James Bay - Us Lyrics

Sometimes I'm beaten, sometimes I'm broke
'Cause sometimes this city is nothing but smoke
Is there a secret? Is there a code?
Can we make it better? 'Cause I'm losing hope

Tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us

After the wreckage, after the dust
I still hear the howling, I still feel the rush
Over the riots, above all the noise
Through all the worry I still hear your voice

So tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
Tell me when the light goes down
That even in the dark we will find a way out
Tell me now 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us

We used to be kids living just for kicks
In cinema seats learning how to kiss
Running through streets, they were painted gold
We never believed we'd grow up like this

So tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
Tell me when the light goes down
That even in the dark we will find a way out
Tell me now 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
I believe in something
I believe in us

  8. Emilyy

    Ive come to love this song very much along with 'beige'. The movies After and soon to be After we collided have so far changed me in a way. i can relate to the backstories of Hero and Josephine as Hardin Scott and Theresa/ Tessa Young. I love they way the movie brings me great warmth in a way. That is it :)

    Last year my aunt died of cancer, it was hard seeing her in the hospital. I was at the beach and I got the news that she passed, I couldn’t stop feeling sad and frustrated about her death, no one deserved such an ugly illness specially someone who hasn’t done anything bad in her life. I was listening to this song while everything happened it help me healed and let it all out. Thank you James
