Daniel Johns We Are Golden

Maybe you can understand

We don’t need to get away

Coz I had the Lion’s heart

Before you threw the keeper in

I would trade indifference

For a little tenderness

But I could change my mind

We could paint it black and white

Challenge what the devil thinks

Losing my religion’s hard

For it was never anything

Where the hell did you come from

Heaven’s where the heart lives

But you’re original

I don’t wanna lift

I just wanna exist

But I just keep on falling

Into your hands

We are golden

I don’t wanna lift

I just wanna exist

But I just keep on falling

Into your hands

We are golden

Yesterday I saw the change,

Fever comin’ over me

I can’t spend another day

I’m out of money anyway

Even if the curtains close

Doors will open everyday

Coz we’re original

I’ve been dreaming we could settle down

I crumble ’til my words sound right

Honest, honest, honest, honest, honest

I believe the things we talk about

Unravel til we’ve got it all

Honest, honest, honest, honest, honest

I’ve been dreaming we could settle down

I crumble ’til my words sound right

Honest, honest

I don’t wanna lift

I just wanna exist

But I just keep on falling

Into your hands

We are golden

Daniel Johns Cool On Fire

It was getting a little hard

Not to think about each other

It was getting a little cold

Trying to act like I never need no one

It was getting a little harder

Trying to keep it undercover

But I was feeling insecure

Trying to get your body close to mine

It’s getting a little hard

Not to talk to one another

But I’m sick of playing it cool

In the end everybody needs someone

It’s getting a little late

Wanna tell you something honest

When I’m feeling insecure

Wanna feel your body close to mine

I get higher

You keep getting better

And I’m trying

But I can’t see nothing else

‘Cause together

Nothing matters

We’re on fire

Cool on fire

I got no chance to keep my cool baby

I’m caught on fire

It was getting a little hard

Not to think about each other

It was getting a little cold

Trying to act like I never need no one

It was getting a little harder

Trying to keep it undercover

But I was feeling insecure

Trying to get your body close to mine

I get higher

You keep getting better

And I’m trying

But I can’t see nothing else

‘Cause together

Nothing matters

We’re on fire

Cool on fire

I got no chance to keep my cool baby

I’m caught on fire

We got a chance to rule the world baby

We’re cool on fire

I get higher

You keep getting better

And I’m trying

But I can’t see nothing else

‘Cause together

Nothing matters

We’re on fire

Cool on fire

We’re on fire

We’re on fire

Cool on fire

Daniel Johns Preach

I don’t care if it’s too late for this

I’m used to that

I don’t need an angel

I don’t care ten years early

I’m tentative then gone

I am a shadow

I drink too much

I need to find signs, time, let’s get around

I find it hard to breathe the truth

All things I think I breathe, you seep into my lungs

But I don’t want a broken heart

I admit I’m living just inside my home

But I don’t wanna live here no more

Now I dance to my own beat

I could only try

‘Cause I fall at my own feet

I’m tripping every time

I could run down the high street

But that would be a lie

Now I preach to the lonely

Woohooo

I don’t care, we fish for answers

Not too late for this

‘Cause we were never strangers

I felt everything was effortless unnatural

I’m more than just a creature

Now I dance to my own beat

I could only try

‘Cause I fall at my own feet

I’m tripping every time

I could run down the high street

But that would be a lie

Now I preach to the lonely

Woohooo

Now I dance to my own beat

I could only try

‘Cause I fall at my own feet

I’m tripping every time

I could run down the high street

But that would be a lie

Now I preach to the lonely

Woohooo

Daniel Johns Warm Hands

I wanna write you a letter

Cos you’ve been reading me all wrong

Sartin’ to feel a little better

But it’s taken way too long

Time keeps making lies of all we know

I don’t wanna have to wait

For the words to get off of my tongue

I just want to remember

And everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Knows, knows, knows, knows

Tryin’ to breathe underwater

We take the long way around

Runnin’ from border to border

Tyrin’ to understand what we have found

We’ve been runnin’ in circles

Can we move on

I don’t wanna have to wait

For the words to to get off of my tongue

I just want to remember

And everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Knows, knows, knows, knows

We find ourselves at home

When I finally get to know you

And everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Everybody knows

We float from coast to coast

Following the tide

Got a green light in the water

In the warm hands of the moon

We’ll find ourselves a home

When I finally get to know you.

Daniel Johns Surrender

Days like this will come to make us run

All the things I have to thank you for

Caught up in our minds, so can you come

Follow just we’ll find, a place for me

You

[Chorus:]

All, all that I be

All, all the [?]

