lyrics

Down our chimney we fall
Upon it and stared
So tired and cold
We never woke up
Into the sky
Glows our wicked lie
Trembling 'til the ground
Swallows all the sound

Look, I'm running on my own
I'm gonna make friends
I'm gonna find peace
I'll do it again
It's all so brand new
I'm gonna find love
I'm gonna do it all
The world's in my hand
I see it so clear
The future's so near
I've waited so long
To go where I belong
I know this is alright
My destiny's in sight
I'm gonna be there
I'm gonna be

And if I don't come back there's a
Box beneath my mattress that will
Answer any questions you may
Have about the past year
Well, I think that maybe I am
Not quite as well off as I think
I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I ever could

Down our chimney we fall
Upon it and stared
So tired and cold
We never woke up
Into the sky
Glows our wicked lie
Trembling 'til the ground
Swallows all the sound

Look, I'm running on my own
I'm gonna make friends
I'm gonna find peace
I'll do it again
It's all so brand new
I'm gonna find love
I'm gonna do it all
The world's in my hand
I see it so clear
The future's so near
I've waited so long
To go where I belong
I know this is alright
My destiny's in sight
I'm gonna be there
I'm gonna be

And if I don't come back will you
Please tell my mom and dad that they're
Gonna be alright without me
Everyday's a mystery
And I think that maybe I am
Not quite as well off as I think
I don't know if I can do it
I don't know if I ever can

And if I don't come back, you'll see
It's better to keep this lesson
Wrapped inside me for so long
You can't teach them a single thing
Well, I think that maybe I am
Not quite as well off as I think
I don't know if I can do it
But I finally get to try

Down our chimney we fall
Upon it and stared
So tired and cold
We never woke up
Into the sky
Glows our wicked lie
Trembling 'til the ground
Swallows all the sound
