Boy & Bear Lyrics – Suck On Light

I didn’t even try to stand
My world was on fire now
And there was nothing I could do
There was nothing I could say
To persuade the wrongs to right themselves
I was swinging hard now
Just upon the edge of virtue
Move back again, move back

I was in a real dire state
I was in the most awkward of ways
With my head against the earth
I tried just to find peace of a mind undone
A mind undone

And now I’m moving with a quiet ease
Something inside me is changing
It’s stirring all the life in me, oh baby
Because there’s only so much weight you can bear alright
When you’re walking on ice
Now I’m doing it all wrong but it feels so right

It’s a sober sight
Your knuckles bared and white
It’s the flicker on the front line from a candle light
It’s the appetite
You gotta suck on light
And stand ya ground
So sue me I had a change of heart
I used to think that I could justify the waste of time it’s only mine
But I’m yet to find a vivid life without it

Now I’m moving through a lighter breeze
Something inside me is changing
It’s strange how all the colours bleed, oh baby
Cos a rolling stone can pick up some pace alright
When the mountains this high
Now I’m doing it all wrong but it feels so right

Now I’m moving with a quiet ease
Something inside me is changing
It’s stirring all the life in me, oh baby
Now I’m moving through a lighter breeze
Something inside me is changing
It’s strange how all the colours bleed
Oh baby

Cos I was in a real dire state
I was in the most awkward of ways
And with my head against the earth
I tried just to find peace
And I found some
Hell, I found some

I didn’t even try to stand
My world was on fire now
And there was nothing I could do
There was nothing I could say

And now I’m moving with a quiet ease
And something inside me is changing
