Better learn how to kneel (...on your knees boy!)

She's the wave
She turns the tide
She sees the man inside the child chorus x4

Car alarm
Won't wrench him back to sleep(???)
You kept awake
Dreaming someone else's dream
Coffee is cold
But it'll get you through
Compromise
That's nothing new to you
Let's see colors that have never been seen
Let's go to places no one else has been

Verse 3
It's hot as hell, honey, in this room
Sure hope the weather will break soon
The air is heavy, heavy as a truck
Hope the rain will wash away our bad luck
The sky can crack
There must be some way back
For love and only love
Electrical storm

Electrical storm
Baby don't cry
Baby don't cry
Oh baby don't cry
Oh baby don't cry
