Songs > Spires > Lyrics

You ask for a reason I'd say why
It tastes like treason outside
I've been retreating in rewind

Born in believing my right
There is no seething insight
I need to change my frame of mind

If I fall I'll land up
We’ve been retreating press rewind

I ask for meaning you'd say why
More than deceiving you'll try
We've been retreating, press rewind

Born in believing my right
There is no seeing insight
We've just a story to reread, not to rewrite

And the echo of a voice
Leaves you with no choice
When you should stay out

The sun it seems
Has lifted from my dreams
A better way to scream when you can't shout

What's done is done
It's true for everyone
Infrequency becomes the subject 'round you

Spelled out so plain
And the meanings still the same
If everyone complains the blame is on you

If I fall I'll land up
We’ve been retreating press rewind
