You Light My Fire – Nate Ruess

I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
But that would only make this harder
She can’t stand to sleep alone
Oh no and I hate losing so
I wait till we get tired

Well the could outside knows we can’t be alone
So I throw my arms right beside hers
Then I close my eyes lean in for something more
And you light my fire

As your heartbeat keeps me warm
We take Fourth Street cross corners to the bar
Where I slurred convinced we could make it brighter

I know we’re not as young as we’d like to be
But I like to think you’re bound to get the best of me
C’mon babe your love gets me high

I know one day I’ll fall for an oath
I just spend all my life trying to find her
But I burned down every door I’d ever shut
When you light my fire

I wanna throw the fight and kiss away your pain tonight
But that would only make this better

I know one day I’ll fall for an oath
I just spend all of my life on the run looking over my shoulder
Now I burn down every door I ever shut
When you light my fire

Brightside – Nate Ruess

Why’d you take the long way home?
I watched you walk slow past my window
Is that what you did it for?
I think it’s best you left me alone
You know I’m bound to make you cry
From up here I can see the Carlyle
I can see the Louvre shining in your eyes
I never meant to set the world on fire
Just wanted something you’d remember me by

But now I wish that I was on the bright side
These friends of mine could spend the whole night dreaming
While you’re holding me tight under the moonlight
Just you and I, we’ll lead a new life singing
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la

You know, I think it says a lot
That I could wake myself up from this dream
Grab the things that are most dear to me
And although I could have loved you better
I had to get the fuck out of the bed
Cause there’s just something about you my love
Something in the way you comb your hair
And fall apart at the seams
When you were young I used to throw you down
You’d show me how it feels to feel

Oh God, I wish that I was on the bright side
These friends of mine could spend the whole night dreaming
While you’re holding me tight under the moonlight
Just you and me, babe, we’ll spend our whole lives singing
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la

And look at you
And look at you
And look at you
And look at you

What This World Is Coming To (Feat, Beck) – Nate Ruess

Someone sucked the life out of the room
When that someone said goodbye much too soon
I’d hate for you to love me ’cause
You saw me out with someone who
You read about in the news
But I guess that’s what this world is coming to

I watched as your wrist began to bruise
Threading ribbons, weaving patterns
Beautiful and blue
All your late nights came to life
And then died upon just one dislike
Never mind all the people that you moved
But I guess that’s what this world is coming to

So let’s get high here in the moonlight
Even the stars go right over our head
I think I’m gonna shine in the afterlife
Leaving the fight for peace of mind instead

So let’s get high in the moonlight
Even the stars right over our heads
I know I’m gonna shine here in the afterlife
Leaving the fight for peace of mind instead

You know that I can’t stop thinkin’ ’bout you
You’re the source of everything I do
You brought faith to songs I sing
So I went and bought a diamond ring
I wanna spend each night here with you
Yeah you took everything I was
And you turned it into something I’ve become
Good God, what’s a boy to do?
But I guess that’s what this world
Oh, I guess that’s what this world
Oh, I guess that’s what this world is, is coming to
Oh, I guess that’s what my life is, is coming to

Moment – Nate Ruess

Well, you were burning up the sky
Looking for a light when you saved me
I was convinced no one would take me
You turned and took me by the hand
But now that look in your eyes
All of your sighs are saying “Go, please”
“Leave me alone and leave you lonely”
It looks as though we’ve reached the end

Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment
I’m alright right here on the floor
Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment to cry

And when I think about the ways
That you never waste your breath to say you love me
How you always held your lost loves above me
As you kept your other hand on the door
Yet I’ll admit I might miss
Every scar and every wish that we’d make
But our wishes were nothing but ways
To act as if we could use the change
Well, maybe one of these days
We’ll cross each other on a train to our new lives
We could talk about the old times
And how we’re glad we made it out alive

But for now I’ll sit and drink
As I think about the night that your father died
And I said I’d never leave your side
We once swore we could defeat this
Therefore, please excuse this little bit of weakness, oh

Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment of your time
To get all my things and let go
Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment to say goodbye

Well, Lord give me a reason
C’mon, show me you love me
I don’t want to let it go
Just to watch it fly
And Lord, give me a moment
Any of it, show me
I don’t want to feel it
I don’t wanna watch it go by

Because I’m fine
I just need a moment
I’m alright right here on the floor
Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment to say I’m fine
I need a moment
I’m alright here on the floor
Well, I’m fine
I just need a moment to cry
