Lyrics of Apocalypse by Cigarettes After Sex


You leapt from crumbling bridges watching cityscapes turn to dust

Filming helicopters crashing in the ocean from way above

 

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

 

Kisses on the foreheads of the lovers wrapped in your arms

You’ve been hiding them in hollowed out pianos left in the dark

 

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

 

Your lips

My lips

Apocalypse

Your lips

My lips

Apocalypse

Go and sneak us through the rivers flood is rising up on your knees

Oh please

Come out and haunt me

I know you want me

Come out and haunt me

 

Sharing all your secrets with each other since you were kids

Sleeping soundly with the locket that she gave you clutched in your fist

 

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

Got the music in you baby

Tell me why

You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

You've been locked in here forever and you just can't say goodbye

 

Oh

When you're all alone

I will reach for you

When you're feeling low

I will be there too
