lyrics

7 billion hearts are beating
tapping out a tempo in a round
5 billion years ago was empty
in 50 we'll be ashes in the ground

distance and time are motherfuckers
distance and time will do us in
but there are things that last forever
sewn into the wrinkles in our skin

because I keep a watchful set of eyes for you
should you ever feel like showing
and I keep a chorus set aside for you
should you ever feel like singing

I want to play - uh oh

somehow respect became the silence
and all the love became the weight
we fled the scene of our surrender
packed up our pride before it got too late

I'm burning up and you are frozen
I'm sleeping in and you are tired
but we stood steadfast with what was chosen
no, no
we never gave into desire

still, I keep a watchful set of eyes for you
should you ever feel like showing
and I keep a chorus set aside for you
should you ever feel like singing

I want to play - uh oh

so it's easy to say
we fought a good, clean fight
I'll ship you my blankets
for the cold, cold nights
be my Rosebud in the fire
the broken bridge to Neverland
I'll be your Ruxpin in the attic
playing back what slipped between your hands

what slipped between your hands?
