City And Colour Young Lovers Lyrics

Where did we go wrong?

Will there be a future to look back from?

Feels like God is long gone

From the creatures who created him

We could give it all away

This machinery of violence

Still we gather for a feast of praise

To the devouring mouth of war

This is a fire

This is a revelation

Don’t let it burn out

Don’t let it fade away

Let’s run all the red lights

Make no promises

Live like young lovers

Who’ve never known heartache

Between the dark and dawn

Kings are killing people in the streets

Their ghosts are left to walk on

Through the nightmares of these bitter men

Golden towers climb towards the sky

A sparkling palace of sin

And still we act so surprised

That we are so hollow

This is a fire

This is a revelation

Don’t let it burn out

Don’t let it fade away

Let’s run all the red lights

Make no promises

Live like young lovers

Who’ve never known heartache

Standing on your own

While you struggle to survive

Left you standing all alone

While you struggle to survive

This is a fire

This is a revelation

Don’t let it burn out

Don’t let it fade away
