lyrics

Magnets float downriver, there’s iron in your blood
There’s stone in your bones, and I can feel it
A chemical reaction, a life run on rust
A foe becomes a friend, and I can feel it

Oxygen and an atom, be still my beating heart
A fire that burns in darkness, be still my beating heart
The breath that lights a candle, be still my beating heart
A kite leaps into the wind and a will becomes a life

Footprint like a record, a song in your heart
Listen, it’s a good one, and I can hear it
Ghosts along the wires, echoes down a string
Telling me your story, and I can hear it

Oxygen and an atom, be still my beating heart
A fire that burns in darkness, be still my beating heart
The breath that lights a candle, be still my beating heart
A kite leaps into the wind and a will becomes a life

When the thump of your drum stops beating, and your bagpipes don’t swell
There’s nothing left to do, but wish you well
When the river runs out of water, and the oceans turn to salt
The rains will come again, it’s not your fault

Oxygen and an atom, be still my beating heart
A fire that burns in darkness, be still my beating heart
The breath that lights a candle, be still my beating heart
A kite leaps into the wind and a will becomes a life
