This is an invisible song
From an invisible man
Lost in the wilderness
Of a static avalanche
I started out with wonder
With air on my teeth
Careful what you wish for
There's something underneath

Because the world
Is held together
With lies and promises
And broken hearts
And brand new days
For you to start
All over again
All over again
All over again

She's standing in the doorway
She's taking off my shirt
No one could have told me
One day this would hurt
I'm moving through Manhattan
In the back seat of a cab
And all that ever happens
That's all we'll ever have

'Cause the world
Is held together
With lies and promises
And broken hearts
And brand new days
For you to start
All over again
All over again
All over again

Now some will say it's maudlin
And some will say bullshit
But there's no living without living
And the living shows you this

That the world
Is held together
With lies and promises
And broken hearts
And brand new days
For you to start
All over again
All over again
All over again
