Starting Line
by Keane



This town was a lovers' stage
but now you can't recognize
the street lights that are daggers to your eyes
you can't find your bearings
you're slipping into the ground
the scene has no colour and no sound.

You still believe in me
after the things I've done
you fear for what we have become.

The ground is uneven
you stumble from day to day
you tread where it's easy
although your feet are like lead
but you gotta get underway.

Drag your heart up to the starting line
forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
it's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
but tie up your thoughts and
lay them down on me.

Each heart is a paper kite
blown around by the breeze
love won't rest until it brings you to your knees.

Some find it easy
some will never even know
you think you've done your journey
then you stumble and find
that there's such a long way to go.

Drag your heart up to the starting line
forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
it's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
you wanna be lost and not be found
let's take the back way into town
drink to the bad times
lay them down on me.

Girl, I still believe in you
You're too good to fall so low
we're gonna find a better life I know.

Things will be clearer
as soon as we make a start
we'll be that much nearer
we're too old to just stand here
waiting to break apart.

Drag your heart up to the starting line
forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
it's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
but tie up your thoughts and
lay them down on me
on me... on me...
