lyrics

There has to be an end to all of this self-reference
Like a paradox should kick in and help us to buck the trend
I could tell you of the day I didn’t tell a lie
But I couldn’t if I even tried, I couldn’t if I even tried

And they tell us that we’ll do just what feels right
And they’re wrong because I don’t put up a fight

It was a ‘pass it on before it burns your fingers’ kind of love
It was a ‘celebrate your losses like a trooper’ kind of love
It was a ‘hold on tight the whole damn time, we’re falling’ kind of love
Yeah I suppose that when all’s said and done it was a kind of love

Swirling round the floorboards are the things we never said
‘cause they shivered in our cold feet and moved elsewhere instead
And I cannot explain away what happened on that bitter day
I cannot explain it away, but I’ll try anyway

And they tell us that we’ll do just what feels right
And they’re wrong because I don’t put up a fight

It was a ‘pass it on before it burns your fingers’ kind of love
It was a ‘celebrate your losses like a trooper’ kind of love
It was a ‘hold on tight the whole damn time, we’re falling’ kind of love
Yeah I suppose that when all’s said and done it was a kind of love

And it can’t all be that bad
And we’ve seen the sky this grey
And I am pulling out the stops to make these old words fade away
Let them all just fade away

It was a ‘pass it on before it burns your fingers’ kind of love
It was a ‘celebrate your losses like a trooper’ kind of love
It was a ‘we’ll never make it out of here in one piece’ kind of love
It was a ‘can’t you tell it’s hot as hell and growing’ kind of love
It was a ‘hold on tight the whole damn time we’re falling’ kind of love
It was a ‘hold on tight the whole damn time we’re falling’ kind of love
It was a ‘hold on tight ‘cause “oh my god we’re falling”’ kind of love
Yeah I suppose that when all’s said done it was a kind of love
