lyrics

A simple rhyme to seal the new
Something borrowed, something blue
But the ending’s not as clean
Something hard and something mean

So tunnel down into the dirt
Or raze the city, salt the earth
Buried deep without a sound
Or ashes ashes on the ground

Doesn’t matter what you need
Choose the leaf or choose the seed
One is just a hard-shelled dream
One is broken by a breeze

So make a map of where it hurts
Make a list of which is worse
And let it all come tumbling down
Ashes ashes all around

No
If I don’t feel it I won’t go
If the sky is falling down
I’m still rooted to the ground
No one’s going home

No
My heart tells me so
Tied down to the mast
If this ain’t gonna last
Baby, you should know
I won’t go down alone

Take it back, take it back
