lyrics

I Fell In Love With The World Today

One cold November day in the city by the bay
I walk to heal a heart that’s broken
Sent up a little prayer from the city hall stairs
And then my world split open

I pull back the peel, 'til I reveal
A blood orange with the beating veins
I reach in my finger, touch the red quiver
And forever my finger was stained

I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it, no

The city's singing to me
Steel notes blooming
Sirens on their desperate errands

Broken glass arrangement
Sparkle on the pavement
Below the fog horn A flat

Picked up my guitar, write what I saw
But their voices had slipped down the drain
Now deep in my slumber, the rhythm rolls onward
And the melody haunts me again and again and again

I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,
I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,

When you can't hold on, when you can't hold on
When you can't hold on, when you can't hold on,
When you can't hold on

I fell in love with the world today
Fell in love with the world today
I feel my heartbeat slip away
It’s too strong, I just can't take it,
I fell in love with the world, it’s true
With the beauty and the wretchedness too
I feel the pulse jump, stall and fade
I fell in love with the world today

I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
I fell in love with the world today
It’s too strong
