​Running Hands With the Night

This song is by The Joy Formidable and appears on the album Hitch (2016).

The first picture
Our first picture
Still for a second wrapped in a whisper with you
Viva the Seine!
Run the bridges
Go down these boulevards again
With you, they feel so different.

It's like nothing here, nothing starts

Then you and me, all at once

I'm asking, you're waiting
I'm smiling
To let you know
This city is calling
Springs open and holds me now
Running hands with the night

My shoulders, the streets
Pull me back in the light

You're gonna take me back
You're gonna take me back

Back to a place that I nearly forgot
I've been pulled lace
And I've felt over
I've felt pity's touch

Not just another day
Just another's luck
Look what it did to us
It's that slow arm of happiness, you and me holding on

I'm asking, you're waiting
I'm smiling
To let you know

This city is calling
Springs open and holds me now
Running hands with the night
My shoulders, the streets
Pull me back in the light

Ph just spend their time
Those empty rooms emptying, they take a while
But it's a quiet fall
Just slip away the last mark on the wall
I want to take a turn
I want to take this turn
End up sorry when midnight burns
Out of the window, out of this madness
Help me keep this chance together
It's slipping like rain on glass
It's slipping like a twisted dance
It's dying in an empty vase
It's dying 'cause you tried so hard
I'm calling home - there's no one waiting
But you wanna sleep when it all says nothing
And you wanna stop and the cord's been cut
'Cause you were never connected
It had already dropped
Got this pain in my chest
An arm that's numb
And he's waiting to be blown back
Back tot he sun where he belongs
I'm frightened
I'm frightened
That chance has drowned in grey
I'm closing, yeah
I'm closing
'Cause love has turned to pearls

And I said thank you for the one-way steps
They told me: "There's nothing left"
But they sent the salvos down
So nobody will mind
My orphaned heart got taken in
That wasn't a moment of kindness.

Little bird
Don't just sit there
Look long enough
There's sadness everywhere.
Open your eyes, feel something new, don't fall from the sky
Before this city finds you.

This city found you
In this city, you're not lost
This city found you
Carry on, carry on, 'cause I'm gone
This city found you
In this city, you're not lost
This city found you.
