lyrics

You put the heart-shaped knot
In my stretched-straight silver cord
Like a rope that leads to heaven
Our breath's in pockets caught
Of our threadbare lived-in coats
It is the hope that lifts the living.

You're the first word on my tongue
Till the last breath in my lung
Ours the years that make me young.

Shoots of life have shot
Through the houses that we bought
We left our shadows on them
Boots the hallways blot
But they're proof that we have walked
The roof stops water falling.

You're the first word on my tongue
Till the last breath in my lung
Ours the years that make me young

You
Web winder
Fortune is not free
Only in dreams
Only in my dreams
Then I am not me
I'm you
Thread finder
It is as you believe
Only in dreams
Only in my dreams
Then I am not me
Eyes closed fast can see.
