Back to Whispers in the Dark lyrics

Whispers In The Dark

You hold your truth so purely
Well swerve not through the minds of men
This lie is dead

This cup of yours tastes holy
But a brush with the devil can clear your mind and strengthen your spine

But fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

Whispers in the dark
Steal a kiss and you'll break your heart
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes
Learn your lesson, lead me home
Spare my sins for the ark, I was too slow to depart
I'm a cad but I'm not a fraud, I'd set out to serve the Lord

But my heart was colder when you'd gone
And I lost my head but found the one that I love
Under the sun, under the sun

But fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance
Fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance!

(Woo!)

*Instrumental break*

But my heart was colder when you'd gone
And I lost my head; let's live while we are young
While we are young
While we are young
While we are young
