The love that pounds your heart through your chest every night
Until the bed jumps beneath you and scares you white

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't. You can't
Goose-bumps that don't fade away
They can't remain

I've opened the box and I've touched the treasures of the earth
They're buried on the island far away
And I'm here in England with the map burning my pocket
Dreaming of diamonds.
Such a blinding secret to bear.

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't . You can't.
Goose-bumps that don't fade away
They can't remain
Hold the perfect moment
Pin the cloud to the sky
Grab the spark and hold it
You can TRY.

I've looked into a million laughing unhappinesses
In every bar and on the TV
But I know the real thing
I can remember
I can almost tell you how it is

Trap the spark and hold it there
You can't. You can't
Goosebumps that don't fade away
They can't remain
Photograph a feeling
Pin the cloud to the sky
Trap the spark and hold it
You can try

Trap the spark and hold it there
Grab the spark and hold it there.
