embrace lyrics – chase & status

“embrace”
(feat. white lies)

when the daylight weighs a tonne
and all my friends are gone,
there’s rust around the things i love,
when it’s fraying at the seams of reality and dreams,
all those dreams are quiet and dull

this town’s alright
but it’s not enough
i’m looking for a quick exit
like a prisoner on the run
[x2]

big time breakdown
look how the stars come out
big time breakdown
why didn’t you just shout

i’m lonely and i’m looking
for a place to go
where everything’s an embrace
and everybody wants to know

i’m your absent valentine
and the pigtails in the bride
i’m the still that carves the toes in your bottle
i’m the lynch mob in the dark
i’m the silk worm in your heart
spinning out my perfect circle

this town’s alright
but it’s not enough
i’m looking for a quick exit
like a prisoner on the run
[x2]

big time breakdown
look how the stars come out
big time breakdown
why didn’t you just shout

i’m lonely and i’m looking
for a place to go
where everything’s an embrace
and everybody wants to know

i’m on the water
fetch your brother, fetch your daughter
come, come undone
fetch your sister, fetch your son

this town’s alright
but it’s not enough
i’m looking for a quick exit
like a prisoner on the run
[x2]

big time breakdown
look how the stars come out
big time breakdown
why didn’t you just shout

i’m lonely and i’m looking
for a place to go
where everything’s an embrace
and everybody wants to know
