You wanna pick somethin’ up, you gotta lay it down
You wanna turn somethin’ on, you gotta set it off
You wanna let something in, you gotta tear it out
I wanna feel the sun, I just need some air

The only word that you know is please, please, please
The only life that you see is from your knees
I wanna feel the light, I just can’t receive
Don’t wanna leave the ground, I just need some air
I need some air

It’s just a love that you can’t get back
It’s just a tale of a heart attack
You feel alive, but you’re sinking fast
Just close your eyes, this won’t be your last

You wanna lift somethin’ up, you gotta pin it down
You wanna pull somethin’ in, you gotta let it out
You wanna light something up, you gotta burn it down
I wanna feel the sun, I just need some air

The only word that you know is please, please, please
The only life that you see is from your knees
I wanna feel the light, I just can’t receive
Don’t wanna leave the ground, I just need some air
I need some air

It’s just a love that you can’t get back
It’s just a tale of a heart attack
You feel alive, but you’re sinking fast
Just close your eyes, this won’t be your last

You wanna pick something up, you gotta lay it down
You wanna turn something on, you gotta set it off
You wanna light something up, you gotta burn it down
I wanna feel the sun, I just need some air
I need some air
I need some air
I need some air

It’s just a love that you can’t get back
It’s just a tale of a heart attack
You feel alive, but you’re sinking fast

Just close your eyes, this won’t be your last

It’s not the prayer you repeat at night
It’s not the saint that has seen the light
It’s just the breath that you hold inside
Just keep your, cool it will be alright
