Weekend Away (Tunng)

Wander through the wreckage Of the dancing flaws Faces turn in the light A stranger on the brink of love, love Confusion, near delight A cup of something warm In the dead of night We're friends in need, indeed Lies that only flatter love, love They whisper until we bleed Burning blindly like the sun Our hearts beat in rhythm all alone All our wishes are undone Forget those days, they've gone Piling in the back at the end of it all We're friends in need, indeed Lies that only flatter love, love They whisper until we bleed Drifting into days When all is said and done In blue, yellow and grey Stuck inside your head Are all those names gone by You're desperate to get away Burning blindly like the sun Our hearts beat in rhythm all alone All our wishes are undone Forget those days, they've gone And it's only a weekend away It's only a weekend away Let it be beautiful When we sing the last song It's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away It's only a weekend away Let it be beautiful When we sing the last song It's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away Let it be beautiful When we sing the last song It's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away Let it be beautiful When we sing the last song It's only a weekend away And it's only a weekend away It's only a weekend away Let it be beautiful When we sing the last song It's only a weekend away I carried you away And no one saw you leave I placed you in my pocket for safe keeping A miniaturized version of you And I will wear my halo in the sun So no one sees me cheating Well, I didn't mean to see To shipwreck you with me And now our poisoned pirate ship is broken And shards of wood and glass turn into ocean Rocks on top of rocks are in my view They leave my mouth wide open Salty water wash me Salty water wash me Like concrete turns you right Steel turns me on Metal doors will close and they will open Don't step on factory floors you will fall down Compartments allows you in my mind Like boxes on a slip line And I will wear my halo in the sun So no one sees me cheating Salty water wash me Salty water wash me
