Listen to me, please sit down and stay,
i'm going to build a castle and hide away,
gather moonbricks from the ground,
i'll build a castle that won't fall down.
and when i'm done,
the clock will stop
and from my head will come bright flowers.

i don't know, i can't contain my heartbeat,
i am dancing, shrouded by green trees.
i am whirling, wearing my sunfeet,
and humming children to sleep.

i love to watch the light you spread to the room,
see how it dances from you, to me, to you?
with our laughter, bright white sound,
i'll build a castle that won't fall down.
and when i'm done,
the clock will stop
and from my head will come bright flowers.

soft sweet music makes me sleep, when it is magical.
let it draw you to the castle

    General CommentI love the drum/guitar booming before the third chorus. Do you know what I'm talking about? It defines the song.

    General CommentA lot of the lyrics have actually been changed. You should check out straylight6.org and listen to the new version.

    General CommentListen to me, please sit down and stay
    I'm gonna build a house and hide away
    Gather timber from the ground
    I'll build a castle that won't fall down
    And when I'm done
    The clock will stop and from
    Our heads will come bright flowers

    I don't know, I can't contain my heartbeat
    I am dancing, shrouded by green trees
    I am whirling, wearing my sun feet
    And humming children to sleep

    I love to watch the light you spread to the room
    See how it dances from you to me to you
    With our laughter, bright white sound
    I'll build a castle that won't fall down
    And when I'm done
    The clock will stop and from
    Our heads will come bright flowers

    I don't know, I can't contain my heartbeat
    I am dancing, shrouded by green trees
    I am whirling, wearing my sun feet
    And humming children to sleep

    Soft, sweet music makes me sleep
    Calling my mind away, oh
    Resting faces calm and quiet

    General CommentI do love this band, but the verses and chorus feel like they belong to two different songs. Hmm...
    Best part of the song - the way she says "from you to me to you", and how it's not quite on the beat, but suspended over. Haunting.
