"A long shot" in lyrics

I only feel a weight there
that is trying to pull me down (into the depths)
but I don't surrender
no, not by a long shot
because there's much more to live for
all the fear and all the hope

From one day to the next
You find you can’t make it up
From scratch like that
Catching such a long shot on the volley
As it comes
Again and again

Feel the light
Shining like the stars tonight
Remember what we forgot
I know it's a long shot
But we're bringing it all back
We're bringing it all back

Hey baby, what's that sound?
I make a few steps and I fall to the ground.
It's a long shot but darling couldn't love any more,
Come on come on
Hey baby, give it a try.

When it comes to you

Zara Larsson - Weak Heart

Inflaming ourselves, glow at the wick

house (baby, no)
The truth is even if it's all catching up with you now

Aw man, so lucky... and so am I [laughs]

Ouais j'ai confiance en ma cible.
