EP: "Five Quick Cuts" (2015)

Stop / Rewind lyrics - Cold War Kids

Oh, when I met you
Was it a dream?
Or a simulation
Reality, well I was just wondering

Cause I need to stop and rewind
Are you ahead of your time?

In Ancient Egypt
In native tribes
Life was so messy
So well organized
I'd be naked
You felt alive
Didn't you tell me
So satisfied
And I was just wonderin'

Cause I need to stop and rewind
Oh I need to stop and rewind
What I know is go ahead of its time
And all I want is to stop and rewind

All I want is to stop and rewind
All I want is to stop and rewind
All I want is to stop and rewind

One Song At A Time lyrics - Cold War Kids

I am over too exposed
Easy target to dispose
Are you saying something?
Find an inch to pay a soul
Pressure for the catapult
Do not miss your moment!

One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time

Find a way to do what takes
Dynasty humiliates
Do your best impression
Claim to start up counterfeit
Not becoming your own name
Powers of persuasion

One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time

Shizzle spark, has he known?
Isn't that a dose of you?
Tell me what's the difference!
We need another narcissist
I could hold business here
Whatever makes you discern

One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time

Only I became
All the dream to entertain
How do I feel straight?
While my heart is under space?

One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time
One song at a time

Thunderhearts lyrics - Cold War Kids

I was wired, I was not myself
Between police and the Lotus bed
Echo Park sunset caught my eye
Figured it's worth a try

Love will find a way
Love will find a way
Love will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break
I won't be the same
I won't be the same
We don't get
We don't get forever to change

Glove compartment, hacksaw blade
I walked down to the water's edge
With a t-shirt, through the cloud
My back-pocket concealed

Love will find a way
Love will find a way
Love will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break
I won't be the same
I won't be the same
We don't get
We don't get forever to change

Five quick cuts from a single strand
Of tiny tubers from the tangle
Shoved them into my plastic bag
Security didn't see a thing
It's a crime but you know sometimes
You intervene or nature dies
You cut it off so it will live on
After you're gone

Love will find a way
Love will find a way
Love will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break
I won't be the same
I won't be the same
We don't get
We don't get forever to change

I will find a way
I will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break
Love will find a way
Love will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break

Love will find a way
Love will find a way
I won't let these thunderhearts ever break
I won't be the same
I won't be the same
We don't get
We don't get forever to change

"Hold My Home" (2014)

All This Could Be Yours lyrics - Cold War Kids

I've been silent partner, I've been your shrink
I have heard your sad look misfortune speech"
But I'll have sympathy when you get off your seat
Before this bitter mess becomes a disease

I have cracked the code on this old machine
Ten thousands hours to be released
But I've been wondering: why can't you see?
That the door opens up and go where it leads

I have been waiting
For you to find
That all of this could be yours
Be yours tonight

Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!

You were packing up but I gave you a bed
You would rather crash then go straight ahead
I wrote this years ago but it's finished today
With the help of a friend who has feelings to say

And I have been waiting
But you need a sign
That all of this could be yours
Be yours tonight

I have been patient
But you've got to try
Then all of this could be yours
Be yours tonight

Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!
Could be yours!

All this could be yours
And all this could be yours
And all this could be yours
And all this could be yours, could be yours
All this could be yours

First lyrics - Cold War Kids

Cheated and lied, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare?
First you lose trust, then you get worried

Night after night, bar after club
Dropping like flies, who woke you up
On the front lawn, sprinklers turned on
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

There comes a time, in a short life
Turn it around, get a rewrite
Call it a dark, night of the soul
Ticking of clocks, gravity’s pull
First you get close, then you get worried

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

You're going silent, the silent treatment
It's not inviting now, don't deny what you meant
You get excited, you get excited
You got a feel it, oh, at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You get excited, you get excited

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first

First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried

You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends

Hot Coals lyrics - Cold War Kids

I don't feel a thing
Walking on hot coals
No sensitivity in a fog of war
Try to unwind
To enjoy the good life
But the pressure that I hold
On my shoulders goes

I suspect the reason I am loved
Is because of how tight I'm holding on
Nowadays you're supposed to talk
Problems on and on
Whatever happened to the old -fashioned
Strong and silent type

What they didn't know is once you get us in
Touch with our feelings
You would never hear the end
Once you pull the pin
I suspect the reason I am loved
Is because of how tight I'm holding on
If I set you free, If I let go
Tell me would I still be the one you want

Even a broken clock
Is right twice a day
Even a busted lock
Can keep a thief away

He's not the type and soldiers
Don't go to hell
It's a place reserved for the
Twisted and evil
Now you ask how I'm feeling
I told you then
You're gonna torture me slowly with it

I am falling behind

Drive Desperate lyrics - Cold War Kids

The road, a yellow line unfolds
Jagged then corrodes, Pomona first of all
Machines they rush in a trance
Engines of despair
The taste of desert air
The wheels while we turn
Slowly will burn

Follow me, will you?
Follow me, will you?
Follow me down until
I will admire
Oh, I need someone who will

In parking lots you learned
Boredom made you small
Asphalt and the oil
Conversations dull
Memories pull you down
Engine presses toward
The dark the future holds
Will bring some bright morning

