"If I Should Go Before You" (2015)

Woman lyrics - City and Colour

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I'm a fool guilty of old crimes
But you are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I'm a fool guilty of old crimes
But you are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand
Stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Woman
My love is never ending
Like a sea without a shore
Woman
I'm a fool guilty of old crimes
You are the one I adore
Woman
When the world has emptied
and the planet is covered in dust
I will stand
Stand beneath the silver moon rising
Waiting to resurrect our love

Northern Blues lyrics - City and Colour

I've got too much in front of me
And not enough left behind
I've got too much in front of me
I didn't leave enough behind

I can hear the devil whisper
Payin' no heed to what he says
I can hear the devil whisper
Staking no weight to his claim

And I'm all torn down
With these northern blues
Got my soul in want of
Some post-mortem truth
I keep rollin' on howling at the moon
But I'm all torn down
With these northern blues

I have no understanding
For standing outside of time
Three hundred thousand hours
Still I remain hungry for the light

The world is disappearing
Little by little
Day by day
Three hundred thousand hours
Still the weather it has not changed

And I'm all torn down
With these northern blues
Got my soul in want
Of some post-mortem truth
I keep rollin' on howling at the moon
But I'm all torn down
With these northern blues

I'm all torn down
With these northern blues
I'm all torn down

I keep rollin' on howling at the moon
But I'm all torn down
With these northern blues

Northern blues

Mizzy C lyrics - City and Colour

I keep recycling stories from my youth
That I've told before
Conversations with myself
Have become such a bore
Struggling to find the rhythm
In these blues of mine
I've been living out of focus
Bearing of life and lie

If I try to change direction
I might not find what I'm looking for
But this bitter disposition
Well now must surely run its course
Ooh

Now I've been given the gift of persistence
But it's become a curse
Unraveling backward
In the distance I heard a dirge
I can see a man
On his face there's no trace of time
There's a strange and mad idea I must find

If I try to change direction
I might not find what I'm looking for
But this bitter disposition
Well now must surely run its course
Ooh

I wanna change direction

If I try to change direction
I might not find what I'm looking for
But this bitter disposition
Well now must surely run its course

So if I try to change direction
I might not find what I'm looking for
But this bitter disposition
Well now must surely run its course

Ooh

If I Should Go Before You lyrics - City and Colour

If I should go
before you
When that long night comes
We'll meet in the ever after
Please don't follow me
into the sun

If you should cross
the white light
and find yourself
in the black
I'll be right there
behind you
You will have no need
to look back

And when the night
cries itself awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet again...

If I should go
before you
Into the great
unknown
I'll leave my ghost right
beside you
You won't have to wait
alone

And when the night
cries itself awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet...
Crying ourselves awake
Dying in the light of day
Our endless love
will remain
Until we meet again.

Killing Time lyrics - City and Colour

What if you're here when I'm not ready?
What if I'm not willing to listen?
I hope these devils never leave me
'Cos I keep taking what they're giving

Right now it feels like killing time
I'm running from the shadow of my former shadow's life
Sometimes I wonder if I was ever really there?
Right now it feels like killing time

Lately I've been thinking about
Just who I'm supposed to be
There are lines forming on my hands and face
Before today I have never seen

But right now it feels like killing time
I'm running from the shadow of my former shadow's life
Sometimes I wonder if I was ever really there?
Right now it feels like killing time

Killing time, oh
Killing time, oh
Oh

Right now it feels like killing time
I'm running from the shadow of my former shadow's life
Sometimes I think that I was never really there
Right now it feels like killing time

Wasted Love lyrics - City and Colour

Careless love
Quit pouring honey in my ears
You're speaking diamonds crystal clear
So far away I want you near

Crying out for more
Just a little more
Tied down on the floor
Like a prisoner of war
Oh, I've been down so long
Day is nearly gone
I must carry on
With this wasted love

Careless love
There's more to say than should be said
Can't get these words straight in my head
You make me feel so powerless

I'm crying out for more
Just a little more
Tied down on the floor
Like a prisoner of war
Oh, I've been down so long
Day is nearly gone
I must carry on
With this wasted love

Wasted love
Wasted love

Crying out for more
Just a little more
Tied down on the floor
Like a prisoner of war
Oh, I've been down so long
Day is nearly gone
I must carry on
With this wasted love

Wasted love
Wasted love

Runaway lyrics - City and Colour

I know I have earned it
But most days I don't feel like I deserve this
To the victim go the spoils, through this mortal coil
Oh how the years have been so kind to me

I found the permanent place
Where the skies are gold not grey
I can taste the salt on your skin
And feel the sunshine on my face
We're gonna run, gonna run, gonna runaway
From the day
We're gonna run, gonna run, gonna runaway
From the day

Finally free from the past
How long could a feeling like this last?
The road away from here
Is long and steep my dear
Oh how the years have been so kind to me

