lyrics

When it’s good, it’s sublime
A convertible drive
Together, the memories good - the injuries healed
Always miss the blind bends
Where we fly off the road
Spinning our wheels in the field

The eggshells I skirt around
Scattered like mines
Never be sure if I’ll crack one this time
Glue back the fragments
To look good as new
Then it tumbles head-first off the wall

We prefer it this way
You’d expect me to say
A forest where sun always shines
The rain plays its part
And clouds where they start from
But you already know what’s on my mind

The eggshells I skirt around...

[bridge]
Do I ask for too much?
A gossamer sculpture
Undone with an unwitting touch

Believe if you can
The breaks are no part of the plan
Hold this piece here - let’s build it anew
