I awaken to that dream again shadows flock like crows around me I can't see you but I sense which way to run, so I run to our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom growing louder and louder 'til I find our tiny room louder 'til all I hear is you wars wage on somewhere gales poltergeist the air stars change formation spelling out "danger" so how come we never looked up? how come we never looked up? as our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom grew louder and louder 'til it filled up our tiny room louder 'til all I heard was you I awaken to that dream again in darkness we held so close that our breath was a sparrow passed back and forth between our throats our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom grows louder and louder 'til it transcends up our tiny room louder 'til all I know is true louder 'til all I hear is you louder 'til all I know is you

Spring comes on insinuates and sighs her lullaby staring ‘cross the backyards through the woods down to your house your words begin like a sweet Amen but then we're doin' it all again then we're doin' it all again ohh....yeah we're doing it all again last night last call left off in mid-song an old game of musical chairs there we were the only ones left standing there you're words begin like a sweet Amen but then we're doing it all... we're doin' it all again then we're, doin' in all again ohhh....we're, doin' it all again ohhh...yeah we're doing it all again...again! if I believe I am able to be astonished if I believe I’m light as air you fall behind me untethered I belong to no one, nowhere spring moves on insinuates and sighs her lullaby

Time, we wasted haunts me still wheat and cornfields flip past like chapters in a book we were fated for better or worse and I am changed I am changed time, I owe you we made a deal objects may be closer than they first appear with my head outside the window I gave a blistering shout it struck the mountains and came barreling back and I, I am changed I am changed ohhhhhhhh I, I am changed I, I am changed I am changed

It feels like all the air has left the room how could you know how you affect me? you flicker like an old projector your beauty never gets old snowfall is the act of loving you wind blow is the act of loving you epic. silent. magic. through and through simple. distant. pure. do you see me trying to be a good person? can you hear my every thought? do you watch me when I’m sleeping? the way that I do you sun fall is the act of loving you waves crash is the act of loving you epic. silent. magic. through and through simple. distant. pure. epic. silent. magic. through and through simple. distant. pure. it's like flying the rooftops below all our places seen from above rows of seats in the empty theater wait like seeds not yet sown rain fall is the act of loving you this song is the act of loving you epic. silent. magic. through and through simple. distant. pure. epic. silent. magic. through and through simple. honest. pure. simple. honest. pure.
