The Starting Line

This song is by Keane and appears on the album Strangeland (2012).

This town was our lovers' stage
But now you can't recognise
The streetlights that are daggers to your eyes

You can't find your bearings
You're slipping into the ground
The scene has no colour and no sound

Do you still believe in me
After the things I've done?
Do you fear for what we have become?

The ground is uneven
We stumble from day to day
But shelter where it's easy
I know your feet are like lead
But you've got to get underway

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me

Each heart is a paper kite
Blown around by the breeze
Love won't rest 'til it brings you to your knees

Some find it easy
Some will never even know
You think you've done your journey
Then you stumble and find
That there's such a long way to go

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
You want to be lost and not be found
But let's take the back way into town
And drink to the bad times
Lay them down on me

Girl, I still believe in you
You're too good to fall so low
We're going to find a better life, I know

Things will be clearer
And soon as we make a start
We'll be that much nearer
We're too old to just stand here
Waiting to break apart

Drag your heart up to the starting line
Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you've been kicked around
But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me
On me, on me
