Lyrics


More than I Can Bear


A line in the sand
A bird in the hand
The sun a blazing ribbon
It's all that we've been given
It's more than I can bear

A handful of dust
A sky full of rust
The moon a cloud-drenched swimmer
We barely catch a glimmer
It's more than I can bear

Day by day
Comes our way....
Day by day
Slips away....

A bold silhouette
A cold cigarette
A burnt out casanova
A kiss and then it's over
It's more than I can bear

Day by day
Slips away....
Day by day
Comes our way....

Every little thing turns on....
Every little thing shines on....
Every little thing hangs on....
Every little thing moves on......

I know the chord doesn't resolve
I know the world doesn't revolve
It falls on me
It falls on you

The lockstep of time
The turn on a dime
The lie inside the laughter
It's not what I was after
But more than I can bear

Day by day
Comes our way....
Day by day
Slips away....

Every little thing turns on....
Every little thing shines on....
Every little thing hangs on....
Every little thing moves on......

A line in the sand....
A line in the sand....
