This open sky is painted blue
These curtains kissing in your room
This is the letter I'm gonna send
This is a property condemned

The sleeping hearts
Never understand
Can't hear the song until you dance
We run with scissors in our hands

Ooh, I can feel you in my bones
These are symptoms that I've shown
It's always ever now and then
Life is unusual again

The sleeping hearts
Never understand
Can't hear the song until you dance
We run with scissors in our hands
The sleeping hearts
Never understand
Can't hear the song until you dance
We run with scissors in our hands

So don't ask me for a reason
Don't leave me for a reason
Don't look for me cause I'm runnin'
To fast

The sleeping hearts
Never understand
Can't hear the song until you dance
We run with scissors in our hands
The sleeping hearts
Never understand
Can't hear the song until you dance
We run with scissors in our hands

    General CommentThe lyrics are:
    This open sky is painted blue
    These cousins kissing in your room
    This is a letter I won't send
    This is a property condemned

    Most sleeping hearts will never understand
    You can't hear the song until you dance
    We run with scissors in our hands

    I can feel you in my bones
    These are the symptoms that I've shown
    It's always every now and then
    Life as unusual again

    Most sleeping hearts will never understand
    You can't hear the song until you dance
    We run with scissors in our hands

    Most sleeping hearts will never understand
    You can't hear the song until you dance
    We run with scissors in our hands

    So don't ask me
    For a reason
    Now, don't look at me
    For a reason
    Don't look for me cause I'm running
    Too fast

    Most sleeping hearts will never understand
    You can't hear the song until you dance
    We run with scissors in our hands

    Most sleeping hearts will never understand
    You can't hear the song until you dance
    We run with scissors in our hands

    And according to the man himself, this song is about mistakes.

    General CommentThank you for that correction lol;; this song to me is about being lost in love and the way cinicle people judge love before they've been in love.
