If you twist and turn away
If you tear yourself in two again
If I could, you know I would
If I could, I would let it go
Surrender, dislocate

If I could throw this lifeless
Lifeline to the wind
Leave this heart of clay
Just to see you break, break away
Into the night
Out through the Irish rain
Into the half-light and the light
And then back again to the light
Sing it now

To let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade away
I’m wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping

If you should ask
Well maybe they would tell me
What I should say
True colours fly in blue and black
Through silken sky, like a burning flag
Colours crash, collide in bloodshot eyes

If I could, you know I would let it go
This separation
The concept of a nation
I want a disintegration
Not condemnation

Let it go
So not fade away
To let it go
So not fade, fade, fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Not fade away

Come on
Be their rock
Be their rock

Wide awake
Wide awake
Wide awake
I’m not sleeping
I’m not sleeping
Are you, are you

We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Before the wind
Into the mystic
