lyrics

Though these mountains should crumble and throw themselves to the heart of the deep blue sea
I know where my feet stand and I won't lose my ground
The wind always seems to be blowing in the wrong direction
Just a glimpse of you is all I need

We tell people to say what we should've said
We tell people to do what we wished we'd done
We throw piles of rocks into the deepest part of our soul
But I still can't hear those rocks hitting the ground

You are the bed beneath my body where I find rest
You hold the words of life where else can I go
We get our hands dirty painting the world as it should be
You draw me in

We tell people to say what we should've said
We tell people to do what we wished we'd done
We throw piles of rocks into the deepest part of our soul
But I still can't hear those rocks hitting the ground
