Lyrics

Soft, like a bed of leaves
Under feet
But you come up
With twigs in your hair
And bloody knees

A body that aches
From trying to make ends meet
Too old to make excuses
Too young to be complete

You shake the feeling free from the branches
Unfurl the clenching of your palm
Empty feeling everywhere and nowhere
Different tunes to the same song
Different tunes to the same song

Across the silver sea
You leave me
With no direction to go
But a place to be
Stolen moments make today easy to waste
But, ashamed of what you've borrowed
Will not look me in the face

You shake the feeling free from the branches
Unfurl the clenching of your palm
Empty feeling everywhere and nowhere
Different tunes to the same song
Different tunes

A melody that dances along
A melody that's dancing along
A melody that's dancing along
To different tunes of the same song

Rough but tender
Something sharp makes it bleed
Searching the pieces of my heart
For what's real underneath
Rotting or ripening
A dagger cloaked and sheathed
Old enough to know better
Too young to be complete

You shake the feeling free from the branches
Unfurl the clenching of your palm
Empty feeling everywhere and nowhere
Different tunes to the same song
Different tunes, different tunes
Different tunes to the same song
Different tunes to the same song
