New Empire Fallen Soldiers

Pick me up slowly, so I won’t break down

Carry me quickly, with paper crows on our heads

You see I was a dreamer flown back to Earth

They said they needed me here

I’ve never needed you more

We are the fallen soldiers

We’re coming back from war

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

And we are the broken victors

We’re born of a broken home

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

It’s only to feel lost in a big old world

Jumping so highly to reach the doors that take you to

Different castles and different worlds

They said they needed me here

I’ve never needed you more

We are the fallen soldiers

We’re coming back from war

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

And we are the broken victors

We’re born of a broken home

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

Where will this fighting lead us to?

You are the only teacher

To give me a second chance

Oh can we live forever?

Only to live forever

We are the fallen soldiers

We’re coming back from war

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

And we are the broken victors

We’re born of a broken home

To silence the guns forever

Silence the guns forever

New Empire Tale Of Jonah

Take these promises and walk to the beaten shore

A strangers handshake as cold as the sea below

When I was given more than I could afford

I ran away

I ran away

And I once was king of the world

But now live inside of a whale

And I once was king of the world

Raging waters they will come when we least will know

A sleeping giant awakes as I look ashore

Can we erase the future, just let it swim overboard

‘Cause I ran away

I ran away

And I once was king of the world

But now live inside of a whale

And I thought I ran the world

And I’m lost without you

So wan we erase the future

Just let it swim overboard

If I was to die tomorrow

To live with more than I need

You’re coming with me

And I once was king of the world

But now live inside of a whale

And I thought I ran the world

And I’m lost without you

New Empire Ghosts

This conversation is moving faster than I thought it would

An indication, something I thought I’d lost long ago

It’s just like learning to swim; I’ve fallen in the deeper end, again

So would you chase me in, or for you is it pretend?

Cause I don’t want to feel without you, so tell me you believe in this too

Hide with all the ghosts in your bedroom, they will keep you awake

We can escape, escape

We can escape

This conversation is moving faster than I thought it could

I’m chasing shadows as they surround you in this empty room

It’s just like running a maze; you never know what you can find, tonight

But as we’re here now, everything in me wants to try

We could chase this feeling

But I just want you

Cause I don’t want to feel without you, so tell me you believe in this too

Hide with all the ghosts in your bedroom, they will keep you awake

We can escape, escape

We can escape, escape

When I was younger I would dream of this moment, and how I thought it would never come

Now we’re older I will dream of this moment, the city puts a ghost in us

We could chase this feeling

But I just want you

Cause I don’t want to feel without you, so tell me you believe in this too

Hide with all the ghosts in your bedroom; they will keep you awake…

We can escape, escape

We can escape, escape

When I was younger I would dream of this moment, and how I thought it would never come

Now we’re older I will dream of this moment, the city puts a ghost in us

We can escape

New Empire Outshine The Brightest

Mind if I take a seat here next to you?

Tell me a story one or two

About the way things used to be

‘Cause I can see all the colour in your eyes

As I watch the history passing by

Yeah it’s written in your smile

We could walk into the night

And all these lights

Wouldn’t outshine who you are

We could dance into the night

And all these lights

Couldn’t outshine who you are

Mind if I take a step back from the war?

Take all our guns down

Just to see what side I’ve been fighting for

Do you remember when we had simple things?

And we only needed this

To be here where you are

We could walk into the night

And all these lights

Wouldn’t outshine who you are

We could dance into the night

And all these lights

Couldn’t outshine who you are

We could walk into the night

And all these lights

Wouldn’t outshine who you are

We could dance into the night

And all these lights

Couldn’t outshine who you are

Mind if I take a seat here next to you?

Tell me a story, one or two

About the way things used to be

I don’t ever wanna hear you

Say goodnight

I don’t ever wanna hear it’s over

I don’t ever wanna see you

Wave goodbye

New Empire Tightrope

27 days since we’ve spoken

I think of all the ways that you might have tried

Then I realize, it’s good to be wrong sometimes

Found another crack in my ceiling

I took another glance and it disappeared

Fear can be bold, but courage takes it all

You could have lied to me (everything’s alright)

And would you lie to me, (just to change your mind)

Cause in a heartbeat you open up my eyes

The hardest part is giving up

You can find me here at the circus

I walk another tightrope to watch me fall

Then I realize, it’s good to be wrong

You could have lied to me (everything’s alright)

And would you lie to me, (just to change your mind)

Cause in a heartbeat you open up my eyes

The hardest part is giving up

Keeping your balance is easy

When you are sure of the promise

That you’ll never fall

You could have lied to me (everything’s alright)

And would you lie to me, (just to change your mind)

Cause in a heartbeat you open up my eyes

The hardest part is giving up

You could have lied to me (everything’s alright)

You wouldn’t lie to me, (just to change your mind)

Cause in a heartbeat you open up my eyes

I guess I won’t be giving up

New Empire A Little Braver

With December comes the glimmer on her face

And I get a bit nervous

I get a bit nervous now

In the twelve months on I won’t make friends with change

When everyone’s perfect

Can we start over again?

