Hold me now, I am breaking
Eyes are raw, and bones are aching
Unclench my fists for the last time today
And wish our face would fade away

All of the hours, all of the sleepless nights
All of the worry, trapped under blinded lights
All of the faces, blank as the room is bright
We´ll take it all, just to prove wrong from right
Just to prove wrong from right

Just like birds on the wire
Strung out but never tired
When the flames grow higher
We´ll soar up from the fire and start again

All of the hours, all of the sleepless nights
All of the worry, trapped under blinded lights
All of the faces, blank as the room is bright
We´ll take it all, just to prove wrong from right

And we´ll hold our hope
Keep your back from the rope
And we´ll save our sorrow, ´til we know, ´til we know
They´re going to send us home

Just like birds on the wire
Strung out but never tired
As the flames grow higher
We´ll soar up from the fire and start again

And we´ll hold our hope
Keep your back from the rope
And we´ll save our sorrow, ´til we know, ´til we know
They´re going to send us home

And we´ll hold our hope
Keep your back from the rope
And we´ll save our sorrow, ´til we know, ´til we know
They´re going to send us home

Just like birds on the wire

All of the hours, all of the sleepless nights
All of the worry, trapped under blinded lights
All of the faces, blank as the room is bright
We´ll take it all, just to prove wrong from right
Just to prove wrong from right

Hold me now, I am breaking
Eyes are raw, and bones are aching
When the night feels like it´s closing in
You hold a light up and we´ll start again
