Breathe air, you're not used to
Tread floors, you don't fall through
Make waves, you crash a symbol hard
Follow no one, always play the wrong card

Waste days in foreign places
Shed lights on your better side
Reassure me that you'll wait for me
Wait for me as long as it takes
And I'll hold my breath, I'll hold my breath

Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A sky of diamonds just for us

You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears, we'll blow them all way
We'll blow them all way

Fight fires in your best clothes
Touch skin with your eyes closed
Chase thunder with the volume down
Pack a suitcase, wander to the next town

Force quit on your losing streak
Solve a riddle in a magazine, be tongue in cheek
Tell me that we're still too young
That we're still too young and I'll hold my tongue

Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A sky of diamonds just for us

You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears, we'll blow them all way
We'll blow them all way

I'm here, I'm here to take you
I'll swim, I'll swim to save you
No fall, I'm here to catch you
I'll swim, I will swim to save you

Until you see me in your dreams
We'll stay awake beneath the trees
We'll watch the buildings turn to dust
A sky of diamonds just for us

You are the risk I'll always take
The only branch I'll never break
Those fears, we'll blow them all way
We'll blow them all way
