lifeblood: songs: lyrics: lung of love


i left a kiss in the dark so you'd know when i been
i left a light in my heart so you could find your way in
even though you've been there before
it's been so long since you've come through the door
and i thought i needed to remind you

i'm here to say it's alright i know this globe spins you round
and offer compensation for the sun and the moon
everything i missed in between
oh honey even though i wanted to bring
all of the magic that i found in this world

(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
(ah ah ah)
(hey)
this lung of love
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
this failing breath
the compass of the heart that won't rest
(hey)
the murmer's beat
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
the stalling gait
the compass of the heart that won't wait
(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)

i pray that you get this tune and that it don't leave you lonely
this fruitless sorrow we feel we come by it honestly
so gather me up in your arms
and take me anywhere that don't feel like losing
cause for you this world is dapper and new

(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
(ah ah ah)
(hey)
this lung of love
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
this failing breath
the compass of the heart that won't rest
(hey)
the murmer's beat
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
the stalling gait
the compass of the heart that won't wait
(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
this lung of love
(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
this lung of love
(hey)
(ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah)
this lung of love
(hey)
this lung of love
this lung of love
