Editors – Papillon

Make our escape, you’re my own Papillon
The worlds turns too fast
Feel love before it’s gone

It kicks like a sleep twitch!
My Papillon, feel love when it’s shone
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Darling, just don’t put down your guns yet,
if there really was a God here,
he’d have raised a hand by now.
Darling, you were born but you will die here,
that’s quite enough for me too,
we’ll find our own way home somehow.

No sense of doubt, for what you can achieve,
I’d help you out, I’ve seen the life you wish to leave
Well it kicks like a sleep twitch!
You will choke, choke on the air you try to breathe.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Darling, just don’t put down your guns yet,
if there really was a God here,
he’d have raised a hand by now.
Darling, you’re born, get old, and die here.
well that’s quite enough for me too,
we’ll find our own way home somehow, Papillon!

It kicks like a sleep twitch!
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Darling, now just don’t put down your guns yet,
if there really was a God here,
he’d have raised a hand by now!
Darling, you’re born, get old, and die here.
well that’s quite enough for me,
we’ll find our own way home somehow.
It kicks like a sleep twitch!
Aah [x4]
It kicks like a sleep twitch!

Editors – Ocean Of Night

Wasting on nothing
Effortlessly, you appear
Sound of the thunder
Reverberate in your ears
This is a slow dance
This is the chance to transform
Pause for the silence
In habit, the calm of the storm

This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night
This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night

Love is a feeling
Buried with me in the yard
Gaze at the skyline
Under the ocean of stars
This is your slow dance
And this is your chance to transform
Lost to a moment
The moment you confront the storm

This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night
This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night

I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire
I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire
I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire
I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire
I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire
I am your hope down the wire
So you can hold back the fire

This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night
This is your ocean, an ocean of night
This is the notion, your ocean of night

Ocean of night
Ocean of night
Ocean of night
Ocean of night

Editors – No Sound But The Wind

We can never go home
We no longer have one
I’ll help you carry the load
I’ll carry you in my arms
The kiss of the snow
The crescent moon above us
Our blood is cold
And we’re alone
But I’m alone with you

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me to carry the fire
It will light our way forever

If I say shut your eyes
If I say look away
Bury your face in my shoulder
Think of a birthday
The things you put in your head
They will stay here forever
Our blood is cold
And we’re alone, love
But I’m alone with you

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me to carry the fire
It will light our way forever

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Now help me to carry the fire
It will light up our way forever

If I say shut your eyes
If I say shut your eyes
Bury me in surprise
Where I say shut your eyes

Help me to carry the fire
We will keep it alight together
Help me carry the fire
It will light our way forever

Editors – Life Is A Fear

Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

Wait around here long enough, you’ll see
Another junction, line up and lay down for me
You fall wonderfully
If I question everything you say
Another answer crumbles, the birth of my day
Is when you appear

You, calling out a name
You, swimming to me through a dream

Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

Every siren often my lullaby
Every heartbeat functioning thrown to the night
I’m quenched in your light
And see the floor rising through a dream
Forgotten thoughts lost in a memorable theme
And soaked to the skin

You, calling out a name
You, swimming to me through a dream

Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

And I wanted life to be that
And I wanted life to be that

You, calling out a name, oh
You, swimming to me through a dream

Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

Life is a fear of falling
Life is a fear of falling through
All the cracks

Editors – A Ton Of Love

I lit a match in Vienna tonight,
It caused a fire in New York.
Where is my self-control?

You gotta learn to be thankful,
For the things that you have.
Now bathe my idle soul in

Desire,
Desire,
Desire,
Desire.

Taken by force,
Twisted fate,
Well, what weighs more,
Down on your plate.

A ton of love,
A ton of hate,
We’re waiting for,
A chance of, a chance of, a chance of

Desire,
Desire,
Desire,
Desire.

I don’t trust the government,
I don’t trust myself,
What is a boy gonna do?

Build a church in the city,
A place to crawl with our own,
We’ll give our God away.

Taken by force,
Twisted fate,
Well, what weighs more,
Down on your plate.

A ton of love,
A ton of hate,
We’re waiting for,
A chance of, a chance of, a chance of.

Desire,
Desire,
Desire,
Desire, desire.

Desire,
Desire,
Desire,
Desire.

Taken by force,
Twisted fate,
Well, what weighs more,
Down on your plate.

A ton of love,
A ton of hate,
We’re waiting for,
A chance of, a chance of, a chance of…
