"As You Are"
I won't give it back again
I won't give it back to you
I won't give that part again
I won't love another you

Cos honey that hour glass got me thinking
You ain't no friend of mine
We were moving so fast and you got me thinking
Why not keep chasing time?
I said ‘Honey I wanna find somewhere sacred, away from your flashing lights’
Honey I was yours in the dark of the night

Come as you are
Come let me take a picture
Come as you are

I won't give it back again
More that I’m giving, the more you take
I’m feeling forced into the intimate
With every move I make into your frame

Come on take anything you like

Cos honey that hourglass got me thinking
You ain’t no friend of mine
We were moving so fast and the sand was sinking
Why not keep chasing time?
Honey I wanna feel something sacred, away from your flashing lights
Honey I was yours in the dark of the night

Come as you are
Come let me take a picture
Come as you are

Come inside, a little to the right
Get comfortable, you're a natural
Come inside, it'll be alright

Love comes at a cost
But nothing’s ever lost
It's just another paradox
The dark was just never just for us

Take another fast
Try to make it last
But this too my love shall pass
The dark was just never just for us

And it all ends the same
Cos in time everything must change

Take another fast
Try to make it last if you want to
But in time everything must go
