Underneath the Petal

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

Underneath the petal, I lay down
Caught myself a shadow, followed a cloud
All of these things that pull you away
All of these things that make you change
I'll play you a song as sweet as can be
These notes in the dark are for you and me.

Come while the day is still ours and make me yours
Before the sky gets flooded, darkness falls
Why does this bad blood flow at the end
Surprises like oil and then sits on a bend
Makes me think you're standing in my light
It's hard feeling beaten when your heart's become silent
Underneath the petal, it's all mine

That search for something more
Well it's already in the stone
We'll be all right now
We've got our own way
And it plays around
Like thunder on a clear day

Underneath a promise, I fell down
You looked so much happier than you do right now
That stranger's way will make me leave
Underneath the petal, it's all fine
Underneath the petal, it's all mine
Coming up
Look around
I'm going back, crossing off what's in front of me
I'll stay here, leave the world at my feet.
