Walls Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Kill My Mind

You're a nightmare on the dance floor
And you hate me, and I want more
You're a total distraction
While I'm waiting for your reaction
Why, ah, ah, ah

The devil in my brain
Whispering my name
I can hear it sayin', ah, ah, ah
I can ease the pain
Just a little taste babe
And ya won't let go of your hold on me

You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now
You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now

Kept me living
From the last time
From a prison of a past life
On a mission just to feel like
When you kissed me for the last time
Why, ah, ah, ah

The devil in my brain
Whispering my name
I can hear it sayin', ah, ah, ah
I can ease the pain
Just a little taste babe
And ya won't let go of your hold on me

You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now
You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now
You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now

Kill my, kill my, kill my
Kill my, kill my, kill my
Kill my, kill my, kill my
Kill my, kill my, kill my

You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now
You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now

You kill my mind
Raise my body back to life
And I don't know what I'd do without you now

Don't Let it Break Your Heart

On our way to Twenty Seven
Got a place on the other side of London
Doing better
Doing better
And I know you left a part of you
In New York under your bed in a box
But you're doing better
Doing better

Life gets hard and it gets messed up
When you give so much, but it's not enough
When the high's too high, and the low's too low
When you love someone and they let you go

Don't you let it kill you
Even when it hurts like hell
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart
Time takes time to heal it
You can't do it by yourself
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart

It comes, it goes
We're driving down a one way road
To something better
Something better
And what hurts you is gonna pass
And you'll have learnt from it when it comes back
You'll be doing better
Yeah, doing better

'Cause life gets hard and it gets messed up
When you give so much, but it's not enough
When the high's too high, and the low's too low
When you love someone and they let you go

Don't you let it kill you
Even when it hurts like hell
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart
Time takes time to heal it
You can't do it by yourself
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart

Oh
Oh
Oh
Don't let it break your heart

'Cause life gets hard and it gets messed up
When you give so much and it's not enough
When the high's too high, and the low's too low
When you love someone and they let you go

Don't you let it kill you
Even when it hurts like hell
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart
Time takes time to heal it
You can't do it by yourself
Oh, whatever tears you apart
Don't let it break your heart

Don't let it break your heart (oh)
Don't let it break your heart (oh)
Don't let it break your heart (oh)
Don't let it break your heart
(Don't let it break your heart)
Don't let it break your heart (oh)
Don't let it break your heart (oh) (don't let it break your heart)
Don't let it break your heart (oh)
Don't let it break your heart
(Don't let it break your heart)

Two of Us

It's been a minute since I called you
Just to hear the answerphone
Yeah, I know that you won't get this
But I'll leave a message so I'm not alone
This morning I woke up still dreaming
With memories playing through my head
You'll never know how much I miss you
The day that they took you, I wish it was me instead

But you once told me, "Don't give up
You can do it day by day"
And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away

So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

I could feel your blood run through me
You're written in my DNA
Looking back in every mirror
I know you'll be waiting, I'll see you again

But you once told me, "Don't give up
You can do it day by day"
And diamonds, they don't turn to dust or fade away (fade away)

So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

I promised you I'd do this
So all of this is all for you
Oh, I swear to God you're living
Through everything I'll ever do

So I will keep you day and night, here until the day I die
I'll be living one life for the two of us
I will be the best of me, always keep you next to me
I'll be living one life for the two of us
Even when I'm on my own, I know I won't be alone
Tattooed on my heart are the words of your favorite song
I know you'll be looking down, swear I'm gonna make you proud
I'll be living one life for the two of us

One life for the two of us
I'll be living one life for the two of us

We'll end just like we started
Just you and me and no one else
I will hold you where my heart is
One life for the two of us

We Made It

'Cause we made it
Underestimated
And always underrated
Now we're saying goodbye
Waving to the hard times
Yeah, it's gonna be alright
Like the first time
Met you at your doorstep
Remember how we tasted
Looking into your eyes
Baby, you were still high
Never coming down with your hand in mine

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh my, I remember those nights
Meet you at your uni', cheap drinks
Drink 'em all night
Staying out 'til sunrise
Share a single bed and tell each other what we dream about
Things we'd never say to someone else out loud
We were only kids, just tryna work it out
Wonder what they'd think if they could see us now, yeah

'Cause we made it
Underestimated
And always underrated
Now we're saying goodbye
Waving to the hard times
Knew that we would be alright
From the first time
Met you at your doorstep
Remember how we tasted
Looking into your eyes
Baby, you were still high
Never coming down with your hand in mine

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, God, what I could've become
Don't know why they put all of this on us when we're so young
Done a pretty good job dealing with it all
When you're here, don't need to say no more
Nothing in the world that I would change it for
Singing something poppy on the same four chords
Used to worry 'bout it but I don't no more, yeah

