Snow Patrol - Called Out In The Dark lyrics

Northern Irish rock band Snow Patrol have confirmed "Called Out In The Dark" as the official first single from their sixth studio album "Fallen Empires" - This will be the first work since the 2008 LP "A Hundred Million Suns" from the Gary Lightbody-led band. I'm liking "Called Out In The Dark" a lot! It's different but good. It sounds more electronic than most of their previous work, and I totally approve. Electronic music + Snow Patrol = amazingness! "Called Out In The Dark" hit iTunes on September 4th, 2011.

Snow Patrol "Called Out In The Dark" lyrics

It's like we just can't help ourselves
'Cause we don't know how to back down
We were called out to the streets
We were called in to the towns

And how the heavens, they opened up
Like arms of dazzling gold
With our rain washed histories
Well they do not need to be told

Show me now, show me the arms aloft
Every eye trained on a different star
This magic
This drunken semaphore
And I

We are listening
And we're not blind
This is your life
This is your time

We are listening
And we're not blind
This is your life
This is your time

I was called out in the dark
By a choir of beautiful cheats
And as the kids took back the parks
You and I were left with the streets

Show me now, show me the arms aloft
Every eye trained on a different star
This magic
This drunken semaphore
And I

We are listening
And we're not blind
This is your life
This is your time

(repeats 5x)
