He said I was brave As my knuckles hit the pavement With years of seconds spent Tucked behind my ears Waiting for life to begin Is this what you're going for? Is this what you're made of? Is this what you're going for? Is this what you're made of? She's light as a feather She floats to the ground And when she hits She doesn't make a sound And she's off and running In search of a crown And you can try But you cannot take her down

You were a beautiful place To hang dreams She said to the king Your ghost steering my heart at the helm Your eyes staring back from the film Unwriting the past to the last letter To the last line Heart broken Broken open at last Unwriting the past to the last letter To the last line Heart broken Broken open at last Unlock the places that wouldn't budge And he'll cry tonight in this room And we'll learn what it means to love And for tonight it will be true Unwriting the past to the last letter To the last line Heart broken Broken open at last Unwriting the past to the last letter To the last line Heart broken Broken open at last

Trailing back to the words from which all wounds began Turned up collars and hurry past The tired go-nowhere You string your life between two points And then you just hang out on the line You polish your memories Sitting around just killing time It's heavy on your mind It weighs heavy on your heart And you don't know where to start You feel it in your bones There's a hollow where you used to call home The voices find you in your quiet space The place you were was safe Your heart is a Judas Waiting to betray your good name Can you storm the gates Outta here

When I said I was done I didn't mean forever When I said I was through I didn't mean you Let's build a ship out of hope And sails of silver screens Climb over the side With my skirt hitched to my knees And you can be my captain And I will be a girl with a dream Come on baby Whisper what you mean to me Winds at our backs Let's go to the edge of the map If there are dragons I will fight them for you If there are giants Hell, I'll kill them too As long as you are here As long as I am here with you

And everyone wants to be seen Everyone wants the big machine To pick them up right off the ground And make them the next big thing And everyone knows that I love You were the right mistake to make And if I had a chance to do it all again I'd do it all the same

01:34
And the days go by without a hitch But the nights They are ceaseless The streets are full of debris Of you and I The tent city Guards up It is a long lost night of long lost loves Guards up Dawn takes aim, a loaded gun Guards up It is a long lost night of long lost loves Guards up When you wish this bed would be enough And there are those bastard things you cannot name Or change And your eyes are trained on the ceiling And the dawn is still a million miles away

a photograph says too much breaking behind the veil of your touch we never slow down and we never stop we never slow down and we never stop you keep giving me that look again I don't know what you've been thinking I keep saying all the wrong things and you pretend that you're listening we never slow down and we never stop and I don't know what you're made of

We raise up the dead Our footfalls stir up dust of things We couldn't give up yet Your name hangs off my lips like a half-lit cigarette and after all this time we still couldn't say it say it You show up all bright eyes You show up all bright eyes You show up all bright eyes You show up all bright eyes We raise up the dead It hangs fat coiled between our tongues You give away the game, my friend the game, my friend we raise up the dead and one of these days we finally might acknowledge it acknowledge it

Cannot find the words To make you understand It's not a bird It's not a plane It's just a man And it's not him, babe That makes you feel this way It's simply your mistake It's not him, babe That brings you to your knees That has you begging please Wake up Wondering how this is happening to you And you wake up, you're wondering why this is happening But its not him, babe It's not
10.
And I've had too much wine It's almost time For passing ships to pass me by We watched our shadows grow In the fading lamps We watched our shadows go And I've had too much wine And I miss you sometimes

She got her lip gloss on She gonna paint the town up With every color she got She looks like hell It's okay baby, you're living it up You're doing well Go anywhere, Anywhere you want She got her dress on She gonna send the world out For everything Everything Everything she wants

And I And I And I Your fingers
