Your parents hide
They live in fear
They’re lying restless as the dawn gets near
You wanna live
You wanna try
You hear the whisper of the world outside

So take a chance and leave tonight
Sarah’s waiting in a car outside
You bumped the door
Your father wakes
You let your anger and your sadness break

Chorus:
And when you turn around, he’s laid down on the ground
And now you’re standing with your finger on the pulse
And then an open door, two footsteps on the floor
And now you’re standing with your finger on the pulse

It’s Sarah’s face, her worried eyes
Pulls back the door and gently steps inside
The nighttime with a charcoal grin
The false diamonds on her pallid skin

Chorus:
And when she turns around, he’s laid down on the ground
And now you’re standing with your finger on the pulse
And then an open door, two footsteps on the floor
And now you’re standing with your finger on the pulse

Anna Calvi:
If I don’t belong by you
I don’t belong anywhere
You know I’d follow you
To the heart of nowhere
It’s just two kinds of ṗeople
God-fearer and the godless, cowards and the faithless
And I would stand by you
