lyrics

i call your name we’ll figure out
If every cloud’s a sacred shroud
we’ll grin and bury breathing doubt
lose track of all we’re left without
there’s a code in the way that you look
and a smile upon your face I’m reading like a burning book
and you’re throwing out a line but always cutting off the hook
you may have given me an inch but it’s much less than you took

i can’t explain we’re in a drought
the words are stuck inside my mouth
we’ll desecrate and kill the peace
if we start saying things we mean
there’s a cost to these imperfect goals
and it might leave me with nothing but I’ll gladly pay the toll
and ignore all the warnings scribbled on the washroom stalls
as they mumble like a storm cloud we can never have it all

these are the words of the prophets sealing cracks in the wall
and the screaming of the teenage girls through all the shopping malls
we can never have it all
