The birds have left the trees
The light bores onto me
I can feel you lying there all on your own.
We got here the hard way
All the words that we exchanged
Is it any wonder things get broke?

'Cause in my heart and in my head
I'll never take back the things I said
So I am bold
I feel it coming down, she said
In my heart and in my head
Tell me why this has to end
Oh no, oh no

I can't save us, my Atlantis we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh no
We built it up to pull it down

Now all the birds have fled,
The hurt just leaves me scared
Losing everything I've ever known
It's all become too much
Maybe I'm not built for love
If I knew that I could reach you I would go

It's in my heart and in my head
You can't take back the things you said
So I am bold
I feel it coming down, she said
In my heart and in my head
Tell me why this has to end
Oh no, oh no

I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh no
We build it up to pull it down

Yeah we build it up and we build it up
And we build it up to pull it down
Yeah we build it up and we build it up
And we build it up to pull it down

I can't save us, my Atlantis, we fall
We built this town on shaky ground
I can't save us, my Atlantis, oh no
We build it up to pull it down
