When you were young burnin' under the covers
And hundreds of lovers, were trailin' out behind you.
Time will move just as fast as you pull it,
Quicker than a bullet, you know it's gonna remind you.
How your heart's so sticky sweet, is waiting to attack.
You play the hand you're given, even though the deck is stacked
Until you're ready for the next one, yeah.
And then a wise man taught you a lesson, while you were confessin',
Starin' at the fire.
Take your time cuz as long as your livin', it's all that you're given
You are a slave to desire.
You said "oh sun come out today" it said "I will not shine."
You beg the moon to light your way it said "I must decline."

Because the fall, makes you break, and the break it makes you see that.
Only the light, gives you shape, in the darkness you stay shapeless.
Only love, gives you weight, only love can keep you weighted.
Only love, makes you weightless.

All this time you have been aching, oh for someone to trust.
Filling all your days with taken, doing all the things you must.
Gravity is slowly breakin' down your will. Don't hold it back.
Don't hold it back, don't hold it back, don't hold it back.

Because the fall, makes you break, but the break it makes you see that.
Only the light, gives you shape, in the darkness you stay shapeless.
Only love, gives you weight, only love can keep you weighted.
Only love. Ooooh.

Whoa.

When you were young burnin' under the covers
There were hundreds of lovers, trailin' out behind you.
Time will move just as fast as you pull it,
Quicker than a bullet, you know it's gonna remind you.
How your heart's so sticky sweet, is waiting to attack.
You play the hand you're given, even though you know the deck is stacked.
And now you're ready for the next one, yeah, yeah.
