    Lyrics

    So maybe you're standing
    In some foreign town
    You've walked for miles
    Till the heat slows you down

    And your jeans and your curls
    Are bleached and split
    And your money and your anger
    Are all used up

    Maybe I'm sorry
    About the light in this place
    Makes my heart seem cold
    As the words on these pages

    Maybe I'm reminded
    By a shop window displays or a decoration
    Like some church candle
    That might just burn, might just burn

    'Cause we're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    Caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
    When the world is lit by lightning
    That I keep telling you
    That I love you?

    So you're ten miles out
    Of this city at night
    When do colored lights
    Become paint and glass, and dust?

    How I wonder
    What light to trust
    The light of the distance
    Or the light might just burn, might just burn?

    'Cause we're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    We caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
    When the world is lit by lightning
    That I keep telling you
    I keep telling you, I keep telling you?

    We're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    We're caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
    When the world is lit by lightning?

    Seraphim and cherubim
    Skies full of gold dust
    Moonshine and starlight
    Pockets full of rainbows

    Windows and mirrored balls
    Porcelain and silver lake
    Dance hall, neons flash and swing
    Blow out your candles

    It will call you
    Angel, angel
    Angel, angel, angel
    When the world knows your name

    We're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    Caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
    When the world is lit by lightning
    That I keep telling you
    That I love you?

    We're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    Caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
    When the world is lit by lightning
    That I keep telling you
    That I love you?

    I love you, I love you
    When the world, when the world
    When the world knows your name
    When the world, when the world
    When the world knows your name

    When the world knows your name
    When the world knows your name
    When the world knows your name

    We're dancing under chandeliers
    And I'm telling you
    Caught in the headlights
    And I'm yelling it at you

    Why is it girl
