lyrics

[Intro]
We all have secrets that we try to hide.
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love, that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.

[Verse 1]
I can be the tears on your face, erase me.
You're not afraid, no.
I'm the fears in your head, you gotta face me.
You're not afraid, no.
I can be the one to drive you mad, if you race me.
You're not afraid, no.
A goodbye you never said,
The letter you never kept,
The one you let fade,
The pain goes away, cause–

[Chorus]
We all have secrets that we try to hide.
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love, that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.
So, watch us grow stronger,
See us get bigger,
Cause there's power in numbers,
And no-ones being counted out.
Yeah no-ones being counted out.

[Verse 2]
Baby, I'm written on your hands,
And the words bleed.
I haven't even heard the word stop.
At the height of a roller-coaster ride,
When I'm living in your eyes,
Would you try to get off?
Take a one-way away from all the failure,
Forgetting all the danger, and try to move on.
Leave the bag that you brought,
There's no time for second thoughts.
If you let it all fade, the pain goes away, cause–

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
We have ourselves, not each-other.
We have our cells, we recover.
We may be weak,
Maybe way too strong,
But if you take that breath,
Keep calm and carry on.
Live a little bit,
Love a little more.
Have a laughing fit,
Tilt your head a little bit higher.

[Chorus]
We all have secrets that we try to hide,
We all have moments that we wanna rewind.
We gave away love that we'd love to take back.
And we've all left it in the past.
We gave away our cover with a broken heart,
We said we'd do it later and let down our guards.
Well when you do it once, there's no going back.
And we've all left it in the past, so–
Watch us grow stronger,
See us get bigger,
Cause there's power in numbers,
And no-one's being counted out.

No one's being counted out.
No one's being counted out.