Follow me, will you?
Follow me, will you?
Follow me down until
I will admire
Oh, I need someone who will
[x2]

To find the words that lift me high
I'd tear a hole up in the sky
I'd beg for your approval just to know
I'm on the right course
A trance, the engines of despair
The taste of desert air
The wheels while we turn
They will slowly burn

We're not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone
On this road

Not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone
On this road
[x2]

(Not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone
On this road)
Follow me, will you?
Follow me, will you?
Follow me down until
I will admire
Oh, I need someone who will

Not alone
We are not alone
We are not alone
On this road

Hotel Anywhere lyrics - Cold War Kids

I have withdrawn
Out of the game
Erase my image
Rewrite my name
I can be invisible
The room service cleans
Sulley will bang on my door
With the cream

I am awake, I am awake
I'm here to stay
Hotel Anywhere, USA

It's 3 AM
The bed moans and quakes
I'm dying to know who's in ecstasy
I put my ear up to the wall
Somehow I feel connected to it all

I am awake, I am awake
I'm here to stay
Hotel Anywhere, USA

I am awake, I am awake
On the run
Hotel Anywhere, USA

Hold me down, I won't float away

I write and I paint
I live and I breathe
It's incredible how little I need
I've been enlightened, away from my scene
I find the beauty in everything

I am awake, I am awake
I'm here to stay
Hotel Anywhere, USA

I am awake, I am awake
A full stop
Hotel Anywhere, USA

Hold me down, I'm floating in space
Hold me down, I won't float away
Hold me down, I won't float away

Go Quietly lyrics - Cold War Kids

Talk to me well
All I could say
Is I need a few days
Of quiet and space

Now that I'm here
Restless in chains
It could have been fun
If it wasn't so strange

And now you wanted to share your life
And now you wanna be free to fly
But no, you can't have 'em both
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows

I could become some other man
You easily crush in the palm of your hand
Or one who puts you in the ring
Who runs away, runs away, runs when you swing

And now you wanted to share your life
And now you wanna be free to fly
But it's all or nothing you know
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows

Keep up with me, baby
I would never wanna force your hand
It's a mystery to me
In a language that you understand

And now you wanted to share your life
And now you wanna be free to fly
But no, you can't have 'em both
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows
Tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows
Tonight decides what tomorrow knows

Keep up with me, baby
I would never wanna force your hand
It's a mystery to me
In a language that you understand
[x2]

Nights & Weekends lyrics - Cold War Kids

While they lined up to wait on Black Friday
In a panic with shopping bags
There were magazine racks of cruel attacks
Seven new ways to please your man

She's everywhere you look
She's everywhere you look
She's everywhere you look
Where you look

Well she wanted to dance but lost her chance
Now she feels like a waste of space
On an island you might be in your mind
But your soul won't be cast away

She's everywhere you look
She's everywhere you look
Everywhere you look
Where you look

Here she comes
Oh, here she comes
Here she comes
Oh, here she comes

You're above it
You're above it
You wanted it all
You're above it
You're above it
You wanted it all

Here she comes

Hold My Home lyrics - Cold War Kids

London fog and an empty suitcase
Choreography in Piccadilly
It's time to carve out a place in the sun
I'd like to hold my home where
The seasons never ever ever change

Charlie the painter in Japan
We have grown apart
The cigarette the gardener throws in the grass
I'd like to hold my home where
The mountains run right into the sea

Holiday in the waves
Holiday in the waves

Feet in the sand in St. Tropez
She is a woman of the world
Letting the past go to get what you want
I'd like to hold my home where
The seasons never ever change

Holiday in the waves
Holiday in the waves
Holiday, holiday in the waves
Holiday, holiday in the waves
Holiday in the waves

Flower Drum Song lyrics - Cold War Kids

Clear out the spiderwebs
In your mind
When a hint of violence
Makes you cry
Get on my speedboat
The water's fine
The ocean calms you down
Leaves you kind

You're no psychologist
But you know why
You get so upset
When time slips by
Face your enemy
He's laughing while
You run circles round
But you can't hide

I'll be the one who reaches out when you're gone
I need the salt in the wound for another song
I'll be the one who gets us both out of this
I tell it like it is
You call it arrogance

You're drawn to confidence
It gets you high
But it leaves you powerless
In a trophy life
You're no apologist
And you'd go blind
Before you ever let
Let 'em see you cry

But I'll be the one who reaches out when you're gone
I need the salt in the wound for another song
I'll be the one who gets us both out of this
I tell it like it is
You call it arrogance
[x2]

Oh oh oh
Sing the Flower Drum Song
[x6]

Harold Bloom lyrics - Cold War Kids

When you wake, levitate
Ideas pouring out
Then you set out to make
Something great
But nothing comes out

Are you quick on your feet?
It's time to dig deep

So don't lift your heroes up so high
That you can't touch
Don't let your innocence go dry
Before the flood

Guardians at the gate let you in
Into their mansions
I'm the acid head homeless man
Who demands an explanation

Can you be wise if you never leave the room?
There will always be another Harold Bloom, Harold Bloom
To criticize your every move

So don't lift your heroes up so high
That you can't touch
Don't let your innocence go dry
Before the flood

And don't lift your heroes up so high
That you can't touch
Don't let your innocence go dry
Before the flood
