Lifted Up (1985)
Passion Pit

Lyrics


Tell me, what does it take to make good now?
How many years do you wait?
Oh, and now
all of the clouds are combining,
the flickering light's just a flame.

Oh, but yeah, I'm so tired.
I've been away for so many years,
but I guess I'll just wait a bit longer.
I'll stay 'til they open the gates.
Oh, but yeah, all my life, I stay here waiting,
every new year always making me
feel as though there's nothing up there, but
one day you came out of nowhere.

Nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
The sky broke apart and you appeared.
Dropped from the heavens, they call me a dreamer.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down, because
nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.


Oh well, how many years has it been now?
How many days went to waste?
Now the rain and the thunder are clashing,
the sun's got a smile 'cross the face.

Oh, but yeah, I'm so tired.
I fight so hard and come back beaten.
Beacon, burn through it brightly,
we soared through a sliver of space.
Oh, but yeah, all my life, I stay here waiting,
every new year always making me
feel as though there's nothing up there, but
one day you came out of nowhere.

Nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
The sky broke apart and you appeared.
Dropped from the heavens, they call me a dreamer.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down, because
nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.

Lifted up!
Lift us back to the sky and the world above.
Lifted up!
Lifted up!

Nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
The sky broke apart and you appeared.
Dropped from the heavens, they call me a dreamer.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.

Lifted off the ground,
I took your hands and pulled you down, because
nineteen eighty-five was a good year.
I won't lie, I knew you belonged here.
