lyrics

All through the day I congruently played
A game where blocks fell in and out of place
My life was Tetris pieces when you came
My arm was outstretched and so was yours
Ten fingertips touching
Encircling the whole of the world between our palms

If we had ever actually been
More than part time believers of anything
We would’ve slipped and our palms would’ve touched
The whole world tumbling down and poetically crushed
So you held your end while I held mine
Ten fingertips touching we divided our lives
We held the world up with our sweating palms
While we held no one

So in August I paced myself recollecting
All the things we were and we would never be
I became just like water so stunningly weak
I was the rubber baby you were the glue
Trying to get over this always stuck back to you
But you, you were stuck too

If we had ever actually been
More than part time believers of anything
We would’ve slipped and our palms would’ve touched
The whole world tumbling down and poetically crushed
So you held your end while I held mine
Ten fingertips touching we divided our lives
We held the world up with our sweating palms
While we held no one

You were stuck too
