lyrics

Into the great unknown
In fear of losing our home
With the stroke of a pen
Threatening to erase us
Our lives can be revoked
Hard won rights in limbo
When your shield's on the books
It's thin as the pages

Well I'd never take us for renegades
But when I hold your hand we look menacing
So now the tide could change for us suddenly
And we'll need to run

I swear I'll keep us free
No border crossing will rip you away from me
Hold on tight, I'll never let them take you
I know it might turn out to be
The rest of our lives as rainbow refugees
Hold on tight, our love will help us break through

Our time is running low
When will we lose our coast?
In the wind and the rain
They ain't gonna save us
When they need to take control
We'll be deemed expendable
When there's nowhere to live
They won't need to cage us

Well I'd never take us for renegades
But when I hold your hand we look menacing
So now the tide could change for us suddenly
And we'll need to run

I swear I'll keep us free
No border crossing will rip you away from me
Hold on tight, I'll never let them take you
I know it might turn out to be
The rest of our lives as rainbow refugees
Hold on tight, our love will help us break through


When they changed up the regime
We knew we'd be losing sleep
We laid our best plans
Filled our go-bags with our dreams
And, oh, I hope we find our friends
But I know I'll be with you till the end

Well I'd never take us for renegades
But when I hold your hand we look menacing
So now the tide could change for us suddenly
And we'll need to run

I swear I'll keep us free
No border crossing will rip you away from me
Hold on tight, I'll never let them take you
I know it might turn out to be
The rest of our lives as rainbow refugees
Hold on tight, our love will help us break through
Oh my god, I never thought it'd be this soon
No more time, no waiting to be rescued
Hold on tight, I'll never let them
I'll never let them take you
Hold on tight, our love will help us break through
And we'll run
