Chvrches Do I Wanna Know?

Have you got colour in your cheeks?

Do you ever get that fear that you can’t shift

The type that sticks around like something in your teeth?

And some aces up your sleeve?

I’ve no idea that you’re in deep?

I dreamt about you nearly every night this week

How many secrets can you keep?

‘Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow

And I play it on repeat

Until I fall asleep

Spilling drinks on my settee

(Do I wanna know?)

If this feeling flows both ways?

(Sad to see you go)

Was sort of hoping that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)

That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day

Crawlin’ back to you

Ever thought of calling when you’ve had a few?

‘Cause I always do

Maybe I’m too

Busy being yours to fall for somebody new

Now I’ve thought it through

So have you got the guts?

Been wondering if your heart’s still open

And if so I wanna know what time it shuts

Simmer down and pucker up

I’m sorry to interrupt

It’s just I’m constantly on the cusp

Of trying

To kiss you

And I don’t know

If you feel the same as I do

But we could be together

If you wanted to

(Do I wanna know?)

If this feeling flows both ways?

(Sad to see you go)

Was sort of hoping that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)

That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day

Crawlin’ back to you

Ever thought of calling when you’ve had a few?

‘Cause I always do

Maybe I’m too busy being yours to fall for somebody new

Now I’ve thought it through

(Do I wanna know?)

If this feeling flows both ways?

(Sad to see you go)

Was sort of hoping that you’d stay

(Baby, we both know)

That the nights were mainly made for saying things that you can’t say tomorrow day

(Do I wanna know?)

Too busy being yours to fall

(Sad to see it go)

Ever thought of calling, darling?

(I’m thinkin’ we both know)

Do you want me crawling back to you?

Chvrches We Sink

We are

I’ve come apart and you made me

Float like

A pretty box of your evil

So tired

So easy I

Bleed out

What the fuck were you thinking

We are

Gonna fall if you lead us

Nowhere

No wasted time

[Chorus 2x:]

I’ll be a thorn in your side

‘Til you die

I’ll be a thorn in your side

For always

If we sink

We lift our love

We are

Let me stop for a second

Held heart

Only beats in the evening

Low tide

Watching for flight

I tell you

To cut it out if you made me

You know why

The slowest spark is a breather

How high

How will you decide

[Chorus 2x]

So low

You keep stalling

Can you not see why

Say, say, say

Love was

Say, say, say

That you see cry

Say, say, say

A simple call seems right

Say, say, say

And I know why

[Chorus 2x]

Get up after you

Get up after you

Chvrches Lies

Faster, faster, you won’t go far

Shouldn’t leave, feeling faith, we both know why

You got to show me, both knees, cold I lie

Hold me slowly, hide me ’til I can fly

Always we can sing, we can make time

Old songs, flood and flame, you could be mine

But you got to show me, both knees, skin and bone

Clothe me, throw me, move me ’til…

[Chorus:]

I can sell you lies

You can’t get enough

Make a true believer of anyone, anyone, anyone

I can call you up if I feel alone

I can feed your dirty mind

Like I know, like I know what you want

Icon of symmetry, swallowing sides

Fall down in front of me, follow my eyes

But I’ve got to see you moving, waste no time

Teach me, make me holy ’til…

[Chorus:]

I can sell you lies

You can’t get enough

Make a true believer of anyone, anyone, anyone

I can call you up if I feel alone

I can feed your dirty mind

Like I know, like I know, what you want

Anyone, anyone, anyone

Anyone, anyone, anyone

Like I know, like I know, what you want

Like I know, like I know, what you want

[Chorus:]

I can sell you lies

You can’t get enough

Make a true believer of anyone, anyone, anyone

I can call you up if I feel alone

I can feed your dirty mind

Like I know, like I know, what you want

Chvrches Lungs

How long till you leave it?

