lyrics

This heart’s not made for sitting
It thumps and bumps and jumps all night
Sometimes I think it’s wishing
For something of a different life
This brain’s not made for wishing
It thinks and ticks and talks all night
Sometimes I think of kicking it right out of my head

But lyrics come and go
And this feeling’s with me always inside
Like living in the ocean
Well above my head
Still living in my own skin
Not dead Not yet

This skins not made for holding me in
Sometimes I’m inside out
Now isn’t that just something
For my ticking brain to talk about
Twisted words they tickle my tongue
Wiggling their way in and out
Dancing tiny trails on my tongue
So young

Lyrics come and go
But this feelings with me always inside
Like living in the ocean
Well above my head
Still living in my own skin
Not dead Not yet

What happens when I die what then
Maybe we have to do this all again
Or are we all just pieces of the sky
Warm translucent stardust, you and I

These eyes aren’t made for sleeping
The moonbeams keep them up at night
Sometimes I think I’m dreaming
I’m just looking at my life
