thirst lyrics – city & colour

when i think of fates worse than death
all i can think of is something you said
you said we were golden, bright like the sun
and now i am stranded
knowing i’m not the one

an ocean of anger
flowing through me
blood stained and broken
from when i fell to sea
and just like a snake charmer
you led me astray
living in distress
hoping help is on the way

in the midst of a storm
searching for shelter
i came upon
one single feather
a half-hearted wish
for something better
gracefully cursed, i thirst

attached to the soil
i’m guiding the wool
as i am in my blood
yet so venerable
but after i’m gone
once i finally leave
you will be left alone
to the wolves and the thieves

in the midst of a storm
searching for shelter
i came upon
one single feather
a half-hearted wish
for something better
gracefully cursed, i thirst
gracefully cursed, i thirst
gracefully cursed, i thirst
i thirst
