Songtext Messiah von Austra

Messiah

As I stand
I'm not a Messiah
So take me down
Back to the ground

I'm not your answer
I can't be your escape
You've raised me up
I'm in the sky

Don't be surprised
When I can't deliver
The pulse you need
This old machine

Don't be surprised

When I can't deliver
A heavy breath
Mountain of steam

We may be cast
My world may be broken
In spite of this
Give me your heart

I will not lift you
But I can guide you
I'll be your shadow
You'll be the light

And out of ballads
We'll settle between us
I'll be the body
I'll be the spine
