Athlete - Wires Lyrics

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
You got tears, making tracks
I got tears, that are scared of the facts

Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

You got wires, going in
You got wires, coming out of your skin
There's dry blood, on your wrist
Your dry blood on my fingertip

Running, down corridoors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know

I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright
I see it in your eyes, I see it in your eyes
You'll be alright


Running, down corridors through, automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
I see hope is here, in a plastic box
I've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes
down corridors, through automatic doors
Got to get to you, got to see this through
First night of your life, curled up on your own
Looking at you now, you would never know.

    It makes me cry beacause I lost my nana

  5. Darci Scott

    I was born at 28 wks. 39 years ago. The first time that I heard this song, I thought that it was a song about premature babies. I love this song. It def. describes what parents go through when they have a premature baby. This song def. reminds me of the stories that I was told about when I was a baby.

    AimeAcheCey MHC

    I'm sorry for your loss 😞

  49. Scott Appleton

    Omg never in my life have I ever related to a song as much as this, our son was born needing open heart surgery during the Christmas period, every word of this song brings those dark days back. But he's OK now but omfg this song is exactly what we went through..

    Martyn Beeby

    So pleased to hear your son is ok. We had our own traumatic experience of a birth at Christmas and had a very poorly little boy. Our son is now a healthy and happy 11 month old. This song came to me instantly and has been a great comfort and like you, is exactly what we went through, right down to the Christmas lights reflecting in his eyes. The lyrics are framed in his bedroom.

  50. Michelle Denny

    This always makes me think of my son when he was in the special care baby unit.He's now 23 and a big gentle giant with a B.A. degree. and taking his masters at uni.

    lilith Faith

    This makes me think of my two boys who were premature. Brings back that intense rollorcoster of emotions but a beautiful song x

  51. Mr Invisible

    I have listened to all of the songs of this band. Totally underrated.
    Can someone please tell me a similar band?
    Please, it's a request.

    David Coates

    the lead singer is the co-writer for every george ezra song... so i guess start there

    Mr Invisible

    @David Coates thanks buddy!

  52. Mr Flibble

    I guess some people would call them Coldplay/Keane rip offs but honestly this song has something about it which makes it stand out from so many other bands. I can't put my finger on it, it's just got this melancholy sense of epicness that I'm kinda in love with.

    Mr Invisible

    I agree.

  53. Mark McLaughlan

    Why so few views?, thought it would be millions.

  54. Sharon Naylar

    Beautiful but painful

  55. Earth of Space

    All I know, Tony never had makings of a varshity athlete.

  56. Amanda Mitchell

    The first time I heard this I got absolute chills. Took me straight back to when my second son was born prematurely and was in SCBU for 10 days. Still makes me cry each time I hear it. So beautiful - thank you.

    Kristen Snyder

    I cry every time I hear this song too. My daughter was born premature too and spent a month in the NICU. Hope you and your son are well and healthy!

    Amanda Mitchell

    @Kristen Snyder We are - thank you! Hope it's the same for you x

  57. Ashley Laughran

    Still fkn amazing

  58. Neil Mclennan

    Great song.

  59. Rafaela Katllen

    The vampires diaries

  60. O P

    when I listen to this song I think about how I was in hospital with wires, wires, wires going in and coming out of my body to keep me functioning in every way imaginable, I think about how I went through all of those times ALONE, and how if anyone else was going through the same, I would make sure they were NEVER alone. So it reminds me of lying in a hospital bed recovering from death itself, and then almost dying again and again and again, and how whenever I woke up from surgery, no one was there holding my hand, and if it was ever happening to anyone I loved, I would do whatever I could to be right there beside them, so they never had to wake up and see an empty hall way or room, or wherever you happen to be left after a major surgery. It is one of the worst feelings in the world to know as a child that you mean nothing to the people you care about, to the parents that should have been there, but chose to abandon you instead. I hope no one else has to feel it. Which is why, if I knew someone would have to wake up alone from something similar, I'd make sure they saw a friendly face or at the very least knew I had done everything in my power to be there in some way!

  61. Aditya Kumar Yadav

  87. Joe Williams

    Takes on average 14 seconds for tears to form in my eyes listening to this song

  88. Dan Boys

    15 years ago my baby boy, 2 weeks old, was rushed into intensive care. The nurse cried when we asked if he would be ok. 2 weeks later they worked out what was wrong and they fixed him. We banned music for the whole time he was in hospital and the first song I heard when we turned on the radio was this. I still can't listen to it without crying my eyes out. Today, he is big and strong and full of life. Thank you NHS.

  89. Tomcat 22

    Beautiful song.

  90. Jennifer Jenny

    Am thinking to Jeremy when i listening to this songg !!!❤️🖤

  91. Jess Ward

    When I hear this song it reminds me of my son and his birth, it's very hard for me to listen to it, It was difficult for me and my wife as he was born premature and needed resussitating, he was then put into neonatal, he was tiny, I had to leave him that night and it was one of the hardest things I had to do, my wife couldn't see him for 2 days because she was so weak. He''s now a very happy fun loving 3y/o, when things like that happen it puts things into perspective and really makes you appreciate life

    Martyn Beeby

    I can totally relate to this. My wife's uterus ruptured at 35 weeks and my son fell into the abdomen. Both my wife and son were moments away from losing their lives. He spent two weeks on neo-natal with premature lungs. It was just before Christmas and this song suddenly came to me. So much of it resonated with our situation and how I was feeling. It was hard to listen to for the first time, but it was also a great comfort "I see it in your eyes, you'll be alright". My son is now a happy 11-month-old. I'm very happy to hear your son is doing so well too

  92. Poppy Sedgwick

    Yes it’s about a premature baby is that right

  93. Elen Thomas

    My mum would play this song to everyday so I would remember it because I caught meningitis when was 2 weeks old and it was touch and go for a while I was also born with serious respiratory problems and had to be admitted to a special care unit I also had lots of surgeries to try and figure out what was wrong. Early last year I really struggled with depression and anxiety and started injuring myself I listened to this song a lot throughout that tough time. This song has a lot of meaning and memories attached to it for me x

    Joseph Dolman

    I relate to this song too I was born with epilepsy and developed meningitis as well when I was a baby lucky to be alive today 26 and going strong my dad told me this song reminds him of the time I spent in hospital.
