Album

Hold My Home is the fifth studio album by American indie rock band Cold War Kids. It was released on October 21, 2014 under Downtown Records.

Following the mild reception of their fourth album Dear Miss Lonelyhearts and the departure of original drummer Matt Aveiro, the band enlisted former Modest Mouse percussionist Joe Plummer and started work on their next project.

Hold My Home has spawned two singles: "All This Could Be Yours" and "First". The album was released to mixed reviews from music critics who argued over its production and songwriting. To promote the record, the band toured across North America.

Lyrics

Cheated and lied, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare?

First you lose trust, then you get worried

Night after night, bar after club
Dropping like flies, who woke you up?
On the front lawn, sprinklers turn on
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?

First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

There comes a time, in a short life
Turn it around, get a re-write
Call it a dark night of the soul
Ticking of clocks, gravity's pull

First you get close, then you get worried

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

You're going silent, the silent treatment
It's not inviting now
Don't deny what you meant
You get excited, you get excited
You got a feeling, or at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You get excited, you get excited

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?
I do not deserve to wait around forever when you were there first

First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
First you get close, then you get worried
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
First you get close, then you get worried
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends

Testo

Ingannato e beffato, ferito così profondamente
tu hai fatto un voto, non arrabbiarsi mai
hai giocato al gioco, anche se non equamente
sono tutti uguali, chi può paragonare?

prima perdi la fiducia, poi ti preoccupi

Notte dopo notte, bar dopo bar
cadendo come le mosche, chi ti ha svegliato?
sul prato frontale, si accendono gli irrigatori
non è la tua casa, dove hai sbagliato?

Prima ti fai male, poi chiedi scusa

Volando come una palla di cannone, cadendo sulla terra
pesante come una piuma quando colpisci la polvere
Come faccio a essere io il fortunato?
non mi merito di aspettare in giro sempre quando tu eri qui per prima
Prima ti fai male, poi chiedi scusa

Arriva un momento, in una vita breve
rigirala sottosopra, ottieni una riscrittura
Chiamalo come una nera notte dell'anima
ticchettio di orologi, forza di gravità

Prima ti avvicini, poi ti preoccupi

Volando come una palla di cannone, cadendo sulla terra
pesante come una piuma quando colpisci la polvere
Come faccio a essere io il fortunato?
non mi merito di aspettare in giro sempre quando tu eri qui per prima
Prima ti fai male, poi chiedi scusa

stai avanzando silenziosamente, il trattamento silenzioso
Non è invitante ora
non negare ciò che intendevi
Ti ecciti, ti ecciti
senti un'emozione, o almeno puoi fingerla
Vuoi illuminarlo, vuoi illuminarlo
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
Ti ecciti, ti ecciti

Volando come una palla di cannone, cadendo sulla terra
pesante come una piuma quando colpisci la polvere
Come faccio a essere io il fortunato?
non mi merito di aspettare in giro sempre quando tu eri qui per prima

Volando come una palla di cannone, cadendo sulla terra
pesante come una piuma quando colpisci la polvere
Come faccio a essere io il fortunato?
non mi merito di aspettare in giro sempre quando tu eri qui per prima

Prima ti avvicini, poi ti preoccupi
Prima ti avvicini, poi ti preoccupi
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
Prima ti avvicini, poi ti preoccupi
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
Prima ti avvicini, poi ti preoccupi
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
Vuoi illuminarlo, vuoi illuminarlo
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
Vuoi illuminarlo, vuoi illuminarlo
Voi vogliono illuminarla adesso, la candela da entrambe le estremità
