Burning Doves Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Behind a velvet rope, we hide in plain sight
We're dressed in black smoke and have our hands tied
She says I see you babe but we are both blind
Our bodies yearnin' for what we cannot find
The end is beginnin' and I'm fallin'
So take it or leave it cause I'm all in
Verse 2
We're too young to die today, to die today
But we're too broken to fly away, to fly away
'Cause we both know betta' than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're too young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves
Verse 3
You've been on your knees prayin' for so long
When you close your eyes the words do not come
The end is beginnin' and you're fallin'
So take it or leave it cause I'm all in
Verse 4
We're too young to die today, to die today
But we're too broken to fly away, to fly away
'Cause we both know betta' than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're too young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves
Verse 5
If you can show me, I can lift you up
And if you call my name, then I can see up
And I'm sorry, I'm sorry for the things we've done
We're fallin', we're fallin' from a burnin' sun
We flew too high lookin' for love
We knew the skies, but not well enough
Verse 6
We're too young to die today, to die today
But we're too broken to fly away, to fly away
'Cause we both know betta' than to set ourselves on fire
All in the name of love
We're too young to be afraid to fly like burnin' doves
