Lights Cactus In The Valley

I never meant to wither

I wanted to be tall

Like a fool left the river

And watched my branches fall

Old and thirsty, I longed for the flood

To come back around

To the cactus in the valley

That’s about to crumble down

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face

Show me that your love will never change

If my yesterday is a disgrace

Tell me that you still recall my name

So, the storm finally found me

And left me in the dark

In the cloud around me

I don’t know where you are

If this whole world goes up in arms

All I can do is stand

And I won’t fight for anyone

Until you move my hand

And wipe the mark of madness from my face

Show me that your love will never change

If my yesterday is a disgrace

Tell me that you still recall my name

Oh, here

In the shadow

Here I am

And I need someone by my side

It becomes so

Hard to stand

And I keep trying to dry my eyes

Come and find me

In the valley

And wipe the mark of sadness from my face

Show me that your love will never change

If my yesterday is a disgrace

Tell me that you still recall my name

Wipe the mark of madness from my face

Show me that your love will never change

If my yesterday is a disgrace

Tell me that you still recall my name

Woo ooh

Tell me that you still recall my name, no

Tell me that you still recall my name, mm mm

Lights Muscle Memory

After having spent the fast year

Waiting for the next time I can get you close

I grew used to being back here

Like a chorus and rhyme, soldier at his post

You call and I respond, the sparrow and the song

I miss you when you’re gone

When I am alone, I see you in the dark

I talk into the empty like you were with me

Started on a cold night, felt you in the low light

Noticing a reflex taking over me

I see you when I reach

Muscle memory

Again, off into the next fall

I am on the back steps trying to let you in

See you standing in the front hall

Maybe this is madness underneath my skin

Guess love is the response of the body it haunts

And we do what it wants

When I am alone, I see you in the dark

I talk into the empty like you were with me

Started on a cold night, felt you in the low light

Noticing a reflex taking over me

I see you when I reach

Muscle memory

I feel you endlessly

Muscle memory

When you feel the chains of a thousand words

And I speak your name like I know you heard

I can feel you there, I can hear you move

And it moves me, too

And I’m playing games and I’m drinking wine

And I see your glass sitting next to mine

I can feel you there when you’re not at home

Like I’m not alone

When I am alone, I see you in the dark

I talk into the empty like you were with me

Started on a cold night, felt you in the low light

Noticing a reflex taking over me

I see you when I reach

Muscle memory

I feel you endlessly

Muscle memory

Lights Meteorites

Perseids lead us up to where the money is

Where kings had lived

Both of us are leaving town when we get old enough

We’re moving up

We are gonna see greater heights

They’ll put our names up in neon lights

Rolling volcanoes in the night

Glowing in the dark like meteorites

We’re volcanoes in the night

We’re rolling like meteorites

Mamma said, “They haven’t even seen nothing yet

Don’t you forget

Lately you’ve been breathing fire in your sleep

I feel the heat.”

We are gonna see greater heights

They’ll put our names up in neon lights

Rolling volcanoes in the night

Glowing in the dark like meteorites

We’re volcanoes in the night

We’re rolling like meteorites

The greatest sights that I’ve ever seen

Anime eyes and big limousines

And maybe we sound young and naive

And maybe we just want to believe

We’re volcanoes in the night

We’re rolling like meteorites

We are gonna see greater heights

They’ll put our names up in neon lights

Rolling volcanoes in the night

Glowing in the dark like meteorites

We’re volcanoes in the night

We’re rolling like meteorites

We are gonna see greater heights

They’ll put our names up in neon lights

Rolling volcanoes in the night

Glowing in the dark like meteorites

We’re volcanoes in the night

We’re rolling like meteorites

Lights Skydiving

It all starts here

With a rush of blood to the head

And I feel no fear

And nothing’s happening yet

You pull me in

I’m doing things I never would do

My pulse racing

I’m coming alive with you

Free fall with me

Get a little unruly

No guts no glory

You said to me

“Get a little unruly

No guts no glory”

