You got the words that I sent before we knew what they meant So how far I would go to keep you Well you always do this to me every time With a mind on repeat I know we talk in our sleep Whatever it takes to feel this Will you trust me still if I burn this city down? Do you believe in me? Coz the stars are all you see And I don't wanna say that it's all come down to this I'll hold you as we watch the city burn Do you believe in me? Then take my hand All we need is this I'll show you as we watch the city burn My thoughts; an eager duet You've got your voice in my head The more you say it and say it and say The more my heart becomes me I know what I must do And the stars let me know with an approving glow that this is the way So just take my hand Your finger says it all Do you believe in me? Take my hand Chorus. Side by side with your hand in mine, Such a beautiful sight, such a beautiful night To see this all reflected in your eyes We'll watch the city burn Chorus. Side by side we'll watch the city burn in flames as tall as our love.

Yeah your call it sets alarms off All the lengths I'd go I want to save you even though you say that it's alright I've no excuses - none - for the loaded gun that is my love for you And I swear (From the top of my lungs) It'll always be true (Only for you) Coz I'd torch the ground just to see you smile for me again And I'd break anyone who'd dare to hurt you so I'll break them down Yeah your light is keeps you out of black So I won't let it go out And you won't have to do deal with this anymore I've no excuses - none - for the loaded gun that is my love for you And you know all too well what I would do for you (Only for you) Coz I'd burn the skies just to see your eyes sparkling again And I'd break anyone who'd dare to hurt you so I'll break you down I can't help myself I have to let you know how I feel Coz you're my angel so if they try to touch your wings I'll break them down

It's not what they think As much as they say "We're the same" A silent reaction We know we've changed Just a spark to see what we've seen New lines to read inbetween The street lamps are spotlights peering in We've changed Now we've sampled these horizons We've changed Felt these chemical attractions We've changed And there's no way we're going back now that We've changed We always wanted this but never knew It's not what they've seen It's under the surface Awoken internally We know we've changed Just a spark for to this begin Whispered words, beads on the skin The street lamps are spotlights in my eyes Chorus. Don't pull away We are the only ones you know Who we are Just a touch , a word is all it took and that's enough Can you see what we've become? Just a spark to see what we've seen New lines to read inbetween The street lamps are spotlights in my eyes Chorus.

Twilight sings it's famous song As we stare at the beyond Then it hits me like a train I see, I.. Your starlit skin - it keeps me warm Emotions flood and I'm sure In this moment with you at my side that.. You're the angel in my life With just your words you make the whole change The whole world change to what I need To what I need tonight In this summer night's caress I feel your heartbeat through your chest Drawn like magnets our eyes meet And I see, I.. That you're the only one I want I want you close, want you in arms Wanna stay like this with you by my side 'cause.. Chorus. I can feel you sink in to me Letting go of everything but this Right now, nothing else exists at all But this Chorus. Your starlit skin it keeps me warm Emotions flood and I'm sure that you're the only one To change the world to what I need tonight

Plug me in tonight coz when our souls united It all just melts away, it's only you and me inside Your voice drowns out all the pollution outside When you hold me and tell me "It's alright" As you call from my bed There's no room in my head For anything else except us Coz I would do anything for you To hear my name from your lips To feel the love in your kiss I would do anything for you To feel the passion of your hips To feel the sweat of your finger tips Do you understand all the lengths I'd go All the things I'd do just to keep you You'll see it when we watch the city burn You'll feel it when we watch the city burn You'll know it when we watch the city burn It's all for you, we'll watch the city...

You are serenity defined, your gaze entangled deep in mine Your eyes give you away not that there's anything left to hide from me Then as you bite your lip so slight, I think about how you changed my life How every face was a little star that led the way to find you The dress rehearsals were enough so now the safety's off Now it is us We've already come this far so what's a little more Through every part of everything Everything knock and every win I'm here for you If that's where you want me to be Every rise and every fall Every piece I want it all I'm here If you want me You are the constant in my mind, that dances in my dreams and I Know that when I will wake I'll feel your warmth through every part of me Then as you blink your eyes and smile, the whole world lights up bright all while I realize this what I've always wanted The dress rehearsals were enough so now the safety's off Now it's us Chorus. Oh when you softly sigh shake your waist, pull the hair out of your face The way you sing my name it makes me think Of every step it took to get here, every laugh and every tear How it was worth it coz now you're with me The dress rehearsals were enough so now the safety's off Every part of everything.

