Details in the Fabric

Album: We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things (2008)
  • Calm down
    Deep breaths
    And get yourself dressed instead
    Of running around
    And pulling on your threads saying
    Breaking yourself up

    If it's a broken part, replace it
    If it's a broken arm then brace it
    If it's a broken heart then face it

    And hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way
    And everything will be fine

    Hang on
    Help is on the way
    Stay strong
    I'm doing everything

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    Hold your own
    Know your name
    And go your own way

    And everything, everything will be fine
    Everything

    Are the details in the fabric
    Are the things that make you panic
    Are your thoughts results of static cling?

    Are the things that make you blow
    Hell, no reason, go on and scream
    If you're shocked it's just the fault
    Of faulty manufacturing

    Everything will be fine
    Everything in no time at all
    Everything

    Hold your own
    And know your name
    Go your own way

    Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
    Are the things that make you panic
    Are your thoughts results of static cling? (Go your own way)

    Are the details in the fabric (Hold your own, know your name)
    Are the things that make you panic (Go your own way)
    Is it Mother Nature's sewing machine?

    Are the things that make you blow (Hold your own, know your name)
    Hell no reason go on and scream
    If you're shocked it's just the fault (Go your own way)
    Of faulty manufacturing

    Everything will be fine
    Everything in no time at all
    Hearts will hold Writer/s: Dan Wilson, Jason Mraz

  • Megan(: from In Your Mind, TxI think it's about not letting a relationship take over your whole life because when you break up...you'll have nothing. I think this because it say "Hold your own, know your name, and go your own way."
