lyrics

Give me warmth, give me voice
It's not right to weave a world around your choice
Give me air, lend me lungs
You burn bright despite my dark concerns, my dark opinions
Fire runs underfoot
Into veins it takes root
And all at once you shine

So let me fight when you see red
I'll be your sword as you are my castle walls
And we were running with the blackbirds don't forget
Water through your hands you couldn't get
Hunting it with animals
All you spoke of were the lions in your heart
They only served to tear your house apart
Hunt you down with iron claws

The world's outside but you stay in
A good choice in war but that's not quite the world we're living in
Fire runs underfoot
Into veins it takes root
And all at once you shine

So let me fight when you see red
I'll be your sword as you are my castle walls
And we were running with the blackbirds don't forget
Water through your hands you couldn't get
Hunting it with animals
All you spoke of were the lions in your heart
They only served to tear your house apart
Hunt you down with iron claws

The dark from where we both have come
Is the same as when our lives are done
There's nothing fearing the light o' day
No matter what you think or say
There's nothing all around, but inside we're bursting

So let me fight when you see red
I'll be your sword as you are my castle walls
And we were running with the blackbirds don't forget
Water through your hands you couldn't get
Hunting it with animals
All you spoke of were the lions in your heart
They only served to tear your house apart
Hunt you down with iron claws

And as the snow fell down the fire flicked up
And you held out your golden cup
To catch a bit of magic

So let me fight when you see red
I'll be your sword as you are my castle walls
And we were running with the blackbirds don't forget
Water through your hands you couldn't get
Hunting it with animals
