I’ve got heavy boots on my feet
I’ve wandered through my head and through the street
I’m looking for your face in everybody that I meet
But all I get are bruises

I’m sorry, I don’t speak, I only write
I used to talk and talk all through the night
I’ll sculpt you with my hands, I’ll make us feel alright
I’ll try to do it the best I can

Names all jumbled into one face
I can see the place where everything’s alright
Music running through my veins
The words make me feel OK, I’m running from the light
And I’m wearing heavy boots tonight

I’ve searched this city, I’ve searched it low and high
I don’t believe in god up in the sky
If buildings had airbags, you could jump and you wouldn’t die
Can you hear the sound of your heart?

I wish that I could live more than one life through
If I could have another, I’d spend it with you
You know I’m leaving today, but I can’t say that I love you too
Oh, now, but I wish I could


I’ve got heavy boots on my feet
I’ve gotta find the lock, I have the key
I can feel your presence here, from my head to my shoulders and knees
You’d been the roots, and I, I had been the tree
Now who’s gonna be looking after me?
