The Planets Bend Between Us

Album: A Hundred Million Suns (2008)
  • The winters mar the Earth
    It's floor was frozen glass
    You slip into my arms
    And you quickly correct yourself
    Your freezing speech bubbles
    Seem to hold your words aloft
    I want the smoky clouds of laughter
    To swim about me forever more

    [Chorus]
    I will race you to the waterside
    And from the edge of Ireland shout out loud
    So they could hear it in America
    It's all for you

    The shells crack under our shoes
    Like punctuation points
    The planets bend between us
    A hundred million suns and stars
    The sea filled in this silence
    Before you sank those words
    And now even in the darkness
    I can see how happy you are

    [Chorus]

    It's all for you [Repeat: x5] Writer/s: NATHAN CONNOLLY, GARY LIGHTBODY, JONATHAN GRAHAM QUINN, TOM SIMPSON, PAUL WILSON
