Ben Howard Games in the Dark Lyrics

We played games in the park
And I want to stay there
Close to your heart
And you said "Oh, I can feel your heart beat,"
And I told you, "Sometimes when I stay the night, I find it hard, hard to sleep"
Oh, we played, yeah, like lovers in the moonlight
We stay here, stubborn in the softness and the light
Oh, how close to heaven can you get
Before the sun burns your eyes?
Oh, oh, baby
You were like a child when you wept
Yeah, through soul sang lullabies
Eyes, e-e-eyes, Oh, Eyes, e-e-eyes
We played games with the distance
Made phone calls, phone calls just to listen
We held, oh, mornings from the start
You said "Baby, maybe, maybe, I never want to make your heart less"
For now, words get lost in the dark
For when the morning comes
That you dropped out the start
Oh, how close to heaven can you get
Before the sun burns your eyes?
Oh, oh, baby
You were like a child when you wept
Oh, through soul sang lullabies
Eyes, e-e-eyes
Yeah, how close to heaven can you get
Before the sun burns your eyes?
Oh, oh, mama
You were like a child when you wept
Oh, through soul sang lullabies
Eyes, e-e-eyes, Oh, Eyes, e-e-eyes
And you're under the same set of stars
We lay there, worlds apart
And you still say "I can feel your heart beat"
And I still find it hard in the middle of the night, oh, trying to sleep
Oh come, find me when the years get older, find me when the world
Lights solder to our fire, oh, oh, no
Find me when the years get older, find me when the world
Lights solder to our fire
Oh, whoa, Oh whoa, solder...
To our fire
