I have, I have you
Breathing down my neck, breathing down my neck
I don't, don't know
What you could possibly expect under this condition
So I'll wait, I'll wait
For the ambulance to come, ambulance to come
Pick us up off the floor
What did you possibly expect under this condition?

So slow down
This night's a perfect shade of dark blue, dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning and burning down
Dark blue, dark bluue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning 'til there's nothing but dark blue
Just dark blue

This flood (this flood)
This flood is slowly rising up swallowing the ground
Beneath my feet
Tell me how anybody thinks under this condition so
I'll swim (I'll swim) as the water rises up,
The sun is sinking down
And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it's best that I slow down

This night's a perfect shade of
Dark blue, dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning and burning down
Dark blue, dark blue
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning dark blue

We were boxing
We were boxing the stars
We were boxing (we were boxing)
You were swinging for Mars
And then the water reached the West Coast
And took the power lines (the power lines)
And it was me and you (this could last forever)
And the whole town under water
There was nothing we could do
It was dark blue

Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the world could be burning and burning down
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room
Well I'm here with you
I said the room could be burning
Now there's nothing but dark blue

If you've ever been alone in the dark blue
If you've ever been alone you'll know
You'll know
