The Material – Before This Ship Goes Down lyrics

Don't kid yourself, you said to me
We'll pack our bags, but never leave this room
We'll never leave this room
What happened to our plans, our dreams
We buried them on this small street too soon, too soon

I know you're scared, but so am I
If we never leave, then we'll never try

You and I want to know what we were, hand in hand as unbreakable as stone
You and I we wont get pulled under
When the waves crash down we'll stay afloat
You and I want to know we'll make it, selling out this god-forsaken town
Before this ship goes down

Let's take a chance and leave tonight
Believe me dear, we'll be alright, it's true
We'll be alright, it's true
Turn the key and take the wheel
No looking back, this time it's real, with you yeah, with you

I know yo're scared, but so am I
If we never leave then we'll never try

You and I want to know what we were, hand in hand as unbreakable as stone
You and I, we won't get pulled under
When the waves crash down we'll stay afloat
You and I want to know we'll make it, selling out this god-forsaken town
Before this ship goes down

We won't go down

This time it's now or never
Forget the map, we've got each other

We won't go down

This time it's now or never
Let's leave this place forever

I know you're scared but so am I

You and I want to know what we were, hand in hand as unbreakable as stone
You and I, we won't get pulled under
When the waves crash down we'll stay afloat
You and I want to know we'll make it, selling out this god-forsaken town
Before this ship goes down

You and I want to know what we were, hand in hand as unbreakable as stone
You and I, we won't get pulled under
When the waves crash down we'll stay afloat
You and I want to know we'll make it, selling out this god-forsaken town
Before this ship goes down
