Paralyzed – Sixpence None The Richer

I look out to the fields
Where blood is shed upon the ground
I breathe in, breathe out
Change the channel, mute the sound
I take a match, a cigarette, and a walk to clear my head
Stomach’s reeling at the thought of all those (human beings dead)

I breathe in, breathe out
I’m going to an interview
About a song, three minutes long
I just need something to do
Especially when my dearest friend
Was sent to cover Kosovo
His last assignment brought a bullet
And now he’s gone, he’s gone

Feels like I’m fiddling while Rome is burning down
Should I put my fiddle down, take a rifle from the ground
I need the Ghost to breathe a Northern Gale tonight
’cause I’m paralyzed, I’m paralyzed

I packed his books up, left the office
Went to tell the wife the news
She fell in shock, the baby kicked,
And shed a tear inside the womb
I breathed in, I breathed out,
Soaked the gound up with my eyes
It’s hard to say a healing word
When your tongue is paralyzed

Feels like I’m fiddling while Rome is burning down
Should I put my fiddle down, take a rifle from the ground
God give me strength to pray that You will set things right
’cause I’m paralyzed, I’m paralyzed

Lines of My Earth – Sixpence None The Richer

The lines of my earth, so brittle, unfertile, and ready to die.
I need a drink, but the well has run dry.
And we in the habit of saying the same things all over again,
For the money we shall make.

This is the last song that I write
‘Til you tell me otherwise.
And it’s because I just don’t feel it.
This is the last song that I write
‘Til you tell me otherwise.
And it’s because I just don’t feel it anymore.

It should be our time. This fertile youth’s black soil is ready for rain.
The harvest is nigh, but the well has gone dry.
And they in the habit of saying the same things all over again,
about the money we shall make.

This is the last song that I write
‘Til you tell me otherwise.
And it’s because I just don’t feel it.
This is the last song that I write
‘Til you tell me otherwise.
And it’s because I just don’t feel it anymore.

Soul – Sixpence None The Richer

Tell me father are you riding on
The fictional bus up to heaven above?

Do you listen to the angels on the outskirts…
Have they persuaded you?
Oh tell me father
Perhaps you have been persuaded before
I just want to know where your body and soul
Roam tonight

But I know I’ll never know
Until I pass away to the next life
I know I’ll never know
Where your soul roams tonight
Until I reach the afterlife

Kneeling in this church of stone
On this pew reading my prayer book
“we commend to you Lord
All the souls who have died”
As you walk in the garden
Is the grass broken glass on your feet?
I want to believe when I think how I wasted my chance

And mother and I pray
That it would happen someday
We would find you
Where we’re going

Breathe Your Name – Sixpence None The Richer

It’s every day
I’m in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same
It’s every day
I’m in this place
I feel this way
I feel the same

Is it all inside my head
Is it all inside my head
I’ll view the list
And take my pick
I view my faith
And make a choice
‘Cause it’s nobody else’s but mine

But you are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

So many days within this race
I need the truth
I need some grace
I need the path
To find my place
I need some truth
I need some grace
The part of you
That’s part of me
We’ll never die
We’ll never leave
And it’s nobody else’s but mine

You are in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name

You’ll view the list
And take your pick
You’ll view my faith
And make a choice
‘Cause it’s nobody else’s but yours

And you’re in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name

‘Cause you’re in my heart
I can feel your beat
And you move my mind
From behind the wheel
When I lose control
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
I can only breathe your name
