Lyrics

Oh! (Hey, hey, hey, hey!) x6

Tell me, what does it take to let go
How many years do you wait?
Oh, and now, all of the clouds are combining,
That flickering light's just a flame.

Oh, but yeah,
I'm so tired
I've been away for so many years
But I guess I'll just wait a bit longer
I'll stay 'til they open the gates

Oh, but yeah,
All my life, I've stayed here waiting
Every new year always making
Feel as though there's nothing up there
But one day you came out of nowhere

1985 was a good year,
The sky broke apart then you appeared
Out from the heavens, they called me a dreamer
I won't lie I knew you belonged here

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down,
Because 1985 was a good year
I won't lie I knew you belonged here

Oh! (Hey, hey, hey, hey!) x2

Well, how many years has it been now?
How many days went to waste?
Now the rain and the thunder are clashing,
The sun's got a smile 'cross the face

Oh, but yeah,
I'm so tired
I fight so hard and come back beating
Beacon, burn through it brightly
The soul through a sliver of space

All my life, I've stayed here waiting
Every new year always making
Feel as though there's nothing up there
But one day you came out of nowhere

1985 was a good year,
The sky broke apart then you appeared
Out from the heavens, they called me a dreamer
I won't lie I knew you belonged here

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down,
Because 1985 was a good year
I won't lie I knew you belonged here

Lifted up,
Lift us back to the sky and the world above
Lifted up,
Lifted up,

1985 was a good year,
The sky broke apart then you appeared,
Out from the heavens, they called me a dreamer

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down,
Because 1985 was a good year
I won't lie I knew you belonged here
