Sometimes you have to fall before you fly

Sometimes you have to fall before you fly

 

[Jean-Baptiste Chandelier]
Secret Nation – Tonight
Days run, nights fall away
Street lights guiding me
They show me the way
 Ooh ooh ooh
Take my hand I’ll lead you home
Escape our fame and walk alone
Turn down the lights tonight
The moon’s our guide
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
Let’s run from the dawn
Before it knows we are gone
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
Let’s get lost, ignore the signs
On streets of black and white
Let’s color in these lights
Ooh ooh ooh
A heart run wild
Knows no end
A love untied
Will rise again
Turn down the lights tonight
The moon’s our guide
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
Let’s run from the dawn
Before it knows we are gone
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
Turn down the lights tonight
The moon’s our guide
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
Let’s run from the dawn
Before it knows we are gone
We dance, we sing, we live
We love tonight
