Stop The World

RISE


Lyrics

"STOP THE WORLD"

It’s getting harder not to think of you
You’re like a sinking ship, and my anchor found its way to your floor
It’s getting harder not to draw the line
I’m always on your side, but I can’t tell where that is anymore

I feel like I just put a band-aid on an amputation
And God, I hope that these are phantom pains
Go on, explain it all away

When you’re around, I stop the world from spinning
Ten suns and twenty moons could never match your pull
And when you’re down, I stop the world from ending
But this apocalypse is taking its toll
It’s taking its toll

It’s been a long climb up this flight of stares
All the eyes have serrated edges that cut right to my core
And every step feels like a backwards march
We’ve built a house of cards that collapses with each knock at the door

I feel like I’ve been using tears to save a burning building
And now I know we’re going down in flames
Tell me these scars are gonna fade

When you’re around, I stop the world from spinning
Ten suns and twenty moons could never match your pull
And when you’re down, I stop the world from ending
But this apocalypse is taking its toll
It’s taking its toll

I love you, but I just don’t know what to believe
I thought this family could find a way to begin again and
I love you harder when you bring me to my knees
But I think this family is just the means to an end, my friend
And I can’t stop this storm from taking you home
You’re gonna leave me with a permanent hole

When you’re around, I stop the world from spinning
Ten suns and twenty moons could never match your pull
And when you’re down, I stop the world from ending
But this apocalypse is taking its toll
It’s taking its toll

You’re gonna leave me with a permanent hole
