Here Comes the Flood – Lyrics

VERSE 1

I could never give up on you cause

You were everything I’d hold on to boy

And all those feelings that I hide

They’re like a bird in the night

I close my eyes and fall

Lately I have been chasing shadows

Feels like I’ve been shooting broken arrows

And all the letters that I write

They’re like a fire in the night

Just let it burn away

 

 

PRE-CHORUS

And there is nothing in the world that I

Would ever give up for you my baby

Don’t speak, I’ve lost my self possession

 

CHORUS

Here comes the flood

Burning in my Veins

Sending the whole world to Hades

I never thought that we would end up like this

Here Comes the Flood

Burning in my Heart

And now we’ll always be apart

Never thought that I would miss you but I do so, oh, oh

Here comes the Flood

 

 

VERSE 2

Always thought it was a simple question

Life and death didn’t enter the equation

But now I know better than that

And I just wanna be bad,

wanna set the world on fire

You know karma’s coming out to get ya

All the dumb and crazy things that you do

Are written down in the book of life

And not even your golden lies

can bribe it all away

 

 

PRE-CHORUS

And there is nothing in the world that I

Would ever give up for you my baby

Don’t speak, I’ve lost my self possession

 

CHORUS

Here comes the flood

Burning in my Veins

Sending the whole world to Hades

I never thought that we would end up like this

Here Comes the Flood

Burning in my Heart

And now we’ll always be apart

Never thought that I would miss you but I do so, oh, oh

Here comes the Flood

 

 

BRIDGE

And the day turns to night

And my heart turns to Ice

And I stand here wasting all my tears on you

You call my name,

gotta tell you again

I’m not waiting for you to call

 

 

CHORUS

Here comes the flood

Burning in my Veins

Sending the whole world to Hades

I never thought that we would end up like this

Here Comes the Flood

Burning in my Heart

And now we’ll always be apart

Never thought that I would miss you but I do so, oh, oh

Here comes the Flood
