when you sing


it’s just a funny little symbol
she tattooed on her wrist
as if to show me
what i might have missed

as if the ocean had a curtain
and the moon took center stage
and the problems that surround us
could show the way

it’s like parts of my heart
are living in central park
and a part of my being
walks the city streets
and the start of my breath
is the first to confess
it’s in the way you close your eyes
when you sing
when you sing

(so you could say)
i’m in love with your darkness
and could i be your crutch
and every night when the moon rises
i’ll think of us
I’ll think of us
yeah ah ah

it’s like parts of my heart
are living in central park
and a part of my being
walks the city streets
and the start of my breath
is the first to confess
and the first to sing

I love your tragedy oh baby
your singing voice when you sing out of key
but most of all
it’s in the way you close your eyes
when you sing

parts of my heart
are living in the dark
and it’s hard to believe but there’s rhythm in the leaves
and you’re not wrong when you said you don’t need me
it's in the way you close your eyes
when you sing

when you sing
it's in the way you close your eyes
when you sing
when you sing

it's in the way you close your eyes
when you sing
when you sing
