Official lyrics

turn your magic on
Umi she'd say
everything you want’s a dream away
and we are legends every day
that's what she told me

turn your magic on,
to me she'd say
everything you want’s a dream away
under this pressure under this weight
we are diamonds

now I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart underneath my skin
and I feel my heart beating
oh you make me feel
like I’m alive again
alive again
oh you make me feel
like I’m alive again

said I can't go on, not in this way
I'm a dream that died by light of day
gonna hold up half the sky and say
only I own me

and I feel my heart beating
I feel my heart underneath my skin
oh I can feel my heart beating
cause you make me feel
like I’m alive again
alive again
oh you make me feel
like I’m alive again

turn your magic on, Umi she'd say
everything you want's a dream away
under this pressure under this weight
we are diamonds taking shape
we are diamonds taking shape

if we've only got this life
this adventure oh then I
and if we've only got this life
you get me through
and if we've only got this life
in this adventure oh then I
want to share it with you
with you
with you
yeah I do
woohoo
woohoo
woohoo

Anyone knows what the backing vocals actually mean?

Like most lyrics, I believe those are close. But the points of interest is in that last bridge part. I agree with this interpretation, but i've seen other ones as well.

Was just thinking about the lyircs! Gonna post them on the main site.

It looks like they're all correct now, after the Omen change. I'll have a listen through again and see if I hear anything different :p

K, i'm second guessing the last part...it makes more sense if it was

If we've only got this life
In this adventure, more than I
And if we've only got this life
Will you get me through, ohh/alive?
And if we've only got this life
In this adventure, more than I
I wanna share with you
With you, with you
I said, oh, say oh

Not necessarily what I hear though....

I hear:

Then this adventure, know that I
Will share [it?] with you
dang, another plausible answer. Might need more ears on this before you post it on main site Sparky....

I searched their site but couldn't find lyrics for any of the songs?
me neither, which is why I asked Archiderp. I only made this thread because ​I couldnt find an official source

Hopefully they'll add the lyrics when the full album is released. This thread is great for until then. I'd say you're really close to the actual lyrics anyways lol. Difficult to tell what is said in the 2nd verse in some parts
