Jukebox the Ghost - Empire

You’ve got your guards and they’ve got their guards
They’re overworked and you’ve never ever won a thing in your life.
I’ve got my dreams and I’ve got my sleep
and I’ve been promised a building’s gonna keep these visions of an empire at peace.

Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Oh my god,
you’re the one I’ve been holding out for,
for so damn long.
And you’re a far cry from an empire at peace.

I’ve got my knives and my heart up my sleeves,
but this weather’s getting too nice for me to keep an empire at peace.

Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Oh my god,
you’re the one I’ve been holding out for,
for so damn long
for, for so damn long
And you’re a far cry from an empire…

You’ve got your guards and they’ve got their guns
They’re overworked and you’ve never ever won a thing in your life.

Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Cause my heart is my keep and you are threatening me
Oh my god
you’re the one I’ve been holding out for
for so damn long
Oh my god
you’re the one I’ve been holding out for
for so damn long.
for, for so damn long.