The playgrounds, they get rusty and your

Heart beats another ten thousand times before

I got the chance to say

I miss you

When it gets hard

I get a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

And when it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser now

Before I give my heart away

Well we met each other at the house of runaways

I remember it perfectly, we were running on honesty

We moved together like a silver lock and key

But now that your lock has changed

I know I can’t fit that way

The playgrounds, they get rusty and your

Heart beats another ten thousand times before

I got the chance to say

I want you

When it gets hard

I get a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

And when it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser now

Before I give my heart away

When it gets hard

I get a little stronger now

I get a little braver now

And when it gets dark

I get a little brighter now

I get a little wiser now

Before I give my heart away

New Empire Staircase

Late at night it’s kind of early for making promises

But I’ll try to keep them all

So when it’s hard and when it’s easier

And when it’s adventurous

I just need to know you know

You know

I was standing at the staircase

Staring into space I thought I had it all

Just try to do it your way

You’ll make a lot of friends

You’ll make a lot of foes

On your own it can be easier to do things for a while

But these traps don’t catch their own

So with all this distraction

And with all of my empty words

I will give you all of my soldier’s hearts

I was standing at the staircase

Staring into space I thought I had it all

Just try to do it your way

You’ll make a lot of friends

You’ll make a lot of foes

Standing at the staircase

Staring into space I thought I had it

So I’ll climb a little higher

And I’ll reach a little closer to you

I’ll step a little higher

Cause you said it’s not over

I was standing at the staircase

Staring into space I thought I had it all

Just try to do it your way

You’ll make a lot of friends

You’ll make a lot of foes

Now I’m standing at the staircase

Staring into space I thought I had it all

Just try to do it your way

I’ve made a lot of friends

I’ve made a lot of foes

New Empire Imagination

Simply put I like all the simple things

But I get caught up in my imagination

It’s a big world where I can do anything

Be anyone without any hesitation

The streets are broke in the daylight

The Eiffel Tower in the evening

Now I notice this world isn’t all mine

I look out to

See you

Hear you

Know you

With you

Just you

Yes you

See you

Hear you

Could I fly away now?

Here we go

Take me far away

Here with you I’ll stay

Do they really need us back in the real world?

Just for one more day

Take me far away

Would they really miss us back in the real world?

So take your time working your way around

Get used to familiar surroundings

I’m not used to reading between the lines

When you want me to

See you

Hear you

Know you

With you

Just you

Yes you

See you

Hear you

Could I fly away with you?

Yeah

Take me far away

Here with you I’ll stay

Do they really need us back in the real world?

Just for one more day

Take me far away

Would they really miss us back in the real world?

Have we forgotten

What you were made for?

As you were dreaming

I watched you come alive

Have I forgotten

What I was made for?

Imagination is here to come alive

Yeah

So come alive [x3]

Take me far away

Here with you I’ll stay

Do they really need us back in the real world?

Just for one more day

Take me far away

Would they really miss us back in the real world?

New Empire Wise Fox

Walk along this grassy dirty little trail

The snow will surely soon begin to fall on us

And all your broken bones

The trees are made of gold

We surely wouldn’t sell the things we love

Se toll me why you’re chasing after things you shouldn’t know

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

So we sneak around to not

Awake the little creatures of the night

You know they may be dreaming of the things they’ve never owned

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

I said I’m sorry

I’ll say it again

I said I’m sorry

(I’ll say it again)

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

I could really teach you

I could really teach you all I know

I could really teach you

I could really show you all I know

All I know

New Empire Relight The Fire

I’ve lived, I’ve breathed, I’ve stole

I’ve fallen on my knees

I fought the cold

In capturing the seasons

I’ve lost between the amber leaves

I’ve hurt, I’ve lied, I’ve cursed

I’m laughing till I cry

The ones we hurt

The most I hold the closest

And I just don’t know why

So can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

Can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

I dream, I run, I wait

I’m crossing out the days to begin again

I’ve fallen with a lover

And crashed the other side

I’m big, I’m weak, I’m tall

I’m learning what it means to fight for a cause

I don’t know who I can be

But I know who I was

So can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

Can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

So can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

(Oh whoa oh)

(I dream, I run, I wait)

(I’m crossing out the days to begin again)

So can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

Can you relight the fire?

(I’ve fallen with a lover)

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

(And crashed the other side)

So can you relight the fire?

(I’m big, I’m weak, I’m tall)

Relight the fire

(I’m learning what it means to fight for a cause)

(I don’t know who I can be)

Relight the fire

(But I know who I was)

Can you relight the fire?

Relight the fire

Relight the fire

(Oh whoa oh)
