lyrics

REASON TO SING

Out of touch
Reality
Water cuts
Right through your feet
The wooden heart
Starts to dream
Simple shape
Steady beat

Where to run
What to hide
Forget yourself
Til you get it right
Denigrate
Hold your head
So it doesn’t fall off
And you forget

With your reason to sing
Meaning to sing
With your reason to sing
Meaning to sing

Paper cut
Across your finger
Feeling tired
For the night
I can’t say
And you can’t feel
Anything
Til you know it’s real

Said it once
Out of turn
No-one saw
Your mirror turn
Take the plunge
From the sky
Know you’re real
Know you’re mine

With your reason to sing
Meaning to sing
With your reason to sing
Meaning to sing

M E MCCARTHY – 28/11/2010
