give us a beat
for our halfway hearts and tenement teeth!
a beat
to fill up the room
they’ll be splitting soon and dancing without feet
a song
when the days are long and your friends have gone
lock the door, it won’t hurt no more
you won’t feel the floor
it’s only love
it’s only love
we did this before it’s only love

and when the record’s done
let it scrape and scratch
let’s drag up the past and dance
so give us a beat
for our halfway hearts and tenement teeth!

it’s only love
it’s only love
we did this before it’s only love

recognized it right from the start
it was the sound of a breaking heart
are we hammering in our nails?
are we taking down the sails?

according to the pages in books
on modern psychology
a broken heart might not restart
and very well might follow me
down into the water, down into the water
and downward we descend
well i kissed your lips of ruby red
and this is what was said

“land”
“land”
“land”
“land”
