lyrics

When it's absolutely silent
The room is absolutely bare
When it's absolutely dark all around
And there's no one there

In the eleventh hour of stillness
That's dragging on and on
When you thought you'd never get what you're after
Cause you waited for so long

That's when the spark comes to life
That's when the spark starts burning strangely bright
And you get up as fast as you can
'Cause you're trying to catch the wind
That blew through your screen
Into the tip of your pen

You never know when it might strike you
But when it does you're like a match
And everything you touch turns into fire
A fire you wanna catch

Running through the woods
Driving down that hill
Hoping that the right words will come
Knowing that they will

When the spark comes to life
When the spark finds you and pulls you towards its light
And you pray you'll have the paper
Or the medium of choice
When the spark chooses you and demands to hear your voice

When the spark comes to life
When the spark comes to life

(get up as fast as you can)

Holding onto something
That doesn't yet exist
But nothing feels as sure and as real to you as this

When the spark comes...
When the spark comes to life

When the spark comes to life
(you wanna get up as fast as you can)
When the spark comes to life
(you wanna get up as fast as you can)

Holding onto something
That doesn't yet exist
But nothing feels as sure and as real to you as this
