  • Head North – Stranger Sounds Lyrics

    Close your eyes
    Have no fear
    The night is wide
    But she’ll find you here

    It curls like coffee cup smoke
    On that off-white dress you used to know so well

    That dizzy smile in clouded swirl
    That soft-skinned while when I was hers
    Those lips that finally formed
    In the haze of light from your bedroom door
    Once more said, “Don’t fear the coming wave
    Nothing breaks with it
    I am in the rain
    I am the Empire State

    And I won’t change a bit”

    I miss all of you now
    My home as much as stranger sounds whispered
    It pulls like nothing I’ve known
    Between a place to live and space to grow
    My home all alone
    All alone
    All alone
    All alone
    All alone

    I’m gonna be the one who sees you
    I’m gonna be the one who knows
    I’m gonna be the one who fears you
    I’m gonna be the one you chose


  • Fun. – We Are Young lyrics

    Give me a second, I
    I need to get my story straight
    My friends are in the bathroom
    Getting higher than the Empire State
    My lover she is waiting for me
    Just across the bar,
    My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses
    Asking ’bout a scar
    I know I gave it to you months ago
    I know you’re trying to forget
    But between the drinks and subtle things
    And the holes in my apologies
    You know I’m trying hard to take it back
    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down
    I’ll carry you home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Now I know that I’m not
    All that you got
    I guess that I,
    I just thought,
    Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
    But our friends are back
    So let’s raise the cup
    ‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s the set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Carry me home tonight
    (La la la la la la)
    Just carry me home tonight
    (La la, la la la la la la)
    Carry me home tonight
    (La la la la la la)
    Just carry me home tonight
    (The world is on my side, )
    Carry me home tonight
    (I have no reason to run, )
    Just carry me home tonight
    (So will someone come and carry me home tonight?)
    The angels never arrived,
    But I can hear the choir
    So will someone come and carry me home

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    Tonight,
    We are young
    So let’s set the world on fire
    We can burn brighter
    Than the sun

    So if by the time the bar closes
    And you feel like falling down
    I’ll carry you home,
    Tonight.
