Joy Formidable, The - What For Lyrics




Across all this land
I can't see what's real
And the sun has bleached, the wind has bent
What you were feeling

Is this the way it goes
Turning nothing into waterfalls
Sink in the heavy flow
I can't deny what the shore will wash up
I'm waiting, I'm waiting What For

How long am I on trial
'Cause I've been good and bad
Why don't you run the mountain
And let go of the path

Is this the way it goes
Turning nothing into waterfalls
Sink in the heavy flow
I can't deny what the shore will wash up
I'm waiting, I'm waiting what for

Take your bleeding heart
And go back to the start, I'm staying here
I'm down on my luck, but I know which ways up
I'm not taking my turn this way

So when the winter breaks
Throw your mind this way
And when the bridges fall
And the sun it fades
I see the burning lake
Oh that's you and me
I see we're all the same
Just waiting, just waiting what for
What for
Ooh, what for

  70. lars

    This much delight, fills columns to new heights
    All these things about me you never can tell
    Colors run prime, paint a picture so bright
    All these things about me you never can tell
    You make me sleep so badly invisible friend

    Turn the dial on my words
    I can feel them fall short
    Turn the dial, chime alarm, chime alarm
    Watch these hands move apart
    Turn the dial on my words

    I can see you staying here

    Fierce steps shadow, life's will gone shallow
    All these things about me you never can tell
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend
    You make me sleep so badly, invisible friend

    Turn the dial on my words
    I can feel them fall short
    Turn the dial, chime alarm, chime alarm
    Watch these hands move apart
    Turn the dial on my words

    I can see you staying here

  71. Piero5711

    I love you The Joy Formidable <3
