The Song Of 01/23/2017: José González – Stay Alive

It should be self-explanatory.

There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colours don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone lean

Full lyrics:

José González – Stay Alive

[Refrain]
There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone mean

[Verse 1]
Sometimes there’s things a man cannot know
Gears won’t turn and the leaves won’t grow
There’s no place to run and no gasoline
Engine won’t turn
And the train won’t leave
Engines won’t turn and the train won’t leave

[Break 1]
I will stay with you tonight
Hold you close ‘til the morning light
In the morning watch a new day rise
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

[Verse 2]
Well the way I feel is the way I write
Nothing like the thoughts of the man who lies
There is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as the new days rise

[Break 2]
And I will wait for you tonight
You’re here forever and you’re by my side
I’ve been waiting all my life
To feel your heart as it’s keeping time
We’ll do whatever just to stay alive

[Bridge]
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as the new days rise

[Refrain]
There’s a rhythm in rush these days
Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade
Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams
In a world gone shallow
In a world gone mean

[Outro]
But there is a truth and it’s on our side
Dawn is coming
Open your eyes
Look into the sun as a new days rise
