The Killers Battle Born Lyrics

Last updated: 03/09/2013 06:21:21 AM

Lost faith in the human spirit
You walk around like a ghost
Your star-spangled heart
Took a train for the coast

When you shine you’re a hilltop mansion
So how’d you lose the light?
Was it blown by the wind
In the still of the night
you're up against the wall

Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet
(No you can’t stop now)

I always saw you as a kind of keeper
Mother to a child
But your boys have grown soft
And your girls have gone wild

From the Blue Ridge to the Black Hills
To the Redwood Sky
The season may pass,
But the dream doesn’t die
Now don’t you drop the ball…

Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet
(No you can’t stop now)
When they break your heart
And when they cause your soul to mourn
Remember what I said
Boy you was battle born
(No you can’t stop now)

You was battle born

When the night falls on the lane
Are you haunted by the sound
It’s gonna take more than a hand
To turn this thing around
Won’t you lean it on me
Rescue, set me free

Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet
(No you can’t stop now)
Did they break your heart?
And did they cause your soul to mourn?
Remember what I said
Boy you was battle born
(No you can’t stop now)
Come on show your face
Come on give us one more spark
So we’ll sing a song of fire
Unless we fall into the dark
(No you can’t stop now)

You never know
If you never learn
You never shine
If you never burn
The rising tide
The undertow
The filling in
The overflow
You turn away
Welcome home
