lyrics

We’ve been here many times before,
sunrise breathing through the blinds.
Clothing, like sandbags from a hot air balloon lay useless.
We’d left the earth behind.
One more night, one more desperate search to find that no—
I’m no answer to your prayer.
And I’d forget you if you dared me to.
This isn’t heaven by the farthest stretch of our imagination.
This isn’t it, but it will do.

The sky goes on for days and days.
The heat will take us through the clouds,
but we’re floating between fantasy and a harsh reality that we’re cooling each moment that we climb.
Light a match, but you’re wasting both our time.
And no—I’m no answer to your prayer.
And I’d forget you if you dared me to.
This isn’t heaven by the farthest stretch of our imagination.
Over, and over. Over, and over. And though...
we’ve been here many times before,
sunrise breathing through the blinds.
Clothing, like sandbags from a hot air balloon.
This isn’t it, but it will do.
This isn’t it. But it will do.
