For Everything Else There is Song

lyrics

that time I folded
you asked me why
I measured my lines
and the blue of the sky

that time I folded
my old poker face
into a paper-made seabird
flown out of the game

well, we both know time in creases
and broken little pieces
and most of all our words have come out wrong
there's a dance for the unspoken and
love-walking unwoken
and for everything else there is song

it’s in your back
and it’s in my hips
a thing we have folded
between the lines in our lips

it burns like a stone
spread beneath a lizard’s grasp
and it breaks like a bone
that I never thought I had

well, we both know time in folds and
things all filled with holes and
to get a little peace took far too long
there's a dance for the unspoken and
love-walking unwoken
and for everything else there is song


well, we both know time in creases
and broken little pieces
and most of all our words have come out wrong
there's a dance for the unspoken and
love-walking unwoken
and for everything else there is song