All, all that death is

Surrender, surrender

Men like this will fall to save our souls

You can have it all, but no control

Put up in a town you gotta pull on something

All its been about, this is a gift from me, to

You

[Chorus]

You

Baby

Don’t hold back, don’t worry about it

Don’t call me back, just let the pain go

You

Baby

Don’t hold back, don’t worry about it

Don’t call me back, just let the pain go

You

Baby

Don’t hold back, don’t worry about it

Don’t call me back, just let the pain go

[Chorus x2]

Daniel Johns Going On 16

I saw you looking

You stole my eye

C’mon on over

Unravel you’re my sweet surprise

I’m going on 16

I’m going on 16

Come on

C’mon on over

Ignore the morning train

Your pretty lip stain

Reveals the band I split up

This city’s a liar

And I swear I’m 16 again

Coulda had a better teacher

To keep me in line

Coulda had a better teacher

To [?] me in line

My heart stopped beating

But I stole a choir

We’re at the punch line

And more lit up than ever

This city’s on fire

And I swear I’m 16 again

Coulda had a better teacher

To keep me in line

Coulda had a better teacher

To [?] me in line

I saw you looking

You stole my eyes

I see you walk in and get

Get my big surprise

I’m going on 16

Get my big surprise

To keep me in line

Coulda had a better teacher

To [?] me in line

I’m going on 16

C’mon

Daniel Johns Dissolve

I can’t remember, it was stranger than we thought, you dangerous boy

Now we don’t wanna feel cause we don’t wanna hurt anymore

Yeah, we walked, tried to talk in the soundbites, under soft light

And we don’t wanna feel cause we don’t wanna cry anymore

We are here in the water

Dissolve me, love, dissolve me

We are here with open arms

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

Now I’ve been thinking in a different state of mind

I understand why a million songs ’bout a million hearts played on

Cause we fought and we loved and we lived under starlight

Now I don’t wanna feel cause I don’t wanna cry anymore

Oh, now wait, baby, we were loaded

Oh, now wait, baby, we were giants

We are here in the water

Dissolve me, love, dissolve me

We are here with open arms

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

We are here in the water

Dissolve me, love, dissolve me

We are here with open arms

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

Oh, now wait, baby, we were loaded

Oh, now wait, baby, we were giants

We are here in the water

Dissolve me, love, dissolve me

We are here with open arms

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

We are here in the water

Dissolve me, love, dissolve me

We are here with open arms

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

Dissolve me, love, while it’s easy

Daniel Johns Sleepwalker

ooooo..

I really wanna tell you something,

I really wanna sing you something magical

It’s so hard to make a sacrifice,

On my knees.. sentimental

I just wanted to mention baby,

I didn’t wanna see you running,

with that broken heart

I just want to make it right for you baby..

Just wanna call love for me, oh oh

Just wanna go,

Just wanna call love for me, oh oh

Just wanna go,

Just wanna call love for me, oh oh

Just wanna go,

Just wanna call love for me, oh oh

We’ve been sleep walking

I’ve been sleep talking

I really believe it’s true

And I’m willing to believe in something

Just wanna comfort you

We’ve been sleep walking

I’ve been sleep talking

I really believe it’s true

And I’m willing to believe in something

Just wanna comfort you

We’ve been sleep walking

I’ve been sleep talking

I really believe it’s true

And I’m willing to believe in something

Just wanna comfort you

Daniel Johns New York

Monsters waltz on fragile shelves

Only the shallow truly know themselves

Do you really need all these faces?

When we can have fun in dangerous places

You see me, but you don’t know me

Drive steel pins through my heart

How will this one end and will it ever start?

Youth is so divine and such a waste

It goes on and on when all we need’s a taste

New York, New York

Don’t call me your lover

New York, New York

We are under cover

New York, New York

Been waiting for hours

New York, New York

Been sending no flowers

What doesn’t kill us just makes us stronger

We don’t need to hide any longer

What doesn’t kill us just makes us stronger

New York, New York

Don’t call me your lover

New York, New York

We are under cover

New York, New York

Been waiting for hours

New York, New York

Been sending no flowers

I’m comin’ my lover

I got this feelin’ inside of me

I’m comin’ my lover

I got this feelin’ inside of me

I got this feelin’ inside of me

I’m comin’ my lover

I got this feelin’ inside of me

I got this feelin’ inside of me

I’m comin’ my lover
