Lyrics

[Verse One]
If I told you about my favorite dream
The one without you
Would you spit fire at me
Or would you burn to know
Every single by blow?
I don't know her
Maybe she isn't real
She didn't hold back
When you were lying next to me

[Pre-Chorus]
This can't be all we are
Silent and in the dark

[Chorus]
We could be making sparks
But we don't ignite, don't ignite
We could be making sparks
But we need to fight, need to fight

[Verse Two]
Come a little closer
Remember when we used to sway
Trembling in the covers
Taking it with an only grey

[Pre-Chorus]
This can't be all we are
Silent and in the dark

[Chorus]
We could be making sparks
But we don't ignite, don't ignite
We could be making sparks
But we need to fight, need to fight

[Bridge]
No I never saw the walls
Falling on us like this
Now I'm hanging from a rope
Holding my hope, my hope
I don't need it, I just want it more than anything else
I can do this alone

No, no
We could be making sparks
But we don't ignite, don't ignite

[Chorus]
We could be making sparks
But we don't ignite, don't ignite
We could be making sparks
But we need to fight, need to fight
