lyrics

Sticks and stones only break my bones
It’s your words, they rattle like thunderstorms
Under my rib cage and down to my soul
Where they break my heart

Staring at my shoes, though I feel like a king
And I’m not drunk or anything
I’m just looking for the words
To help you believe in the times like these

Stars in my eyes burn holes in my head
As they build paper boats
From the books that I've read
Pages will burn with the stories of men
Who will never reach the shore

But they’ll sail like the devil
And they’ll bellow like kings
All drunk on the wine and everything
As they recite the lines of the songs,
They will to believe

Row faster
Row faster and take me home
I don’t want to die here at sea

Sticks and stones only break my bones
It’s your words, they rattle like thunderstorms
Under my rib cage and down to my soul
Where they break my heart

Staring at my shoes, though I feel like a king
And I’m not drunk or anything
I’m just looking for the words
To help you believe in me

Yeah, I feel like a king
Though I’m staring at my shoes
Like a long distance call
From the home of the blues
And I’m looking for the words in me
I’m looking for the words
And I don’t wanna die here at sea
