      About "The Starting Line"

      Lyrics for Keane - "The Starting Line"

      This town was a lovers stage
      But now you can't recognize
      The streetlights that are daggers to your eyes
      You can't find your bearings
      You're slipping into the ground
      The scene has no color and no sound

      You still believe in me
      After the things I've done
      You fear for what we have become
      The ground is uneven
      We stumble from day to day
      You shelter where it's easy
      Although your feet are like lead
      But you gotta get underway

      Drag your heart up to the starting line
      Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
      It's too easy to get left behind
      I know you've been kicked around
      But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me

      Each heart is a paper kite blown around by the breeze
      Love won't rest 'til it brings you to your knees
      Some find it easy, some will never even know
      You think you've done your journey
      Then you stumble and find that there's such a long way to go

      Drag your heart up to the starting line
      Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
      It's too easy to get left behind
      I know you've been kicked around
      You wanna be lost and not be found
      But let's take the back way into town
      Drink to the bad times
      Lay them down on me

      Girl, I still believe in you
      You're too good to fall so low
      We're gonna find a better life I know
      Things will be clearer
      As soon as we make a start
      We'll be that much nearer
      We're too old to just stand here waiting to break apart

      Drag your heart up to the starting line
      Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
      It's too easy to get left behind
      I know you've been kicked around
      But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me
      On me, on me
