lyrics

Im gonna take my, I'm gonna bend my, I'm gonna break my bones
I'm gonna pull them apart so I can build you a home
With four walls and a roof top and between-sheets warm
In which I will lose my self inside of your form
So come on... come on... come on down
Now Fate ain't nothin but in the way
It's a blockade of ships that we will blow away
With the hurricanes and heaving rain inside of our chests
That we let out in sighs at every caress
So come on... come on... come on down x2

Now come down off your high horse
And call it just a matter of course
'Cuz I don't really know this dance
I'm one half of this romance

'Cuz I just wanna live in a city by the sea
But I'm expecting hope to abandon me
Against all those cliffsides close to her core
'Cuz this overlooked window is a closing door
So I just shut off, I shut off, I shut off me x2

So let's shout out the differences
And chalk it up to the instances
Of persuasive self-implore
Those warnings that we ignore

Come on... come on... come on down x2

Come on... come on... come on down x2

Come down off your high horse
And call it just a matter of course
'Cuz I don't really know this dance
I'm one half of this romance
Let's shout out the differences
And chalk it up to the instances
Of persuasive self-implore
Those warnings that we ignore
This playground was always ours
The opportunity to be stars
You're making this L over me
A lover that I cannot see

So come on... come on... come on down
Because I'm not... no I'm not... not coming down for you