You should know that we’re alone this time

Keep yourself a secret, you should know that

I will sell you a future you don’t want

Like I did last time

I won’t go slow

All the things you tell yourself

Offer no resolution

You know that this will break us

But you push as far as we can go

Taking every chance to find solutions

That never make anyone happy

We are done this time

You don’t owe me

Take a final look at me

Take it, and drink it in

Breathe through me

Fill up your lungs with us

I will keep everything

You give me

Till the time

We let go

Breathe through me

Fill up your lungs with us

I will keep everything

You give me

Till the time

We let go

Keep me in your eyeline

Keep believing what you said before

I will change direction

I will tell you that everything’s moving too slowly

Just another lie, one more untruth

You won’t ever see through me

You will still drink it in

Breathe through me

Fill up your lungs with us

I will keep everything

You give me

Till the time

We let go

You know that this will break us

But you push as far as we can go

Taking every chance to find solutions

That never make anyone happy

We are done this time

You don’t owe me

Take a final look at me

Take it

Chvrches Warning Call

I hear it

Echoing of every place that we’ve called our home

And I don’t talk

Of any time I ever believed in the unknown

I need it

So I hold on to every mistake that I made alone

And I don’t lie

When I say that we will never return to closing doors

Sleep tight in a new light

Through another warning call

Look down on the cold ground

No one try to break the fall

I feel it

Moving in an another direction we call our own

And I won’t chase

Anyone who ever believed in what they stole

I need it

So I hold on to every piece of mine that I chose

And I don’t lie

When I say that we will never return to closing doors

Sleep tight in a new light

Through another warning call

Look down on the cold ground

No one try to break the fall

Say you’ll remember

To keep it all inside

You can run for the skyline

Your eyes open wide

Say you’ll remember

To keep it all inside

You can run for the skyline

Your eyes open wide

(It’s a memory)

Don’t look away

(It’s a memory)

Cause when we see it we are closer

Don’t look away

Cause when we see it we are near

Say you’ll remember

To keep it all inside

You can run for the skyline

Your eyes open wide

Say you’ll remember

To keep it all inside

You can run for the skyline

Your eyes open wide

It’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory

It’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory

It’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory

It’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory, it’s a memory

Chvrches You Caught The Light

[Verse 1:]

I hear you when you call

There’s a sign for her and everyone

And go on, but not with me

And let it all fall down

Let it all fall down

[Chorus:]

Sky is light

You caught the light

You carried mine

You caught the light

[Verse 2:]

They said that you would call

And take it all, it’s history

And we’re laughing until the end

Let the rain come down

Let it all come down

[Chorus x2:]

Sky is light

You caught the light

You carried mine

You caught the light

Chvrches ZVVL

[Verse 1:]

So, I think it’s time

To face yourself again

It’s not too late

There’s always time

To steal yourself

What are you looking for

We both are free

In the here and now

So take my hand

And don’t fear what you find

On your own

Open up, give it up

[Chorus:]

Your life will be brighter

Your days will be longer

But come on, you feel it

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

It’s only illusion

A miracle darling

Give it to the knowing

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

[Verse 2:]

Truth, it’s just as real

As your dream at night

So far away

It’s all around

Forget yourself

Cast a sacred grain

We start today

Open up, give it up, go

[Chorus:]

Your life will be brighter

Your days will be longer

But come on, you feel it

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

It’s only illusion

A miracle darling

Give it to the knowing

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

Your life will be brighter

Your days will be longer

But come on, you feel it

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

It’s only illusion

A miracle darling

Give it to the knowing

Of flesh and blood, give it up, go

Chvrches Make Them Gold

Can you tell me what to have and what to hold

If you never take the weight on your own

No one tells us what is hard and what is fair

And we will deliver once we know where to fall

We are made of our longest days

We are falling but not alone

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

We are made of our smallest thoughts

We are breathing and letting go

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

Can you steady all the hands that you hold

If you never look away from the drum

If you push yourself then I will pull you on

And we will deliver once we know where to fall

We are made of our longest days

We are falling but not alone

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

We are made of our smallest thoughts

We are breathing and letting go

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

I will wait to see if you come at all

To stop us falling out of phase

Let’s see if we can keep track of losing days

You smile so wide I can see the signs

Just stop us falling out of phase

I will be with you in the fray

With those second thoughts you asked for

All you asked for

We are made of our longest days

We are falling but not alone

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

We are made of our smallest thoughts

We are breathing and letting go

We will take the best parts of ourselves

And make them gold

And make them gold

Chvrches Bury It

Cover up, cover up, cover up that you’re ruthless

Nobody, nobody, nobody’s ever gonna notice

And I am catchin’ up and I am seein’ red

How about I prove I’m right and raise it overhead?

I never promised you anything I couldn’t do

We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently

Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

Reaching, reaching for, reaching for my resistance

Nobody, nobody, nobody sees it at a distance

And I am catchin’ up and I am seein’ red

How about I throw my weight and raise it overhead?

I never promised you anything I couldn’t do

We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently

Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

I never promised you anything I couldn’t do

We tried to bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you, you never promised me you were seeing differently

Bury it and rise above, bury it and rise above

You, you

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above

You bury it, bury it, bury it and rise above
