Roadworks

lyrics

Two cities, too busy, toothpaste on my shirt.
Two years, you look pretty in your black skirt.
Three minutes away from missing my train,
three secrets away from understanding your brain a little bit more

See you next time, words pass by like weeks.
I walk down the roadworks in our street
And I knock on your door with a stone in my chest,
Hoping for your soul to pave the road back

Brick by brick and word by word
I will understand how you walk this world
Patiently I’m waiting for you under the avocado tree

You’re lying in a hospital bed
Greasy hair, yesterday’s clothes, tomorrow’s not planned.
So what about taking time and wasting it?
Go lose our minds and keys

Soon you’ll be gone and I’ll stand here
on this big pile of questions.
Maybe next year we’ll find us roaming on concrete
feeling grass growing under our feet

Brick by brick and word by word
I will understand how you walk this world
Patiently I’m waiting for you under the avocado tree

Brick by brick