You got me

Skydiving

You got me

High flying

Oh, I’m jumping off of the world now

I’ll never stop, never slow down

Skydiving

I take the leap

Without a parachute

Cause I can’t keep

My hands away from you

And I’m all in

It’s too late to turn around

Adrenaline is taking my body now

Free fall with me

Get a little unruly

No guts no glory

You got me

Skydiving

You got me

High flying

Oh, I’m jumping off of the world now

I’ll never stop, never slow down

Skydiving

I’m going down, down, down, down

I’m going down, down, down, down

I’m going down, down, down, down

I’m going

Skydiving

You’re leaving a mark on me

Diving into me so slowly

Always making it so easy to convince me

Boy you’re leaving a mark on me

Diving into me so slowly

Always making it so easy to convince me

You got me

Skydiving

You got me

High flying

I’m jumping off the world now

I’ll never stop, never slow down

Skydiving

I’m going down, down, down, down

(Skydiving)

I’m going down, down, down, down

(You got me skydiving)

I’m going down, down, down, down

(You got me high flying)

I’m going

(You got me)

Skydiving

I’m going down

Lights Lions!

Give me a disaster,

Give me emergency,

Stand me at the head of the crusades without a remedy.

Show me to the shipwreck,

show me how your bones shake,

And when I’m at the edge of sorrow’s blade,

show me how a heart breaks.

Be steady on your feet,

No matter the trouble you meet

Lions make you brave,

Giants give you faith,

Death is a charade.

You don’t have to feel safe to feel unafraid.

Find me at the bottom,

looking at the vultures.

Standing in the heart of the disease,

following the hard curves.

I’m looking for the thunder,

I’m looking for the blackness.

I’m learning how to get up off my knees,

and all it takes is practice.

Be ready on your feet,

No matter what trouble you meet.

Lions make you brave,

Giants give you faith,

Death is a charade.

You don’t have to feel safe to feel unafraid.

I’m not the hunter,

I’m not the marked.

Just looking for wisdom in the dark

Lions make you brave,

Giants give you faith,

Death is a charade.

You don’t have to feel safe to feel unafraid. [x2]

You don’t have to feel safe to feel unafraid.

Lights Magnetic Field

Walk with me though the boneyard

I know you like to play hard, you know I’m easy to convince

How you move through the spaces and can get so persuasive

I haven’t been home since

Cause this full metal alchemy

Just brings up out the best in me

Each time

And all these sacred memories

That sing to me your mine

You just keep me coming back

Something bout our opposites attract

You hold me down

I’m in it for real

Love me, leave me, high and dry

I’m back in your arms and I don’t know why

I can’t get around your magnetic field

Don’t know if I believe you

And when I try to leave you

I can’t turn around

Cause I can’t keep my eyes away

The chemistry begs me to stay each time

And all these sacred melodies

That summon me, oh my

You just keep me coming back

Something bout our opposites attract

You hold me down

I’m in it forreal

Love me, leave me, high and dry

I’m back in your arms and I don’t know why

I can’t get around your magnetic field

If I leave I believe I could never settle

Cause I’m drawn to your core like a precious metal

And you balance me out

If I leave I believe I could never settle

Cause I’m drawn to your core like a precious metal

And you balance me out

And I can’t live without

Just keep me coming back

Something about our opposites attract

You hold me down

I’m in it for real

Love me, leave me, high and dry

I’m back in your arms and I don’t know why

I can’t get around your magnetic field

You just keep me coming back

Something bout our opposites attract

You hold me down

I’m in it forreal

Love me, leave me, high and dry

I’m back in your arms and I don’t know why

I can’t get around your magnetic field

Lights And Counting…

Forty days and counting

I’m going to sleep when

I wake up there will be

Thirty nine more days left

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

Until I fall asleep and you are with me

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Thirty days and counting

I’m going to sleep when

I wake up there will be

Twenty nine more days left

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

Until I fall asleep and you are with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

When I fall asleep I feel you with me

Until I fall asleep and you are with me

Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh.

