about

I wrote this song when I was 16 and my brother (Connor Tempest-Roe) and I recorded it in an afternoon with the help of Wyshwood Studios.

lyrics

We were brave
We were strong
And we moved through the fiercest wrong
We could fight
To survive
When together, we would feel alive

Then the roses came down
And the rain fell hard to the ground
Then the sunshine melted away
And now my mind is an empty grave

And every single word you've ever said
It feels like a blow to the head
And every burning feeling deep within me
Wants to knock your wall right down, and set you free

I always knew
Before she came
That the power we had couldn't remain
And then she took you far away
And I never saw your face again
But I still miss you every day
I wanna talk to you but I don't know what to say
Cause you threw me, threw me away
And I don't know how much more I can take

And every single word you've ever said
It feels like a blow to the head
And every burning feeling deep within me
Wants to knock your wall right down, and set you free

We made the planet come alive
With our power and our sacrifice
And every frozen shard of ice
Shatters under your fiery knife
And your eyes flash and burn
I've made so many mistakes and I still need to learn
Oh, but, Darling, I will return
Because I always get the last word

And every single word you've ever said
It feels like a blow to the head
And every burning feeling deep within me
Wants to knock your wall right down, and set you free

And every single word he's ever said
It feels like a blow to the head
And every burning feeling deep within me
Wants to knock his wall right down, and set you free
