Bastille Final Hour Lyrics

Come on, come on, don’t stop a-running with me

Come on, come on, don’t stop a-running…

He’s throwing his hands up to the sky

How many more ways are there to say this

He’s wondering how many more times

Will we all bear witness

And can’t you feel the temperature rising?

‘Cause we’ve never felt a heat like this before

And can’t you see it on the horizon

Then he opens up his questions to the floor

Would it keep you awake if it all didn’t just seem so far away?

‘Cause it keeps me awake trying to work this out until my dying day

It’s always you standing in our way

It’s always you that’s leading us astray

It takes a big man to cry on screen

Delivering words that fall on deaf ears

It’s such a big wheel to try and turn

But in his final hour it’s worth it

And can’t you feel the temperature rising?

‘Cause we’ve never felt a heat like this before

And can’t you see it on the horizon

Then he opens up his questions to the floor

Would it keep you awake if it all didn’t just seem so far away?

‘Cause it keeps me awake trying to work this out until my dying day

It’s always you standing in our way

It’s always you that’s leading us astray

Come on, come on, don’t stop a-running with me

Come on, come on, don’t stop a-running…

Would it keep you awake if the waters rise and took your house away?

Would it keep you awake if the gun you love was turned at you one day?

It’s always you standing in our way

It’s always you that’s leading us astray

You are always… You are always leading us astray
