I'm a suspect, I'm a traitor,
I'm only here in body, visiting.
Yellow faces and the distant screams,
"The beauty is in what isn't said,"
I'm rising to my feet,

Because tonight, the world turned in me.
Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive and somewhere for us to find tonight,
Chase this light with me.

My Gesso, my last call,
My life is yours, in your gifted hands.
Confetti rainfall and the quiet street.
These things I've found are special now,
The knot is in my reach,

Because tonight, the world turned in me.
Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive and somewhere for us to find tonight,
Chase this light with me.

A movie still, photograph,
Through a martyr's eyes I can see,
I've seen the best of love, the best of hate, the best reward is earned,
I've paid for every single word I've ever said.

Confetti rainfall and the quiet street.
The beauty is in what you make it,
So get up on your feet.

Because tonight, the world turned in me,
Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive and somewhere for us to find tonight,
Chase this light with me.
Because tonight, the world turned in me.
Because right now, I don't dare to breathe.
Oh, babe, I know, it's alive and somewhere for us to find tonight,
Chase this light with me.