My neon dreams have escaped from intoxicated sleep They're pulling everyone deeper I know Coz it's a special kind of violence, the weight behind the silence That brings us to this So when you look at me Glowing on the lit screen See who I really am So when you look at me Which one do you see The image or the man? Identity, just a piece of what I've given you to see I'm pulling everyone deeper in.. Coz an image can be blinding, do you want to see behind it? I'm pulling everyone deeper in I know! This image Is mine If only They could see inside Chorus. Nights spent imbued If they only knew What was on the other side of a smile Like you.. The pretty mask you wore There's definitely much more and I'm glad I've seen inside My neon dreams have escaped from their sleep That's how it has to be, to fill the weight behind the silence. The glimmer on the screen might be closer to me Than what some of them have already seen So when you look at me Which one do you see The image or the man?

You're the dancer, ever after Turn around now you are the centre of my attention Full connection isn't to be taken lightly Welcome to the show Heat is rising We have all we need to sync the energies Welcome to the show We've been so long for this So let's make it one hell of a night to remember (One hell of a night) The stage is set, the night's one fire Meeting every wish and every desire Pull every nerve We are the stars tonight The lightest touch, electric kiss Yeah it's all come down to this We're the stars of the show tonight Induce high, thoughts will drip There is no way off this trip While we're the stars in the eyes tonight Welcome to the show You're the dancer, ever after Sweat it Yeah sweat it Yeah sweat it Yeah sweat it off We are tangled from all angles And there's no reason for us stop Welcome to the show Rush of blood We have all we need to make the night complete Welcome to the show Moving fast There's nowhere to hide when it's got you from inside Chorus. Welcome to the show You've been really great Welcome to the show It's one hell of a night You are the dancer, ever after You're the star of the show You make it look so easy hanging on so tight Now we've got it forever - it's one hell of a night

Saturate 'til it's on our terms We are the synthesis of the new world It's time to realize what we've always known It's better to bleed together than bleed on our own So let's shape the foundation With darker feelings disowned And push the boundaries of everything that we ever thought we knew Sequences and patterns Promises and secrets designed for us No-one else can know We like to keep it noisy Coz the silence would just wake us up Like shooting stars I've marked the shot I'll tear these streets apart Anything for this Coz all these things I do They're all for you And I'd go to the edge of what I thought was true Saturate 'til it's on our terms We are the synthesis of the new world So let push the boundaries of everything that we ever thought we knew We write our names In the fires we create We sketch our fates Then rearrange the shapes Oh we can do anything we want I hope you understand Coz all these things I do They're all for you And I'd go to the edge of what I thought was true All these things I do They're all for you And I'd go to the edge to make this true It's all for you

All the big things, all the little things - how they swirl into one so softly How they're here in me, in memory, in my skin here in everything that I am Everything that lead me to here to where I stand A familiar voice, my choice, everything that I've done and will do How I found you, an aim true, lean in close coz I know we'll live forever Now I know that that's no such thing as never And I feel it tonight, Yea I can feel it all And I see it tonight, Yea I can see it Just step inside like it's already here In my airwaves. It's here in me, in frequency, it resonates I create what I see And a thankyou, you know who, you're the the ones that kept me up together I hope you're proud and you know I always remember And I feel it tonight, Yea I can feel it all And I see it tonight, Yea I can see it Just step inside like it's already here In my airwaves And I want it tonight, Yea I want it all So I've got it tonight, Yea I've got it, start From inside, it's all becoming clear In my airwaves. My airwaves. All I create. In my airwaves. In my airwaves. My airwaves. Will keep us safe In my airwaves. You're the ones that got me through everything You're the ones that made me who I am So thankyou all! You shine so bright in my life Hear my airwaves.. My air waves.. All I create.. In my airwaves. Hear my airwaves.. My air waves.. Will keep us safe. In my airwaves. Can you hear me I'm calling out for you To take my hand And see from up In my airwaves All we can feel In my airwaves We'll decide what's real.. In my airwaves
