Firelight Lyrics

by Jimmy Eat World

This is where our diligence has lead
The waves roll in to claim our patient steps
Can we become more than just ourselves?
And leave the sand, our want, our will, our doubt

It's firefight, I won't run.
They're spitting spite all through my blood
For you and me, there's nowhere left to hide
Except you and me, there's no one else alive

This is now the moment after next.
Are these still the eyes of the temptress
Why open the door if you won't go?
Don't ask twice if you don't wanna know.

It's firefight, I won't run.
They're spitting spite all in my blood
For you and me, there's nowhere left to hide
Except you and me, there's no one else alive

Is there an answer?
If it's an honest one, honestly worth this question
There's no question
The city has as witness
I am who I wanna be, but you could be anything
Just be anything here with me.
Love is quartz and breath is second-hand
If you let go then that's where time will stand.

It's firefight, I won't run.
They're spitting spite all through my blood
For you and me, there's nowhere left to hide
Except you and me, there's no one else alive

It's firefight, I won't run.
They're spitting spite all through my blood
For you and me, there's nowhere left to hide
Except you and me, there's no one else alive.
