moving on

And I refuse to turn back

See, all of this time

I thought I had somebody down for with me

It turns out

You were making a fool of me

It’s not right, but it’s okay

I’m gonna make it anyway

Pack your bags up and leave

Don’t you dare come running back to me

It’s not right, but it’s okay

I’m gonna make it anyway

Close the door behind you, leave your keys

I’d rather be alone than unhappy

Chvrches Broken Bones

Catch them and kill them

Your only hope is evil

I will not die, I will keep quiet

I will hold you high above

You’re on your own

Wait till dawn and then go

No help here from heaven

You’re not as real as I am

I will wake up the dark eyes

Until your blood is out

You’re on your own

I’m lying here

Inside your sleep

Keep yourself

Awake for this

Wait till dawn and then go

Our love will never die

Broken bones and promises

Your weakness is clear now

I see your kind eyes

You’re on your own

Wait till dawn and then go

You are another one

Buried here by no one

I will keep you inside with your soul alive

You’re on your own

Keep your head beneath your hands

Play your part

All on your own

Closed and bruised

You’re on your own
