Us Lyrics

James Bay
[Verse 1]
Sometimes I'm beaten
Sometimes I'm broke
'Cause sometimes this city is nothing but smoke
Is there a secret?
Is there a code?
Can we make it better?
'Cause I'm losing hope

[Chorus]
Tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us

[Verse 2]
After the wreckage
After the dust
I still hear the howling, I still feel the rush
Over the riots, above all the noise
Through all the worry, I still hear your voice

[Chorus]
So, tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
Tell me when the light goes out
That even in the dark we will find a way out
Tell me how 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us


[Bridge]
We used to be kids living just for kicks
In cinema seats, learning how to kiss
Running through the streets that were painted gold
We never believed we'd grow up like this

[Chorus]
Tell me how to be in this world
Tell me how to breathe in and feel no hurt
Tell me now 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
Tell me where the light goes down
So even in the dark we can find our way out
Tell me now 'cause I believe in something
I believe in us
Tell me now 'cause I believe in something
And I believe in us
