the quickening of the steps
indecipherable
from the beating in his chest
it's almost bearable
tonight we can dance
to the sound of our breathing
we can all embrace
the feeling that's fleeting

and the beat goes on...

cars and trains
boats and planes
so many ways for love to go astray
afternoons and sunny breaks
never enough to fill the empty space

the shaking of the ground
undetectable
by the simple tools we've got
why does it matter though?
if we can't feel at home
then the world is ending
the braces just won't hold
the sky is collapsing

and the beat goes on...
(call it off and on, turn it off and on)

cars and trains
boats and planes
so many ways for love to go astray
afternoons and sunny breaks
never enough to fill the empty space
