Be Still

The Killers

Be still, go on to bed
Nobody knows what lies ahead
And life is short, to say the least
We're in the belly of the beast

Be still, wild and young
Long may your innocence reign
Like shells on the shore
May your limits be unknown, may your efforts be your own

If you ever feel you can't take it anymore

Don't break character, you've got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Rise up like the Sun, labor till the work is done

Be still, one day you'll leave
Fearlessness on your sleeve
When you come back, tell me what did you see? (what did you see?)
Was there something out there for me?

Be still, close your eyes
Soon enough you'll be on your own
Steady and straight
And if they drag you through the mud, it doesn't change what's in your
Blood
Over rock, over chain, over trap, over plain

When they knock you down

Don't break character
You've got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?

Be still
Be still
Be still
Be still

Over rock and chain, over sunset plain
Over trap and snare
When you're in too deep
In your wildest dreams, in your made up schemes

When they knock you down (when they knock you down)

Don't break character
You've got so much heart
Is this real or just a dream?

Rise up like the Sun, and labor till the work is done
