Anthem Lights - Boomerang Lyrics

I know heart has had enough
You've hit the wall but you still try to be tough
You swear nobody understands this hell that you're going through,
The nightmare that's coming true.
You tell your friends that you're okay, but,
that light inside of you is starting to fade.
You barely recognize yourself
You're lost and your so afraid
You don't have to be so brave.

Sometimes we just need to break down and feel.
Let go, take time so you can start to heal
Go on and throw it out, your luck will turn around.
Lose control,no,don't try to hold it in.
You will come back stronger this ain't the end.
You're gonna find your way,
You're like a boomerang.

Walk out the door and take a chance
Sometimes you gotta fall to see where you land.
Don't gotta have it figured out.
If you feel like giving up, just lean on the ones you love.
Even the sun goes sinking down, but,
You know tomorrow it'll rise from the ground.
Here in the rain it's hard to see
The place that you wanna be,
It's closer than you think.

Sometimes we just need to break down and feel.
Let go, take time so you can start to heal
Go on and throw it out, your luck will turn around.
Lose control,no,don't try to hold it in.
You will come back stronger this ain't the end.

You're gonna find your way,
You're like a boomerang. [x4]

I know your heart has had enough
You've hit your wall but you don't have to be tough.

Sometimes we just need to break down and feel.
Let go, take time so you can start to heal
Go on and throw it out, your luck will turn around.
Lose control,no,don't try to hold it in.
You will come back stronger this ain't the end.

You're gonna find your way,
You're like a boomerang. [x4]

  60. Glayd Loren

    I've been a fan of Anthem Lights when I hear about them a Christian Rock band and it really blesses me so much! and i've sharing your music to my friends here in Philippines telling them that God is using you to proclaim HIS word, but this album wasn't been the same from thier previous albums and it's just confusing now, honestly you guys really help me to build my relationship with Jesus with your songs and now it feels like being your part of the WORLD and not being as a LIGHT to it? i hope we will stand in our faith...

    im praying for you guys and hoping you'll continue to proclaim JESUS through your music! :)
    GOD BLESS!!!

  61. Mary Pawlicki

    this is an amazing song and I think everyone can relate to it because we are go through rough times our life. We have moments that we try to pretend that everything is ok when its not and this song reminds thats its ok to break down to give yourself time to heal.

  62. Eddie Cahill Fan

    This song speaks to me more than any other song ever has in my life. I've been going through some stuff for the past year and I've been cutting. This song makes me feel like God is speaking directly to me, telling me it's okay to break down sometimes, but He's also saying it won't always be this way, that my luck will turn around. 

  63. Migo uno o

    this is an amazing emotional song thanks for all your covers and all ur songs you inspire me so much

  64. Rocky Warner

  67. Home Dail

  68. Laura Catalan

    Love these songs so far but I really wish the album was more like "You Have My Heart" I think these songs are deviating from the purpose of the band. =(

  69. nohana hadjijamel

  73. ranielle macy

    @Jasmin Gonzales this song is for you..and for myself as well..

  74. Lauren D.

  82. Autumn culver

    You guys are awesome! You should do a cover of Carrie underwoods new song, something in the water.

  83. Palmer Kidz

  89. Grace Wong

    I find it really amazing reading all these comments about how this song came out at just the right time for them. It's so cool seeing how God works in these mysterious ways. This song is probably one of the most motivational songs ive heard in a long time

  90. Hannah Wright

    So far all the songs from Escape have had at least 3 lyrics that really speak to and encourage me. Thank you guys so much for making music that can impact lives. ily guys!

  91. Grace Rife

    OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS R AMAZING! I LOVE YOU ALL YOU INSPIRE ME AND JUST MAKE ME FEEL HAPPY!!! this song is sooo amazing and one of the best songs in my opinion! (even though every song is amazing)

  92. Jamie Gandy

    On July 9th of this year my dad went to Heaven. The past nearly three months have been so so hard on my mom, brother and I (even our dog). It's sometimes impossible to breathe and there isn't really many people we know that understands the width of our heartache. Our joy is knowing that he is with our Father in Heaven, where my dad has always longed to be. Our joy is knowing that he lived his life giving Glory to God and touching lives for His Glory. Our peace is knowing that when he entered Heaven Our Savior greeted him with a 'Well done my good and faithful servant.'
    But our sorrow is living the rest of our lives without him here. But our hope is knowing that when God calls us home he will be there to welcome us.

    This song speaks so deeply to me, like the words are written/spoken for me. And I thank you guys for sharing your talents with us.


    I hope you're doing better. Losing a family member is one of the hardest things someone can go through. Im truly sorry for your loss.

  93. My Drifting Imagination

    This is so inspirational!

  94. m hoek

    I love this song, and I just love your music, but what I dont like is that (until now) on this album theres not one song about God. When I listen to your first album, almost every song goes about God. It gives me the feeling that you guys have been changed. I really hope im wrong, but I hope that you read this, and that you want to think about it.
    Musically you're awesome! I'll keep on following you! May God show you the way He wants you to go. Greetzz

    Emma H.

    I think that even though they don't specifically mention God in the song, I think that the songs purpose is to lead people to god and maybe the song still honors God even if the lyrics don't directly talk about him ya know?

    Emma H.

    But I do see your point and I think it is a very good one.

    SugaisSweet •

    they said their message for this album is to bring good messages to people that some people don't show. or something like that.

    Ryan Warren

    There are a lot of Christian artist that don't talk about God directly. It's not like they don't, look at their last album, it was completely talking about giving your heart to God. 

  95. Laura Luykx

    Words can't describe how amazing, special and lovely this song is.

  96. Alizée André

    AMAZING !!!!

  97. Michelle Kaiser

    I love it!!!!!! Can't wait to get the entire album!!

  98. Patricia Dean

    You guys are simply amazing!! <3


    I love this song soo much and it has a helped my daughter with her problems

  100. trido022291
