Lyrics

Wire and Thorns

Written By: Jake Morrell

Wire and Thorns

V1: Always stuck here,
waiting for those lights to change.
Suffocating, hands are shaking
under rocks and rubble.

Pre: As I stumble trying not to fall,
making my way through wire and thorns
to you. Where have you gone?
As I stumble trying not to fall,
making my way through wire and thorns
to you. Where are you now?

Chorus: Will you wait for me,
as I try to battle through.
Will you wait for me,
because I’m slightly overdue.
Will you wait for me,
as the world falls apart.
Will you wait for me,
or will you break my heart.

V2: Never listening,
to the stories that you tell me.
Never thinking,
always drinking my sweet whiskey.

Pre: As I stumble trying not to fall,
making my way through wire and thorns
to you. Where have you gone?
As I stumble trying not to fall,
making my way through wire and thorns
to you. Where are you now?

Chorus: Will you wait for me,
as I try to battle through.
Will you wait for me,
because I’m slightly overdue.
Will you wait for me,
as the world falls apart.
Will you wait for me,
or will you break my heart.

Bridge: Will you break my heart
Will you break my heart,
Will you break my heart
Will you break my heart ..

Slow Chorus:
Will you wait for me, as I try to battle through.
Will you wait for me, exactly how you do.
Will you wait for me, as the world falls apart.
Will you wait for me, or will you break my heart.
End

Fear Struck Wild

Written By: Jake Morrell

Fear Struck Wild

V1: Lost, and afraid,
we were hungry
full of pain,
the sky was red,
with a threat of dark,
the wind felt cold,
like it’d lost its heart

Chorus: & you said run boy run,
as fast as you can,
the dark is coming, soon,
with its icy hand
and you might make it home
if you run boy run, alone.

V2: I said no i won’t leave her,
for fear had deceived her,
I said you will come with me
we’ll make it back in time for tea
she just smiled,
fear struck wild

Chorus: & you said run boy run,
as fast as you can,
the dark is coming, soon,
with its icy hand
and you might make it home
if you run boy run, alone.

Bridge: Soon the dark upon us
wrapped us in its shadowy cloak
two kids in the darkness
struggling for hope
Then a voice of inspiration
no time, hesitation she said ….

Chorus: & you said run boy run,
as fast as you can,
the dark is coming, soon,
with its icy hand
and you might make it home
if you run boy run, alone.

Outro: Run boy run, Run boy run, Run boy run

End.
