Sara Bareilles Orpheus Lyrics

Come by the fire

Lay down your head

My love I see you’re growing tired so set the bad day by the bed

And rest a while

Your eyes can close

You don’t have to do a thing but listen to me sing I know

You miss the world

The one you knew

The one where everything made sense because you didn’t know the truth

That’s how it works

Till the bottom drops out

And you learn we’re all just hunters seeking solid ground

Don’t stop

Trying to find me here amidst the chaos

Though I know it’s blinding

There’sa way out

Say out loud

We will not give up on love now

No fear

Don’t you turn like Orpheus

Just stay here

Hold me in the dark and when the day appears

We’ll say

We did not give up on love today

I’ll show you good

Restore your faith

I’ll try and somehow make a meaning of the poison in this place

Convince you love, don’t breathe it in

You were written in the stars that we are swimming in

And it has no name

No guarantee

It’s just the promise of a day I know that some may never see

But that’s enough

If the bottom drops out

I hope my love was someone else’s solid ground

Don’t stop

Trying to find me here amidst the chaos

Though I know it’s blinding

There’s a way out

Say out loud

We will not give up on love now

No fear

Don’t you turn like Orpheus

Just stay here

Hold me in the dark and when the day appears

We’ll say

We did not give up on love today

We’ll say

We did not give up on love today
