LIGHT THIS CITY lyrics : "Beginning With Release"

Beginning With Release
Second chances only create
Even more seconds to wait.

Everyone starts over, turns a new leaf,
But you're weak, and even the weight
Proves much too heavy for a pest like yourself,

Especially when you're already burdened
With a chip on your shoulder
That cuts as deep as her treachery


[Chorus]
And this release,

It won't be the end for me.
Our tug of war taught me
Resilience and a few more things

I was only armed for battle, you see,
But I didn't lose because I'm not lost
And you have to be strong to keep holding on,

But it takes strength of mind, to know when to release.

Is there a life, without forgiveness?

If I release, will I still remember?
I was only armed for battle, you see,
But I didn't lose because I'm not lost,

And you have to be strong to keep holding on,
But it takes strength of mind to know when to release.


You've been saving all your pennies just to flip the coin.
Well, heads up high roller,
All you're going to see is tails as you watch me leave.

I never was your Lady Luck,
And I'm $#[email protected] done, being your second best.
No need to worry about me;

I'll bounce back from this with ease
What a shame you won't be so lucky
Cause you're not going up, and you're not going down,

You'll just waver back and forth,
Still impossible to please.
Cause you're not going up, and you're sure as $#[email protected] not going down,

You'll just waver back and forth,
Still impossible to please.


[Chorus]
And this release,
It won't be the end for me.

Our tug of war taught me
Resilience and a few more things.
I was only armed for battle, you see,

But I didn't lose because I'm not lost
And you have to be strong to keep holding on,
But it takes strength of mind, to know when to release.


Is there a life, without forgiveness?
If I release, will I still remember?

I was only armed for battle, you see,
But I didn't lose because I'm not lost,
And you have to be strong to keep holding on,

But it takes strength of mind to know when to release.

[x2]

(You say)you say, but we've only just begun.
And I say, our beginning is done.
You never should have left,

No, you never should have come.
