Is our secret safe tonight
And are we out of sight
Will our world come tumbling down?
Will they find our hiding place
Is this our last embrace
Or will the world stop caving in?

It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it should've been right
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
To let our hearts ignite
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Are we digging a hole
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
This is out of control
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
It can never last
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Must erase it fast
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it could've been right
It could be wrong could be

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart they wont stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed

If we live our life in fear
I'll wait a thousand years
Just to see you smile again
Kill the prayers for love and peace
You'll wake the thought police
We can't hide the truth inside

It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it should've been right
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
To let our hearts ignite
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Are we digging a hole
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
This is out of control
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
It can never last
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
Must erase it fast
It could be wrong
Could be wrong
But it could've been right
It could be wrong could be

Love is our resistance
They'll keep us apart they wont stop breaking us down
Hold me
Our lips must always be sealed

The night has reached it's end
We can't pretend
We must run
We must run
It's time to run

Take us away from here
Protect us from further harm
RESISTANCE...

    Ive herd that they made this album inspired by 1984 but also telling us to open our eyes and how our society now is like 1984 without many of us realizing it.

    This song - to me - means love.
    It means fighting for love,
    and striving to keep it together.
    But in the end you make enemies
    and you don't want them to find you,
    so you run and run and hide and cross your fingers.
    I agree with LyricallyInsane.
    It's basically a forbidden love.

    this really has nothing to do with twilight, even though it talks about love, NOT EVERYTHING THAT HAS LOVE GOES WITH TWILIGHT PEOPLES!!

    the song is an allegory to George Orwell's novel 1984. the two people who this song is written about is Julia and Winston. They are in love in a world where love doesn't exist and thought police monitor your inner most thoughts from outward perspectives. They are speaking of their secret rendezvous where they truly feel alive. The final stanza is the catharsis to where Winston is forced to betray his love to Julia. Read the book and you will see the resemblance.
