Underneath The Petal

The Joy Formidable - Underneath The Petal

Underneath the petal I lay down
Caught myself a shadow, followed a cloud
All of these things that pull you away
All of these things that make you change
I'll play you a song as sweet as can be
These notes in the dark are for you and me

Come while the day is still ours and make me yours
Before the sky gets flooded, darkness falls
Why does this bad blood flow at the end
Surprises like oil then sits on a bend
Makes me think you're standing in my light
It's hard feeling beaten when your hearts become silent

Underneath the petal, it's all mine

That search for something more
When it's already in the stone
We'll be alright now
We've got our own way
And it plays around like thunder on a clear day
Underneath a promise I fell down

You looked so much happier than you do right now
Those drowning eyes won't carry me
That stranger's way won't make me leave
Underneath the petal, it's all fine
Underneath the petal, it's all mine

Coming up, look around
I'm going back, crossing off what's in front of me
I'll stay here, leave the world at my feet.
