When you curse your name
I'm a receiver
When your heart won't change
I'm a receipt
Do I love like a stranger?
The world keeps getting stranger all the time

And the distance is greater
Than any rope I ever tied around your waist to keep our tumbles in rhythm (Rhythm)
In rhythm (Rhythm)

Oh a heart is a pocket for loose change
We scrape and we save and we wait for a raise

Did you watch as our muscles divided
In rhythm (Rhythm)
In rhythm (Rhythm)

I cursed being a man
I cursed being the driver
I let go of the wheel some time last year
Then I sang to you in shifts
Until the mountains folded over
And your wrongs went through my wrist so you could sin

I love the world
I want to take it with me

    General CommentThis song is amazing and beautiful. I'm not sure about the meaning of the whole song, but I love the lines:
    Oh a heart is a pocket for loose change
    We scrape and we save and we wait for a raise
    To me they mean that we all take what love we can get and save it up with hungry fingers. But, we're never quite satisfied and never well off like that, so we wait for that "one love" to come along and fulfill the needs we have.
