Hold Tight

lyrics

When love shatters
Shards, fragments fly everywhere
Splintered hearts, wounded pride
Black powder shame hanging in the air

Casings fall soft on carpet
Next to the bags by the door
Every move is in slow motion
Pull the pin and hit the floor

It’s your pattern of disruption
Striking everything within your sights
I’m steeling for destruction
You’re lighting the fuse, you’re ready to fight

Waves pulsing in my bones
Bells pealing in my ears
Since when did this living room
Become a battlefield

It’s your pattern of disruption
Striking everything within your sights
I’m steeling for destruction
You’re lighting the fuse, you’re ready to fight

Pressure pressing down
Pressure pressing down
Pressure pressing down
Hold tight hold tight hold tight
