Bastille Poet Lyrics

Obsession it takes control

Obsession it eats me whole

I can’t say the words out loud

So in rhyme I wrote you down

Now you’ll live through the ages

I can feel your pulse in the pages

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

And all the world will read you

And you live forever

In eyes not yet created

On tongues that are not born

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

Your body lies upon the sheets

Of paper and words so sweet

I can’t say the words

So I wrote you into my verse

Now you’ll live through the ages

I can feel your pulse in the pages

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

And all the world will read you

And you will live forever

In eyes not yet created

On tongues that are not born

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

I have read her with these eyes,

I’ve read her with these eyes,

I have held her in these hands

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

The virtue’s in the verse

And you will live forever

I have written you down

Now you will live forever

And all the world will read you

And you will live forever

In eyes not yet created

On tongues that are not born

I have written you down

You will live forever

You will live forever
