Mikky Ekko – Burning Doves lyrics

[Verse 1]
Behind a velvet rope, we hide in plain sight
We're dressed in black smoke, & have our hands tied
She says I see you babe but we are both blind
Our bodies yearnin' for what we cannot find
The end is beginnin' & I'm fallin'
So take it or leave it cause I'm all in

[Chorus]
We're 2 young to die today, to die today
But we're 2 broken to fly away, to fly away
Cause we both know betta than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're 2 young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves

[Verse 2]
You've been on your knees prayin' for so long
When you close your eyes the words do not come
The end is beginnin' & you're fallin'
So take it or leave it cause I'm all in

[Chorus]
We're 2 young to die today, to die today
But we're 2 broken to fly away, to fly away
Cause we both know betta than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're 2 young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves

[Bridge]
If you can show me, I can lift you up
& if you call my name, then I can see up
& I'm sorry, I'm sorry for the things we've done
We're fallin', we're fallin' from a burnin' sun
We flew 2 high lookin' for love
We knew the skies, but not well enough

[Chorus]
We're 2 young to die today, to die today
But we're 2 broken to fly away, to fly away
Cause we both know betta than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're 2 young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves
