Nathanson, Matt - Giants Lyrics

I don’t want to see the wires in the circus anymore
I wanna dream and make believe people can fly
I don’t need to be reminded what it takes to kill the fun
I got a head full of sharp knives.

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder and it’s easy to forget
So meet me when the lights dim
We can wake up every morning, we can set ourselves on fire
We can do it all again.

The world don’t speak for us. They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood.
But we are giant. Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
We are giant. giants

I want to roll around the darkness, til the darkness goes away
Til the television finally tells the truth. You know,
Everybody’s scared of things that they don’t understand
And all the living they don’t do.

It’s easy to get colder. It’s easy to forget
So meet me when the lights dim
We can wake up every morning, we can set ourselves on fire
We can do it all again.

I’m done trying to fit in
And be half forgiven
For things that I never did

We’re more than what scares us
We’re final and fearless
We’ll dance where the ice gets thin

  40. JoMammaSmurf

  41. Steini Pétur

    This song just grew on me, at first I was thinking Why on earth would you replace the previous song and then It sort of just grows on you episode by episode... I guess they are going to rotate a new song every year..

    Tom Hiom

    Yeah I had the same feeling about it. But then I also had the feeling of it growing on me with last year's too, and that ended up being one of my favourite songs of the year!


    I liked Matt Nathanson's music before this song was featured, but Best Day of My Life - American Authors is still my favorite WSOP song!

    AoS H

    variety is the spice of life

  42. demmy hype

    wsop brought me high and low for this song

    Glenn Watson

    So difficult to find... I had to learn the lyrics and Google them


    Same Glenn, trawled the internetz for hours then decided to watch another WSOP episode and googled the lyrics :D Great song!

    Thảo Dương

    I just searched youtube for "wsop 2016 song" and it's there :D

    Glenn Watson

    Finally they have fixed YouTube :)

  43. Ante

    +Tom Hiom Thanks for the infos! Awesome. I think Best Day of my Life symbolizes the most the WSOP in my mind, but the best song yet is this year's one as for me!

    Andrew Joros

  69. Pattyk isagun

    Possibly Matt's best ever song, just amazing! Had a shot at lyrics:

    VERSE 1
    I don't wanna see the wires in the circus anymore
    I wanna dream and make believe people can fly
    I don't need to be reminded what it takes to kill the fun
    I got a head full of sharp knives

    Yeah it's easy to get colder
    And it's easy to forget
    So meet me where the light's dim
    We can wake up every morning
    We can set ourselves on fire
    We can do it all again

    The world don't speak for us
    They lack the confidence
    Yeah we're only hearts and bones and blood
    Oh but we are giants, giants

    The walls are closing in
    We climb invade us in
    With nothing but the clouds against our skin
    Oh we are giants, giants

    VERSE 2
    I wanna roll around the darkness til the darkness goes away
    Til the television finally tells the truth
    You know everybody's scared of things they don't understand
    And all of the living that they don't do



    I'm done trying to fit in
    And be half forgiven
    For things that I never did

    We're more than what scares us
    We're final and fearless
    We'll dance when the ice gets thin


    Jae Amagna

    Awesome job! I hear the lyric in the chorus as "the walls are closing in, we climb & they descend"

  70. Brvanden

    I LOVE it the first time I am hearing it! I wasn't sure about Gold in the Summertime, because it's such a different sound, but I dig this one for sure. 💙
