there is no standing room for you
there is no better way to prove
just broken pieces of a broken vase that used to hold me
we breathe and blow another kiss
is there no better way to tiss
to break the bonds to breathe the innocence

a little baby cries
he tries to understand
this world that left him down
this one he left behind
I thought you were better but you
you didn’t even know him

you didn't have the time
you didn't seem to mind
another building breaks
throwing everybody down

what were we hoping to become
we seemed so different from above
the sky would fall if only we’d opened up our eyes to see it
we breathe and blow another kiss
is there no better way to miss
to break the bonds to bring me innocence
I thought that you should know

your skin is cold like mine
I wanted you to stay
but you wanted me to go and so we say goodbye to
this ornamental moment

we didn’t have the time
we didn’t seem to mind
another building breaks
throwing everybody down
this is the game we play
this is the life we save
and so we turn the page on another moment

you didn’t have the time
you didn’t seem to mind
another building breaks
throwing everybody down
this is the game we play
this is live we save
and so we turn the page on another moment

    General Commentthis is such a great song.... but could it be "is there no better way than this"? we won't appreciate things unless we take the time to see them.