'Cause we made it
Underestimated
And always underrated
Now we're saying goodbye
Waving to the hard times
Smoke something, drink something
Yeah, just like the first time
Met you at your doorstep
Remember how we tasted
Looking into your eyes
Baby, and we're still high
Never coming down with your hand in mine

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah) with your hand in mine
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
No, no, no, no
'Cause we made it
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, 'cause we made it
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Never coming down with your hand in mine

(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Too Young

We were too young
To know we had everything
Too young
I wish I could've seen it all along
I'm sorry that I hurt you, darling, no
We were too young

I've been looking back a lot lately
My and you is all I've ever known
It's hard to think you could ever hate me
But everything's feeling different now

Oh, I can't believe I gave into the pressure
When they said a love like this would never last
So I cut you off 'cause I didn't know no better
Now I realize, yeah, I realize

We were too young
To know we had everything
Too young
I wish I could've seen it all along
I'm sorry that I hurt you, darling, no
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young

Face to face at the kitchen table
This is everything I've waited for
Now we can finally have a conversation
That I wish we could've had before

Oh, I can't believe I gave into the pressure
When they said a love like this would never last
So I cut you off 'cause I didn't know no better
Now I realize, yeah, I realize

We were too young
To know we had everything
Too young
I wish I could've seen it all along
I'm sorry that I hurt you, darling, no
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young

It's been two years since I've seen your face
Tryna find some better words to say
Before I let this moment slip away
'Cause now I realize

We were too young
To know we had everything
Too young
I wish I could've seen it all along
I'm sorry that I hurt you, darling, no
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young (ooh-ah)
We were too young

Walls

Nothing wakes you up like waking up alone
And all that's left of us is a cupboard full of clothes
The day you walked away and took the higher ground
Was the day that I became the man that I am now

But these high walls, they came up short
Now I stand taller than them all
These high walls never broke my soul, and I
I watched them all come falling down
I watched them all come falling down for you
For you

Nothing makes you hurt like hurtin' who you love (hurting who you love)
And no amount of words will ever be enough (never be enough)
I looked you in the eyes, saw that I was lost (saw that I was lost)
For every question "why", you were my "because" (you were my "because")

But these high walls, they came up short
Now I stand taller than them all
These high walls never broke my soul, and I
I watched them all come falling down
I watched them all come falling down for you
Falling down for you

So this one is a thank you for what you did to me
Why is it that 'thank you's' are so often bittersweet
I just hope I see you one day and you'll say to me, "Oh, oh"

But these high walls, they came up short
Now I stand taller than them all
These high walls never broke my soul, and I
I watched them all come falling down
I watched them all come falling down for you
Falling down for you

Nothing wakes you up like waking up alone

Habit

I always said that I'd mess up eventually
I told you that, so what did you expect from me?
It shouldn't come as no surprise anymore
I know you said that you'd give me another chance
But you and I knew the truth of it in advance
That mentally, you were already out the door

Never thought that giving up would be so hard
God, I'm missing you and your addictive heart

You're the habit that I can't break
You're the feeling I can't put down
You're the shiver that I can't shake
You're the habit that I can't break
You're the high that I need right now
You're the habit that I can't break

I took some time 'cause I've ran out of energy
Of playing someone I heard I'm supposed to be
But honestly, I don't have to choose anymore
And it's been ages, different stages
Come so far from Princess Park
I'll always need ya
In front of me, in front of me

You're the habit that I can't break
You're the feeling I can't put down
You're the shiver that I can't shake
You're the habit that I can't break
You're the high that I need right now
You're the habit that I can't break

You gave me the time and the space
I was out of control, and I'm sorry I let you down
Guess that I know what I already knew
I was better with you, and I miss you now

You're the habit that I can't break
You're the feeling I can't put down
You're the shiver that I can't shake
You're the habit that I can't break
You're the high that I need right now
You're the habit that I can't break

You're the habit that I can't break
You're the feeling I can't put down
You're the shiver that I can't shake
You're the habit that I can't break
You're the high that I need right now
You're the habit that I can't break

Always You

I went to Amsterdam without you
And all I could do was think about you
And, oh, I should've known
I went to Tokyo to let it go
Drink after drink but I still felt alone
I should've known

I went to so many places
Looking for you in the faces
I could feel it, oh, I could feel it

I'm wasting my time when it was always you
Always you
Chasing the high but it was always you
Always you

Should've never let you go, oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh, my baby
Go, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

I went from LAX to Heathrow
Walk through my door but it felt nothing like home
'Cause you're not home
Waiting to wrap your legs around me
And I know you hate to smoke without me and, oh
Now you know

I'm wasting my time when it was always you
Always you
Chasing the high but it was always you
Always you

Should've never let you go, oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh, my baby
Go, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh, my baby
Go, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

I went to so many places
Looking for you in the faces
I could feel it, oh, I could feel it

Wasting my time when it was always you
Always you
I was chasing the high but it was always you
Always you

Should've never let you go, oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh, my baby
Go, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh-oh
Should've never let you go, oh, my baby
Go, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh

My baby
Oh, my baby

Fearless

Cash in your weekend treasures
For a suit and tie, a second wife
Now, I'm not saying that you could've done better
Just remember that I, I've seen that fire alight

Tell me, do you?
Tell me, do you still remember feeling young?

