Lyrics

You Kind Of Remind Me

Written By: Swandive

You kind of remind me of someone else
Someone familiar, but not yourself
You come in here wearing your pretty face
Looking to make your great escape

You kind of remind me of someone else
With those little secrets all to yourself
Youre making your way through this great unknown
Looking for something to call your own

Dont You Know?
Dont You Know?

You can have it if you want it
Fall into the light of purpose
Run, dont walk, the scene is changing
Listen to the sound.

You kind of remind me of someone else
It may be coincidence but I cant tell
Youre making it up as you go along
Convincing yourself that you belong

Dont You Know?
Dont You Know?

In The Fire

Written By: Swandive

I've seen the magic one moonlight in her eyes
Let's go you and me, vanish in the night
It's you that I see when I try
And it's your kiss I cannot deny

Shout it out girl it's you that blows my mind
Send it all away gonna start from the inside
It's you that I see when I try
And it's your kiss I cannot deny

Take me in the fire
Take me in the fire

I've seen the magic one moonlight in her eyes
Let's go you and me vanish in the night
It's you that I see when I try
And it's your kiss I cannot deny
