Sondre Lerche – Cut Lyrics

Cut Lyrics By Sondre Lerche

Who’s that creature pulling shapes in the dark?
A moving shadow at the edge of the park
Under cover of soft winds and summer rain
Two heads, two hearts, two sets of body parts

Who are those creatures, so reckless and bold?
Making love like it’s made of gold
No one here but two fearless souls that delve
into something they become when they leave themselves

Roll the camera
Pull in tighter
Watch their faces as they come alive
Cue the music
Get in closer
And then walk away
If you can walk away
Cut!

Who are those creatures when they’re afraid?
When they abandon the gold they made
When they flee the scene of the crime at dawn,
and return the next night making love on the lawn

We make no sense, we make such a mess
We get so drunk with powerlessness
and so hooked on offering everyone else
the very same escape we deny ourselves

Roll the camera
Pull in tighter
Watch our faces as we come alive
Cue the music
Hold me closer
And then walk away
If you can walk away
Cut!

«This isn’t happening, don’t get no ideas!
We’re in a scene, it’s not you, it’s not me»
It was easy enough to call our bluff,
but I felt truly insane jumping off that train

How did we do it? How did we stop?
As we lay motionless in the grass you could hear a pin drop
and the silent storm in our chests subsiding,
hiding two exploding hearts colliding

Let’s keep rolling
Let it happen
Say «I love you» like the camera does
Kiss each other in slow motion
And then walk away
If you can walk away

Roll the camera
Pull in tighter
One last close-up if we still have time Kill the music
Kill the moment
And then walk away
If you can walk away
Cut!
