now that you're on your knees,
what are you praying for?
yeah do you lift your eyes up to the sky?

locked in for days
with no end in sight
be strong my love,
it is time to fight the good fight.

stay away
stay alive

our fall from the clouds
has come down to this
home is where you rest your head
home is where the heart is

Milan, Tehran, New York
take heart
we're in this fight together
even though you're torn apart

stay away