Lights Everybody Breaks A Glass

It’s not a solid, not a soft thing

To pull the wool up like a smoke screen

Nobody does it like a prophet

It’s gone before you know you lost it

There are reasons you keep your hands tied

There’s certain things you shouldn’t have tried

So if you gotta tell me something

You better go from the beginning

We all forget to sleep

And crash at someone’s feet

Everybody skips a beat

We let the chances pass

The few we held so fast

Everybody breaks a glass

And here I’m standing in the middle

Not just a little but a hill-full

Wondering how I got a head cold

Wishing I didn’t know what I know

It’s never been about the money

We’re worthy or we are not worthy

However much you’ve got on your plate

You’re as good as you reciprocate

We all pretend to keep

Our tongue out of our cheek

Everyone’s the fool they seek

We all go off the track

And feel for our way back

Everybody breaks a glass

Everybody breaks a glass

(Yeah, Shook)

Scared to look at peers when they peer back

It’s weird how we fear that

It’s weird how we wear masks

It appears that we fear our own tears more than tear gas

My team’s struggling in years past

Looking to draft beer to bring cheers back

But then the drinking game’s finished

No Guinness, just a clear glass

Seeing our real image mirrored back

The places that we go to cope, it’s so strange

When we’re older folks, it don’t change

Trying to hang, we don’t know the ropes

When we fall, we got more than our shoulders broke

It’s no game

It’s why we overdose on cocaine

Get our brains comatose, there’s no blame

If you’ve ever know shame, known pain

Known days when it really don’t feel OK

(Uh, okay)

Somewhere perfection lies

But not for you and I

Everybody trips sometimes

When cities fall like shacks

Walls eventually crack

Everybody breaks a glass

Lights Lost!

Just because I’m losing

Doesn’t mean I’m lost

Doesn’t mean I’ll stop

Doesn’t mean I would cross

Just because I’m hurting

Doesn’t mean I’m hurt

Doesn’t mean I didn’t get

What I deserved

No better and no worse

I just got lost

Every river that I tried to cross

Every door I ever tried was locked

Ohhh and I’m…

Just waiting ’til the shine wears off

You might be a big fish

In a little pond

Doesn’t mean you’ve won

‘Cause a long may come

A bigger one

And you’ll be lost

Every river that you tried to cross

Every gun you ever held went off

Ohhh and I’m…

Just waiting until the firing stopped

Ohhh and I’m…

Just waiting ’til the shine wears off

Ohhh and I…

Just waiting ’til the shine wears off

Ohhh and I..

Just waiting ’til the shine wears off

Lights Jess & Jonny

The car will get us there so you don’t have to wait

We’ll drive not walk cause I know that you hate the city when it rains

But it does it all the time so it don’t give any time

I love your face your hair regardless of your mood

We learn to talk it over until it’s smooth

It really makes you brave but I do it all the time

I love you cause you’re mine, so talk to me

Jonny loves Jess

There are a couple things we don’t always agree on

What to watch or what we’re gonna eat

But I’m willing to change for the sake of me and you

‘Cause I know you’re changing too

I try to think of how my life would be without you

I would feel so unhappy ’cause you balance me out

You’re the minus to my plus when it’s just the two of us

So talk to me and made feel fine I hope you can

All the time

Love me even if I’m a mess, take me as I am, bad or best

Forgive me if I’m ever on my knee, kiss me if you’re mad at mommy

Love me if I’m a mess, take me as I am bad or best

Forgive me if I’m ever on my knee, kiss me if you’re mad at mommy

Jess loves Jonny

Forgive me if I’m ever on my knee

Kiss me if you’re mad at mommy, love me even if I’m a mess

Take me as I am bad or best, Jonny loves Jess
