Secret Machines – 1000 Seconds lyrics

I must admit it's a balancing act
It looks dangerous, that's part of it
Remember, don't look down
You and I standing in a crowded room
We were pressed together but we're holding on
Like we're all that was, that's all there was

In a flash of light
We were drunk, we were having a fight
I was wrong, that don't mean you were right
Then you played that song, it was a thousand seconds long
It didn't end, it seemed to play on all night
'Cause if I remember right I fell asleep there

Rain clouds passed and darkened more
An evening touched by waiting for the sky burst
Storms had gathered in crushing lines
I surrendered to a way that I remembered you
That's all there was

If I were forced to choose, what I have, I have to lose
I need love, that don't mean I need you
It started with that song, it was a thousand seconds long
It didn't end 'cause we never got through

And did you think that I had planned it all along
Hoping not to be alone, well, I was there on the edge of the rush
And did you leave because you thought that I would stay
Stricken with a holy fright and it was clear as the night in the cold
And I won't ever know what you're afraid of

And when the world ends
A thousand seconds too
We'll watch the time pass
Run through the high end too

And then we'll wait there
A thousand seconds too
That's when it all ends
A thousand seconds too
