OPINION

I don’t dislike it but as far as the ‘James Bond’ style goes I think this would struggle to be called that kind of song. It doesn’t have the same impact as ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’. It’s kind of bland for me in that respect.

PREDICTION

I think it will qualify and it will hover between the bottom left and top right hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

Sometimes it feels like it’s meant to be broken
Sometimes we long for the unspoken
We try to avoid every commotion
By showing hardly any emotion

Sometimes it seems we’re at the wrong station
Looking for a deadly combination
Sometimes it feels like imagination
Looking for all these cheap sensations

Heeeeey
Don’t we go against the tide?
Against all their advice
We keep running, we keep on running
It’s just a matter of time

Before it all echoes, echoes
and goes
Crashing against the walls
Hold my hand and keep your eyes closed
Before it all echoes, echoes
and falls
I suppose it’s just a matter of time

Sometimes it feels like it’s meant to be broken
Sometimes we act like we’ve already chosen
We try to retrieve something stolen
By remembering how it used to be golden

Heeeeey
Don’t we go against the tide?
Against all their advice
We keep running, we keep on running
It’s just a matter of time

Before it all echoes, echoes
and goes
Crashing against the walls
Hold my hand and keep your eyes closed
Before it all echoes, echoes
and falls
I suppose it’s just a matter of time