Tell me the truth
Tell me, do you still remember feeling young
Strong enough to get it wrong
In front of all these people?
Just for tonight, look inside
And spark that memory of you
Strong enough to get it wrong
In front of all these people

Fearless, fearless
Fearless, fearless

Now, if happiness is always measured
By the life you design, that car in the drive
Then you should feel better than ever
But you know as well as I, it's all lies

Tell me, do you?
Tell me, do you still remember feeling young?

Tell me the truth
Tell me, do you still remember feeling young?
Strong enough to get it wrong
In front of all these people?
Just for tonight, look inside
And spark that memory of you
Strong enough to get it wrong
In front of all these people

Fearless, fearless
Fearless, fearless

Fearless, fearless
Fearless, fearless

Tell me, do you?
Tell me, do you still remember feeling young?

Perfect Now

You say to me your jeans don't fit
You don't feel pretty and it's hard to miss
I wish that you could see my point of view
As someone starin' back at you
One Friday night when we're all out
I turn to you and you're looking down
And you don't wanna dance, I know you love to dance
You never stop given half the chance

Just keep your head up, love, keep your head up
Don't hide away, don't ever change
Keep your head up love, keep your head up
Don't look away, don't look away

'Cause everybody's lookin' at you now
My, oh, my
I guess some queens don't need a crown
And I know why
Even when your tears are falling down
Still somehow
You're perfect now

You never do but if you asked me to
I'd tell the truth lying next to you
'Cause you're the only one, when it's said and done
You make me feel like being someone
Good to you, even at your worst
You steal the scene and it's unrehearsed
Don't you wanna dance, just a little dance?
I would never stop given half the chance

Just keep your head up, love, keep your head up
Don't hide away, don't ever change
Keep your head up love, keep your head up
Don't look away, don't look away

'Cause everybody's lookin' at you now
My, oh, my
I guess some queens don't need a crown
And I know why
Even when your tears are falling down
Still somehow
You're perfect now

Every insecurity
Like a neon sign as bright as day
If you knew what you were to me
You would never try to hide away

'Cause everybody's lookin' at you now
My, oh, my
I guess some queens don't need a crown
And I know why
Even when your tears are falling down
Still somehow
You're perfect now

Defenceless

I come runnin' to you like a moth into flame
You tell me, "Take it easy" but it's easier to say
Wish I didn't need so much of you
I hate to say, but I do
We're sleeping on our problems like we'll solve them in our dreams
Wake up early mornin' and they're still under the sheets
I'm lost in my head, I'm spinnin' again
Tryna find more to say to you

Been up all night
All night, runnin' all my lines
But it's only the truth
Been up all night
Not sure how to say this right
Got so much to lose

Never been so defenseless
Never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless

No, you don't have to keep on bein' strong for me and you
Acting like you feel no pain, you know I know you do
And you can't get inside when you're lost in your pride
You don't have a thing to prove

Been up all night
All night, runnin' all my lines
But it's only the truth
Been up all night
Not sure how to say this right
Got so much to lose

Never been so defenseless
Never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless

I hope that I'm not asking too much
Just wanna be loved by you (don't you be so defensive)
And I'm too tired to be tough
Just wanna be loved by you

Never been so defenseless
Never been so defenseless
And you just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
Defenseless
Never been so defenseless
Never been so defenseless
You just keep on building up your fences
But I've never been so defenseless

Only the Brave

Pour mercy, mercy on me
Set fire to history
I'm breaking my own rules
I'm crying like a fool
Tall stories on the page
Short glories on the faint
I've been close enough to touch
But I never cared for love

It's the church of burnt romances
And I'm too far gone to pray
It's a solo song
And it's only for the brave

If the truth tell
Darling, you feel
Like there ain't enough dying stars in your sky
It's a tall tale
And it's only hello, hello, no goodbye

Pour mercy, mercy on me
I'll fall upon my knees
And they'll say, "I told you so"
Come on, when you know, you know
Oh, the lonely shadow dances
From the cradle to the grave
It's a solo song
And it's only for the brave
