Wooden Heart Lyrics

We're all born to broken people on their most honest
day of living
and since that first breath... We'll need grace that
we've never given
I've been haunted by standard red devils and white
ghosts
and it's not only when these eyes are closed
these lies are ropes that I tie down in my stomach,
but they hold this ship together tossed like leaves in
this weather
and my dreams are sails that I point towards my true
north,
stretched thin over my rib bones, and pray that it gets
better
but it won't won't, at least I don't believe it will...
so I've built a wooden heart inside this iron ship,
to sail these blood red seas and find your coasts.
don't let these waves wash away your hopes
this war-ship is sinking, and I still believe in
anchors
pulling fist fulls of rotten wood from my heart, I
still believe in saviors
but I know that we are all made out of shipwrecks,
every single board
washed and bound like crooked teeth on these rocky
shores
so come on and let's wash each other with tears of joy
and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on
this beach
come on and sew us together, tattered rags stained
forever
we only have what we remember

I am the barely living son of a woman and man who
barely made it
but we're making it taped together on borrowed crutches
and new starts
we all have the same holes in our hearts...
everything falls apart at the exact same time
that it all comes together perfectly for the next step
but my fear is this prison... that I keep locked below
the main deck
I keep a key under my pillow, it's quiet and it's
hidden
and my hopes are weapons that I'm still learning how to
use right
but they're heavy and I'm awkward...always running out
of fight
so I've carved a wooden heart, put it in this sinking
ship
hoping it would help me float for just a few more weeks
because I am made out of shipwrecks, every twisted beam
lost and found like you and me scattered out on the sea
so come on let's wash each other with tears of joy and
tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on
this beach
come on and sew us together, just some tattered rags
stained forever
we only have what we remember

My throat it still tastes like house fire and salt
water
I wear this tide like loose skin, rock me to sea
if we hold on tight we'll hold each other together
and not just be some fools rushing to die in our sleep
all these machines will rust I promise, but we'll still
be electric
shocking each other back to life
Your hand in mine, my fingers in your veins connected
our bones grown together inside
our hands entwined, your fingers in my veins braided
our spines grown stronger in time
because are church is made out of shipwrecks
from every hull these rocks have claimed
but we pick ourselves up, and try and grow better
through the change
so come on yall and let's wash each other with tears of
joy and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on
this beach
come on and sew us together, were just tattered rags
stained forever
we only have what we remember
