I Believe In What's Gone Wrong

lyrics

Hey little darlin won’t you tell me bout lightning
Tell me bout the time you were only thirteen
And you drove your daddy’s car to the shore just to see it light up
Tell me bout the time you believed in ghosts
And the way that your grandmother crossed herself
Your little brother was scared so you stood by the door and kept watch
Oh pretty baby won’t you keep on turning
Oh pretty baby let me keep on earning
This old hearts got a whole lotta love to give
I’ve been thinking bout the way we talk
How we never say nothing that would sound like love
How you stare at the floor when I hold your hand in mine

Oh its a dream I can always remember
Oh its a fire that keeps burning and burning
Over and over again, over and over again
I believe, I believe in what’s gone wrong

Hey its the promise that we made that summer
When you spent three weeks at the house on the corner
And we rode through the streets to the the jetty necking bottles of wine
Hey you remember that your daddy got mad
When he found the cigarettes at the bottom of your bag
And you wouldn’t say nothing and no you wouldn’t say nothing at all
Hey we were drinking in the beachside carpark
And maybe I was thinking that you really were the one
And this old heart had a whole lotta love to give
Cos I’ve been dreamin bout your silhouette
On the sand in the dark with the moon at your back
And the night we swam in the dark with the milky way

Oh its a dream I can always remember
Oh its a fire that keeps burning and burning
Over and over again, over and over again
I believe, I believe in what’s gone wrong

Hey little darlin been a long time coming
And we’ve both been broken and we’ve both been running
But gimme one shot and I’ll give you everything I got left
Hey little darlin its a song we’ve sung before
And we won’t stop singing for sure
Let me take your hand and I’ll take my chance again
Oh pretty baby let me keep on yearning
Oh pretty baby let me keep on burning
This old heart’s got a whole lotta love to give

Oh its a dream I can always remember
Oh its a fire that keeps burning and burning
Over and over again, over and over again
I believe, I believe in what’s gone wrong
