lyrics

When We Are Soil

These bricks are old, these bricks are old.
Older than my great, great grandfather.
These bricks I know, these bricks I know,
Will be here long, long after,
Silence blankets my laughter,
And I am soil.

These beams are old, these beams are old,
Older than the country, the country that claimed you,
These beams I know, these beams I know,
These beams will not fail you,
Till Silence blankets your laughter
And you are soil

Yesterday’s stranger is kind,
Brings me strong coffee and the finest of wines.
Sometimes I feel like I’ve had nine lives already,
Going to need nine more to match the kindness that has met me.

The birds are singing they go chirp, chirp, chirp,
Oh so loose with their secrets now that spring has come,
I have time, I have space, I have you, I have love,
Love that will be here long, long after,

These bricks turn to dust,
These beams pull down the rafters,
And we are soil,
And we are soil,
And we are soil.
And we are soil,
And we are soil,
And we are soil.
