​Words & Fire

This song is by Sam Roberts and appears on the album Love At The End Of The World (2008).

Original video
These words don't come easy
They spit from my lips
But then we never had it easy
It slipped from our fingertips

When we met, you laughed at me
And stole my last cigarette
Said you wanted to share a past with me
That tomorrow's the day to forget
And you said,

"Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on"

Now I've come unhinged
I'm the door in a frame
Well I'm never quite closed
But I ain't open to change

So my knuckles are bruised
From knocking on wood
Well, it's a trick that I've used
Perhaps more than I should
And I said,

"Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on"

'Cause a heart is just a heart
It can break and fall apart
It can bleed and stop and start
'Cause a heart is just a heart

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Mix your words with fire
I'll let them burn me down
Let them ring in the air
Like the bells of an old mining town

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on

Just give me a reason to carry on
To carry on
I just want a reason to carry on
To carry on
