Ives The Band – The Ringleader lyrics

You have this way about you, in your eyes
Those fools will hang on your words
So come on warm the spotlights
Tonight we steal the show

You see the world, it died in my arms
We tried to hold on
But everything was wrong
God where has she gone
This circus we knew
Oh, all we've been through
Has come down to this dim empty room

You have no worries 'bout, cuz you're right
You stand on top of the world
So come on warm the spotlights
Tonight the crowd is ours

You see the world, it died in my arms
But was it so wrong
She was slipping from my hold
And leading me on
This anchor she threw
Was drowning me too
That charlatan kept dragging me down

It died in my arms
I tried to hold on
But something in my soul
Said let it be done
Tonight's the night to
(Our only chance to)
So take me in your arm
As we carry on