I found the permanent place
Where the skies are gold not grey
Where I can taste the salt on your skin
And feel the sunshine on my face
We're gonna run, we're gonna run, gonna runaway
From the day
We're gonna run, gonna run, gonna runaway
From the day

We're gonna run

I found the permanent plance
Where the skies are gold not grey

We're gonna run
We're gonna run

Ooh [x8]

Lover Come Back lyrics - City and Colour

Bound for trouble from the start
I've been walking through this old world in the dark
All along right by my side
There you were shining, my ray of light

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won't you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
Lover come back, lover come back to me

I'll never be as good as I'd like to be
Eternally restless refusing to believe
But I think that we missed our connection
I wanted to feel your affection
Until my final days

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won't you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
Lover come back, lover come back to me

I am warm enough yet I still shiver
I am fed but still I starve
You know me I am the great misgiver
Always waiting on the clouds to part

I sing lover come back, lover come back to me
Won't you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
So lover come back, lover come back to me

Lover come back, lover come back to me
Won't you ever come back, ever come back to me
How could I have been so foolish to let you leave
So lover come back, lover come back to me

Map Of The World lyrics - City and Colour

There is a map of the world
That lies upon my weary face
Each line representing a mile
I have traveled from place to place
The colours are fading
The edges are tattered
It's grown a little worn with age
There is a map of the world
That lies upon my weary face

That I cannot erase
I cannot erase
Ooh
I cannot erase

The current of life pulled me under
I was swept away
Expanding the distance between us
Every second to every day
I thought I had given
All I could offer
While trying to keep the dogs at bay
But the current of life pulled me under
I was swept away

Beneath the tidal wave
Beneath the tidal wave
Ooh
Beneath the tidal wave
Beneath the tidal wave
I will be erased

There is a map of the world
That lies upon my weary face
There is a map of the world
That lies upon my weary face

Friends lyrics - City and Colour

Here I am again
Trading in a group of friends
To hopefully make amends
With everything I've done wrong
A last ditch effort
To find something better
And leave well enough alone

I will wait for all the words of happiness
I will wait for all the words of jubilation
I will hope for just an ounce of confidence
To offer myself some sort of congratulations

There is a light I'm trying to find
Between the water and the open sky
I know that's where the wild winds blow
Through times of trouble
Or just a simple stumble
I can go and make some real good noise

Still I wait for all the words of happiness
Still I wait for all the words of jubilation
I will hope for just an ounce of confidence
To offer myself some sort of congratulations

I wanna live where the wild winds blow
I know
I wanna live where the wild winds blow
I know

Blood lyrics - City and Colour

I'd like to take my time
There's a good reason I must find
I want to put a few miles down
I'd like to feel my two feet on the ground

Another year's hard work done
I've paid for it with all of my blood
I've given you more than I'm worth
I want to dig my fingers into the earth

Because I know there's beauty buried beneath
The surface of what we seek
All hopes left unfound
They lie between the wish and the well

The sun is just rising up
Mother birds feeding their young
The light of a brand new day
I think we've finally found a home in this place

Now I know there's beauty buried beneath
The surface of what we seek
All hopes left unfound
They lie between the wish and the well

I know there's beauty buried beneath
There's beauty buried beneath
I know there's beauty buried beneath
There's beauty buried beneath
I know there's beauty buried beneath
(There's beauty buried beneath)

Now I know there's beauty buried beneath
The surface of what we seek
All hopes left unfound
They lie between the wish and the well

"The Hurry And The Harm" (2013)

The Hurry And The Harm lyrics - City and Colour

Everyone wants everything no matter the cost, we're longing to live in a dream.
But we can't let go to all that we think we know, this great escape until we give up the ghost.

But why are we so worried more about the hurry and less about the harm?
Always trying to conquer that which does not offer anything more than a broken heart.
Oh what a cost for love.

Only want oh simple things, mourning the loss and what could have been.
When did I let go to all that I use to know this grave mistake has left an absence of hope.

But why are we so worried more about the hurry and less about the harm?
Always trying to conquer that which does not offer anything more than a broken heart.

Oh what a cost for love [x4]

I'm going back to the start.

Harder Than Stone lyrics - City and Colour

Someday I will walk away
When time ain't drawing on me like a blade
Back turned to the setting sun
Leaving behind Toronto's incessant hum

‘Cause I was born and raised
To live beyond
The heft and weight
Of a world undone

But I don’t mean to be a bother
I don’t need you to take my burden away
And I ain’t afraid of dying
Cold and alone

Traipsing though the utter dark
Walking underneath the dead moonlight
Without any great concern
For what I’ve missed or how many bridges have burned

Like a bird who flies
Away from the North
My heart will roam
In search of warmth

But I don’t mean to be a bother
I don’t need you to take my burden away
And I ain’t afraid of dying
Cold and alone

When my time comes
When I was young
I didn’t know too much
I thought that I could rule the world

Then I grew up
And found out life was hard
Harder than stone
