  • [Chorus]
    How do you do it?
    You make me want to live again
    How do you do it?
    You make me want to live again

    When you wake me in the morning
    That is my favorite thing
    The party is so warming
    As a strikes a chord upon my skin
    Now you sing in the evening
    With the voice that's bouncing like a spring
    A heart is not for breaking
    It's for beating out all the life it needs to begin
    It's for beating out all the life it needs to begin

    [Chorus: x2]

    Have we taken all we're good for?
    Have we registered our love in vain
    A church is not for praying
    It's for celebrating the life that bleeds through the pain
    (It's for celebrating the life that bleeds through the pain)
    It's for celebrating the life that shines through your veins
    (It's for celebrating the life that shines through your veins)
    It's for celebrating the life that bleeds through the pain

    [Chorus: x2]

    If you won't answer you sure are ours
    You make me want to live again
    If you won't answer you sure are ours
    You make me want to live again
    If you won't answer you sure are ours
    How do you do that thing you do?
    If you won't answer you sure are ours
