  • The birds have left their trees
    The light pours onto me
    I can feel you lying there all on your own
    We got here the hard way
    All those words that we exchange
    Is it any wonder things get broke?

    Cause in my heart and in my head
    I'll never take back the things I said
    So high above, I feel it coming down
    She said, in my heart and in my head
    Tell me why this has to end
    Oh, no, oh, no

    I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall
    We built this town on shaky ground
    I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no
    We built it up to pull it down

    Now all the birds have fled
    The hurt just leaves me scared
    Losing everything I've ever known
    It's all become too much
    Maybe I'm not built for love
    If I knew that I could reach you, I would go

    It's in my heart and in my head
    You can't take back the things you said
    So high above, I feel it coming down
    She said, in my heart and in my head
    Tell me why this has to end
    Oh, no, oh, no

    I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall
    We built this town on shaky ground
    I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no
    We built it up to pull it down

    And we build it up and we build it up
    And we build it up to pull it down
    And we build it up and we build it up
    And we build it up to pull it down

    I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall
    We built this town on shaky ground
    I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh, no
    We built it up to pull it down
