​Sweet Resistance

This song is by Civil Twilight and appears on the album Holy Weather (2012).

Sweet resistance
Sweet resistance

We can't grow without getting old
We can't purchase bravery with gold
All of the dreams that we faced
Before the morning glow
Need darkness before they show

Comfort is overrated
Give me something faded
I've spent my life asleep
I want sweet resistance
(That's what I want)
Sweet resistance

I spent the night outside your door in the darkest evening
And in the morning you pushed me away and gave me no reason
But all of the ways that you run, all of the ways that you keep it going
I can't get enough

'Cause when all is said and done,
You can lay me down on a bed of sun
And I will accept my fate
As I pass through that gate
And all of the reasons that I felt alive in the first place
Will be in the next age
As I turn that page
Into another beautiful stage
Of sweet resistance

Sweet resistance
(You know that's what I want)

Comfort is overrated
Give me something faded

(Ooh)

'Cause when all is said and done you can lay me down on a bed of sun
And I will accept my fate
As I pass through that gate
And all of the reasons that I felt alive in the first place
I will see your face

Sweet resistance
(Be with me)
Sweet resistance
(Why won't you be with me?)
Sweet resistance
(Be with me)
Sweet resistance
(Ooh)
Sweet resistance
