lyrics

I never had a chance
to be more, be more than I am.
I'm combative as a stone.

And she was living like a queen,
completely free of insecurity,
what made her leave her throne?

I don't know!

I never had a chance
to be more, be more than one man,
'cuz I'm better by myself.

The things she thought that she could take
Boiled up into her big mistakes,
well, just count them.

She put me under on the table
fixed my bleeding heart and closed mind,
preoccupations with the time,
lacing through my guts

Now, our love, it grows like a tree
upwards and out, longer than her or me,
and always twice as bright,
always twice the light.

So thank you for the brass heart and black lungs
and the hope for rust and dust to settle in
and as cartographers, we'll pinpoint the gutters
find another home for us to meddle in.

The proverbs of you thank you.
The proverbs of you, thank you.
The proverbs of you thank you.
The proverbs of you, thank you.
