spiralling by keane

that’s the story of my life right now

spiralling

I’m waiting 
For my moment to come 
I’m waiting 
For the movie to begin 
I’m waiting 
For a revelation 
I’m waiting for someone 
To count me in 

Cos now 
I only see my dreams 
In everything I touch 
Feel their cold hands on 
Everything that I love 
Cold like some 
Magnificant skyline 
Out of my reach 
But always 
In my eyeline now 

We’re tumbling down 
We’re spiralling 
Tied up to the ground 
We’re spiralling 

I fashioned you 
From jewels and stone 
I made you 
In the image of myself 
I gave you 
Everything you wanted 
So you would never know 
Anything else 

But everytime 
I reach for you 
You slip 
Through my fingers 
Into cold sunlight 
Laughing at the things 
That I had planned 
The map of my world gets 
Smaller as I sit here 
Pulling at the loose 
Threads now 

We’re tumbling down 
We’re spiralling 
Tied up to the ground 
We’re spiralling 
When we fall in love 
We’re just falling 
In love with ourselves 
We’re spiralling 

Did you wanna be a winner? 
Did you wanna be an icon? 
Did you wanna be famous? 
Did you wanna be the president? 
Did you wanna start a war? 
Did you wanna have a family? 
Did you wanna be in love? 
Did you wanna be in love? 

I never saw the light 
I never saw the light 
I waited up all night 
But I never saw the light 

When we fall in love 
We’re just falling 
In love with ourselves 
We’re spiralling 
We’re tumbling down 
We’re spiralling 
Tied up to the ground 
We’re spiralling
