Tiny Moving Parts Stay Warm Lyrics

Let the water freeze on the doorstep

Keep inside all the worries in your head

Stay warm like a sweater on an old man

How do you sleep at night, I wonder

Does the tension leave your bed?

I’ve asked myself this question once or twice

But I can’t comprehend

I just wanna be remembered

As the staple that held the pages together

Is this too much to ask for?

I just wanna be remembered

Like the weather in the winter

So brisk, so fresh, so strong

Never lose your focus

Your sense of direction

Is this too much to ask for?

I just wanna be remembered like a flood in the spring

You will find beauty in the act of drowning

You’ll lose your focus

The notes, the purpose

Your sense of direction

You’ve lost your motive

I just wanna be remembered (lost your motive)

Like the weather in the winter

So brisk, so fresh, so strong (lost your motive)

Never lose your focus

Your sense of direction

Is this too much to ask for?

(Tell me) If these callused hands

(Tell me) Brushed the skin on your back

(Tell me) Would it make you warm and content

(Tell me) Or would your spinal cord collapse?

(Tell me) If these callused hands (if these callused hands)

(Tell me) Brushed the skin on your back

(Tell me) Would it make you warm and content (would it make you warm)

(Tell me) Or would your spinal cord collapse?

Would it collapse?

Let the wind chimes get the spotlight

They promise to sing us a lullaby

If they ever know we’re listening (If they ever…)

They’ll shut our eyes

Let the water freeze on the doorstep

Keep inside all the worries in your head
