Paradise Fears – Sanctuary lyrics

So go ahead and lie to yourself,
And pretend that you're a ray of light,
When you're a broken candle,

You're keeping time with yourself,
When did it all start moving way too fast,
For you to handle,

You're short on breath but heavy on time,
You lost the words but you found the rhyme,
It's all just poetry now,

The walls are singing,
Hallelujah amen,
The walls are singing,
Hallelujah amen,

It's so dark in the room,
And the ceilings are high,
You know the feeling,
You've been here before,

And it's a broken old pew,
And it's an echoing cry,
Don't sell yourself short,

On breath and heavy on time,
You lost the words but you found the rhyme,
It's all just poetry now,

The walls are singing,
Hallelujah amen,
The walls are singing,
Hallelujah amen,
X2

In time you'll find,
This life's a painting and you're the artist,
So open your eyes,
It's never too late to clear your canvas,

So paint me jealous,
Paint me rage,
For God's sake paint me anything,
Just paint,
Your brush awaits,

Hallelujah amen,
The walls sing you to sleep,
Hallelujah amen,
One secret meant to keep you safe tonight,
I swear that everything will be alright
