I walk the tightrope
On my way home.
You're my backbone,
I know you're somewhere close behind me.
I walk the fault line
In a dirt field,
In the spring time,
I feel the wind start to remind me
Of you.
(You)
And the sweet talk on the sidewalk..
Yeah, it's true.
(It's true)

All I know is,
All we have is what's left today.
Hearts so pure in this broken place,
Cause we are, we are, we are
(We are),
We are, we are, we are
(We are),
Lovers lost in space,
Searching for our saving grace.

And I still remember how your lips taste on holidays.
You leave in December,
What can I do to make you stay?
Cause we won't fade away,
We'll find peace while others change,
And I know you're somewhere close behind me,
And it's true
(true),
Oh the sweet sound in the background,
Yeah, it's you
(It's you).

All I know is,
All we have is what's left today.
Hearts so pure in this broken place,
Cause we are, we are, we are
(We are),
We are, we are, we are
(We are),
Lovers lost in space,
We're searching for our saving grace.

Oh yeah,
We're searching for our saving grace.
Oh yeah.
Keep on searching,
Keep on searching,
Keep, keep,
Keep, keep,
Keep on searching,
Keep on searching,
Keep, keep,
Keep, keep..

I walk the tightrope,
You're my way home,
You're my backbone,
You'll always be here right beside me.

All we have is what's left today.
Hearts so pure in this broken place,
Cause we are, we are, we are
(We are),
Cause we are, we are, we are
(We are),
Lovers lost in space,
We're searching for our saving grace.
(Keep on searching)
(Keep on searching)
Our saving grace,
(Keep on searching)
We're searching for our saving grace.

    Lyric Correctionaccording to the band in their iTunes LP, it's supposed to be "all we have is what's left today, hearts so pure in this broken place"

    Song MeaningThis song sort of speaks for itself. She's leaving and they're both stuck somewhere they can't get out because of that. & They're just searching for an answer because she's the reason he's still breathing and they want to stay together.

    I used to take it another way. "Searching for our saving grace" sort of made me think they hadn't met yet, but i can see how that's not right.

    This is one of my favorite songs of all time (hence my username). The Maine has grown so much since 2007. I feel like a proud mamma (':
