Lyrics

[Verse 1]

It's been a long time, so long

There's only one life I know (I know)

But I have my own mind

I'll say so if it seems right (air rush out)

I see your warm face with the soft mouth

But it speaks something else (else)

I'll take my chances with the cast down

We can feel the air...

[Chorus]

Rush out, out from the center

Not like one side is any better

Stand up as they bend, reaching

My best theory?

It’s already in me

In me

[Break]

(We can feel, we can feel the air rush out)

[Verse 3]

So many questions

And the answers come back unanswered

Let's hold the old script

It's a new twist

You can feel the air...

[Chorus] Rush out, out from the center Not like one side is any better Stand up as they bend, reaching My best theory? It’s already in me

[Bridge] In a lonely, real place Neither part nor mistake Love what you have with your time By dousing, find my true desire My threat, my appetite (My true desire)


I feel the air...

[Chorus] Rush out, out from the center Not like one side is any better Stand up as they bend, reaching My best theory? It’s already in me Rush out, out from the center

Not like one side is any better Stand up as they bend, reaching My best theory? It’s already in me In me
