Lyrics

You can't feel the heat
Until you hold your hand
Over the flame
You have to cross the line
Just to remember
Where it lays

You won't know your worth now, son
Until you take a hit
And you won't find the beat
Until you lose yourself in it

That's why we won't back down
We won't run and hide
Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
I'm passing over you like a satellite
So catch me if I fall
That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines
But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
We are the orphans of the American dream
So shine your light on me

You can't fill your cup
Until you empty all it has
You can't understand what lays ahead
If you don't understand the past
You'll never learn to fly now
Till you're standing at the cliff
And you can't truly love
Until you've given up on it

That's why we won't back down
We won't run and hide
Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
I'm passing over you like a satellite
So catch me if I fall
That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines
But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
We are the orphans of the American dream
So shine your light on me

She told me that she never
Could face the world again
So I offered up a plan

We'll sneak out
While they sleep
And sail off in the night
We'll come clean and start over
The rest of our lives
When we're gone,
We'll stay gone
Out of sight,
Out of mind
It's not too late
We have the rest of our lives

We'll sneak out
While they sleep
And sail off in the night
We'll come clean and start over
The rest of our lives
When we're gone,
We'll stay gone
Out of sight,
Out of mind
It's not too late
We have the rest of our lives

The rest of our lives
Because we won't back down
We won't run and hide
Yeah, 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
I'm passing over you like a satellite
So catch me if I fall
That's why we stick to your game plans and party lines
But at night we're conspiring by candlelight
We are the orphans of the American dream
So shine your light on me

No, we won't back down
We won't run and hide
Yeah 'cause these are the things that we can't deny
I'm passing over you like a satellite
'Cause these are the things that we can't deny now
This is a life that you can't deny us now
