lyrics

every vein runs back to the heart
i thought i could stand it
i don’t stand a chance

and i found you here
while i was digging this hole
the one where i keep things
under control
and you go to show that no-one can say
that i won’t dig up what i bury today

‘cause every time blood runs back through my heart
a part of me ends up back where it starts

so shovel in tow i walk back to the road
whose tunnels and channels
i already know and while there’s
always some new hoop to jump through
every step that i take i can trace back to you

‘cause every vein runs back to the heart

should i be apologetic or can i admit that i’m not
asking the rules to change or getting the seasons to stop
coming around
but as happiness surges off on its course
ambition will tempt it away from its source
by the palm of its hand
through the valleys and hills
from the sound of the heart as it empties and fills

so next time you’re out
look up at the stars
and know what you’re seeing is all in the past
and if it’s never the time
i’m asking how you
can say it’s too late when it still feels
too soon

‘cause every time blood runs back through my heart
a part of me ends up back where it starts
