If you were here beside me,
Instead of in New York
If the curve of you was curved on me

I'd tell you that I loved you
Before I even knew you
'Cause I loved the simple thought of you

If our hearts had never broken
Well there's no joy in the mending
So much this hurt can teach us both

There's distance and there's silence
Your words have never left me
They're the prayer that I say every day

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

The lone neon lights
And the heat of the ocean
And the fire that had started to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

If you were here beside me
Instead of New York
In the arms you said you'd never leave

I'd tell you that it's simple
And it was only ever thus
There is nowhere else that I belong

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

Come on come out come here come here

The lone neon lights
And the want of the ocean
And the fire that had started to spark
I miss it all from the love to the lightning
And the lack of it snaps me in two

Just give me a sign
There is end in a beginning
Til the quiet chaos driving me mad
The lone neon lights
And the want of the ocean
And the fire that had started to go out
