Lyrics

Brick and Mortar

I rub my hands and absorb the heat
Radiating up through the passenger seat
The engine idles silent in the bitter cold
The light shines through, a clean grey slate
A whisper of blue and the weary weight
of hearts too heavy for our hands to hold

The hurt comes quick, the words come late
Hours spent on an expiry date
We both have other places we should be
The chance we had has passed us by
A stray plane in a neutral sky
A tear stain drying on a jacket sleeve

Hearts can pound through brick and mortar
Cornerstones are crumbling into dust
Walls come down, I come up short
I wanted more
I wanted more, I wanted more of us

The walls lean in, the roof has caved
One more thing that we can't save
Time and change will win no matter how we try
It's hard to say no and hard to say when
To tear it all down or build it up again
There's a gentle art in saying goodbye

Hearts can pound through brick and mortar
Cornerstones are crumbling into dust
Walls come down, I come up short
I wanted more,
I wanted more, I wanted more of us.
