Keane – Spiralling (Live At Jockey Club del Paraguay, Asunción, Paraguay / 2019) Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I’m waiting for my moment to come
I’m waiting for the movie to begin
I’m waiting for a revelation
I’m waiting for someone to count me in
Because now I only see my dreams in everything I touch
Feel their cold hands on everything that I love
Cold like some magnificent skyline
Out of my reach but always in my eye line

[Chorus 1]
Now we’re tumbling down
We’re spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We’re spiralling

[Verse 2]
I fashioned you from jewels and stone
I made you in the image of myself
I gave you everything you wanted
So you would never know anything else
But every time I reach for you, you slip through my fingers
Into cold sunlight, laughing at the things that I had planned
The map of my world gets smaller as I sit here
Pulling at the loose threads

[Chorus 1]
Now we’re tumbling down
We’re spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We’re spiralling

[Bridge]
Did you want to be a winner?
Did you want to be an icon?
Did you want to be famous?
Did you want to be the president?
Did you want to start a war?
Did you want to have a family?
Did you want to be in love?
Did you want to be in love?
I never saw the light
I never saw the light
I waited up all night
But I never saw the light

[Chorus 2]
When we fall in love
We’re just falling
In love with ourselves
We’re spiralling
We’re tumbling down
We’re spiralling
Tied up to the ground
We’re spiralling
