So maybe you're standing
In some foreign town
You've walked for miles
Till the heat slows you down

And your jeans and your curls
Are bleached and split
And your money and your anger
Are all used up

Maybe I'm sorry
About the light in this place
Makes my heart seem cold
As the words on these pages

Maybe I'm reminded
By a shop window displays or a decoration
Like some church candle
That might just burn, might just burn

'Cause we're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
Caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
When the world is lit by lightning
That I keep telling you
That I love you?

So you're ten miles out
Of this city at night
When do colored lights
Become paint and glass, and dust?

How I wonder
What light to trust
The light of the distance
Or the light might just burn, might just burn?

'Cause we're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
We caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
When the world is lit by lightning
That I keep telling you
I keep telling you, I keep telling you?

We're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
We're caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
When the world is lit by lightning?

Seraphim and cherubim
Skies full of gold dust
Moonshine and starlight
Pockets full of rainbows

Windows and mirrored balls
Porcelain and silver lake
Dance hall, neons flash and swing
Blow out your candles

It will call you
Angel, angel
Angel, angel, angel
When the world knows your name

We're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
Caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
When the world is lit by lightning
That I keep telling you
That I love you?

We're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
Caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
When the world is lit by lightning
That I keep telling you
That I love you?

I love you, I love you
When the world, when the world
When the world knows your name
When the world, when the world
When the world knows your name

When the world knows your name
When the world knows your name
When the world knows your name

We're dancing under chandeliers
And I'm telling you
Caught in the headlights
And I'm yelling it at you

Why is it girl
