Oh London moon
Help me stumble home
Let me lose myself along the way

I've got nothing left
It's kind of wonderful
'Cause there's nothing they can take away
Away

The open doors
Left me wanting more
Never thought they'd close them all away

The ordinary life they want for you
Is it too much to have to bear?

But it's another way to win a useless fight
You've been lying so long from the way that you're faking
See the water run and rise
Just another day into a useless night
I've been pushing so hard that my hands are shaking
See the water run and rise

But I've been turned around
I was upside down
I thought love would always find a way
But I know better now
Got it figured out
It's a perfect world all the same
World

But I've been turned around
I was upside down
I thought love would always find a way
But I know better now
Got it figured out
It's a perfect world all the same

World, world, world, world
World, world, world, world

I was hoping for
An easy rambling life
'Till an ocean came to my mind
We look for exit signs
But we can't be changed
Into nothing overnight
Though we know it's over
It keeps exploding
Every morning when we rise
