Listen to the sound your heart makes
A feeling you have can't be wrong
Attitudes can change & the bridge breaks
But the music of spirit plays on

The backup band will make mistakes
But I'll just keep playing along
Listen to the sound your heart makes
Cause it'll be gone before long

Five guitars
& they all look like yours
& I wish that you could see them
& hear the songs they've played

Five guitars
A constellation without stars
If the symmetry's uneven
How can we see straight?

Oh listen to the words you can't say
There's a shadow that cloaks every sound
What is it about my birthday?
Everything gets turned around

Listen to the music your heart plays
Record it & write it down
Everything is seen at least two ways:
From the clouds & from underground

Five guitars
Oh, we've all been too far
& the myth says keep on going
But soon enough you'll fade

Five guitars
I don't know where you are
Oh, but what's the use of knowing?
The choice is already made

I listen to the things your eyes say
But there's something that I can't translate
Something that's cold like an autumn day
Something that stayed up too late

The room is filled with music I can't play
At least not in my current state
Listen to me now, I can't stay
The urge to forget is too great, oh yeah

Five guitars
& they all look like ours
& I bet you'd like to see them
& hear the sounds they've made
