lyrics

WE USED TO DREAM

THE RAIN FALLS HARD ON THIS TOWN / IT WEARS OUR BODIES DOWN
WE WALK AROUND WITH DIRT ON OUR LIPS
AND THE OLDER WE GET THE MORE WE SETTLE IN OUR RESTLESS FITS
UNTIL WE SMOLDER IN OUR DEBTS IN OUR SUNDAY BEST OUTFITS
BUT WE DON’T CRY NO MORE

OH YOU NEVER THOUGHT THAT YOU WOULD GIVE IN / AND NOW WE ALL ADMIT
OUR FEET ARE DUG DOWN DEEP IN THE GROUND
YOU USED TO SIT AROUND AND DREAM ABOUT YOUR TRUE LOVE IN HER SATIN GOWN
BUT THAT RING AROUND YOUR FINGER’S FEELING MUCH MORE LIKE A HANDCUFF NOW
SO YOU DON’T DREAM NO MORE

SO WHERE’S THE MORAL IN THIS?
IS THERE SOMETHING I MISSED?
DOESN’T ANYONE REMEMBER THE TIMES
WHEN WE NEVER HAD THE NEED FOR ANY TELEPHONES
WE WOULD CALL UP TO ALL OUR BUDDIES FROM THEIR PATIOS
AND WE’D LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD WITH OUR HANDS IN THE DIRT
THE ONLY RINGS AROUND OUR NECKS WERE FROM THE MUD ON OUR SHIRTS
AND NOW WE’RE SPILLING OUT OR SECRETS ON THE CHAPEL FLOOR
IN AN ATTEMPT TO SALVAGE PIECES OF OUR SHATTERED CORES
AND WE’RE ALL WISHING ON THE STARS FOR AN END TO IT ALL
BUT WE’RE JUST RACKING UP THE SCARS UNTIL THE BALL COMES CRASHING DOWN


A SONG FOR BENJAMIN

BORN IN THE SPRING RAIN / BORN SAFE IN THE TEMPLE OF AME
I DO DREAM OF WHEN WE’LL MEET / WHEN YOU WAKE FINALLY / FROM EMBRYONIC SLEEP
I’VE SEEN YOU DANCING / TO THE SOUND OF HER HEARTBEAT
HEAVENLY, THE SYMPHONY / WITH YOUR HANDS IN HER HAIR / SHE IS YOURS TO KEEP

I WILL WATCH YOU WALK / I WILL WATCH YOU RUN
I WILL WATCH YOU CHASE THE SETTING SUN

SO I AM TOLD YOU WILL NEVER GROWN OLD ON A PIRATE SHIP OR AN IGLOO OF SNOW
YOU WILL FOREVER BE / YOUR MOTHER’S BABY
TRUE LOVES CODE OF FLESH AND BONE
