lyrics

Three more steps and you're home again
Dust the dirt out of your hair
One deep breath and the day falls down
Floods of feeling fuel the air

Puff upon your cigarette
Keep your eyes right on the sun
Count the days you don't regret
There's nothing to drag you down

Just 'cause you say it doesn't make it so
Just 'cause you want it doesn't make it yours
Just 'cause you built it doesn't make it safe
Just 'cause you feel it doesn't make it true

Talk until your teeth go numb
Throw your letters through the air
Wider and brighter your eyes dry of water
Pools of sand and clouds of dust

Just one knock and the lock's undone
Pull the cobwebs from your lips
History and songs of love
After all there's only this

Just 'cause you say it doesn't make it so
Just 'cause you want it doesn't make it yours
Just 'cause you built it doesn't make it safe
Just 'cause you feel it doesn't make it true
