Lyrics Edit

Take me down
I’m feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you’re gone
I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah, I’ll hold you in my arms

You’re locked inside my heart
Your melody’s an art
I won't let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Step and repeat
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through pain
Feel the acid rain
I ain’t ready
But I’ll hold steady
Yeah, I’ll hold you in my arms, in my arms, in my arms

And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
And I won't let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

My bags heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them round
It’s all mine, all mine
I am blinded by the eye of the needle

And you’re locked inside my heart
And your melody’s an art
But I won't let the terror in, I’m stealing time
Through the eye of the needle, eye of the needle

You're locked inside my heart
And your melody's an art
And I won't let the terror in, I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle
