Hear the sirens
Hear the sirens

Hear the sirens
Hear the circus so profound
I hear the sirens
More & more in this here town

Let me catch my breath & breathe
And reach across the bed
Just to know we're safe
I am a grateful man

The slightest bit of light
And I can see you clear
Have you take your hand, and feel your breath
For fear this someday will be over

I pull you close, so much to lose
Knowing that nothing lasts forever
I didn't care, before you were here
I danced in laughter with the everafter
But all things change
Let this remain

Hear the sirens
Covering distance in the night
The sound echoing closer
Will they come for me next time?

For every choice mistake I've made
It's not my plan
To send you in the arms of
Another man
And if you choose to stay I'll wait
I'll understand

It's a fragile thing
This life we lead
If I think too much I can get over
Whelmed by the grace
By which we live our lives
With death over our shoulders
Want you to know
That should I go I always loved you
Held you high above, true
I study your face
And the fear goes away

It's a fragile thing
This life we lead
If I think too much I can get over
Whelmed by the grace
By which we live our lives
With death over our shoulder
Want you to know
That should I go I always loved you
Held you high above, true
I study your face
And the fear goes away

The fear goes away
The fear goes away

Aah ah, oh oh
Aah ah, oh oh
