lyrics

a part of me is sure
nothing can go wrong
the other part is,
much bigger and it
isn't sure at all
in fact it
thinks the sky is falling
isn't it?

a beautiful world when you're not
quite awake
and laying next to someone
warm in the brace of his arms
and he kisses great
running the length of his spine
with your fingers and
bury your face in his chest whispering
i think the sky is falling, is it?

a part of me is sure
nothing can go wrong
the other part is
much bigger and it
thinks the sky is falling
isn't it?

last night i had a dream you and i
were laying awake at sunrise
and as daylight appeared through the blinds
i asked you what was on your mind
a hurricane, a hurricane, you replied
a hurricane is on its way and it will
flatten everything in sight
and i asked, can't we drive away
but you said no
and you told me there'd be no survivors and that
love doesn't make it either

so we just laid half awake
