bricks and steel lyrics – frank ocean

“bricks and steel”

if a tree fell in the forest
and no one was around to hear it
baby, does it go boom?
does it go boom?
if i have love for ya
but you were never close enough to feel it
is my love any good?
is my love any good?
oh…

but the distance ain’t even a room away
you’re laying in the bed right next to me
but there might as well be a brick wall in between us
some soundproof gl*ss
and some bars in the middle
oh baby, when i wanna talk to you
i’m conversing with bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel
and when i tap your shoulders
you’re cold as bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel

and how do i stay in love with you
ravish all the the leftovers and garbage
was it ever real
if you were never here?
bricks and steel, walk around the kitchen
like a pile of bricks and steel…
bricks, bricks
steel, steel…

i know you’re somewhere in there…
sometimes i wanna pick up a hammer
and start chiseling away, away…
chiseling away, away…
girl my phone bill is crazy
the rate is sky high when i call ya
but you only let it ring
you only let it ring, no ohh…

but the distance ain’t even a room away
you’re laying in the bed right next to me
oh but there might as well be a brick wall in between us
some soundproof gl*ss
and some bars in the middle
oh baby, when i wanna talk to you
i’m conversing with bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel
and when i tap your shoulders
you’re cold as bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel

and how do i stay in love with you
ravish all the leftovers and garbage
was it ever real
if you were never here?
bricks and steel, walk around the kitchen
like a pile of bricks and steel
bricks, bricks
steel, steel…

stomp, stomp
i think i hear ’em coming down the hall
he don’t hear a word i say at all
i’m wishing these 4 walls could talk, talk…
oh, stomp, stomp
i think i hear ’em coming down the hall and
he don’t hear a word i said ohh, ohhh ohhh…

oh baby, when i wanna talk to you
i’m conversing with bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel
and when i tap your shoulders
you’re cold as bricks and steel
a pile of bricks and steel

and how do i stay in love with you
ravish all the leftovers and garbage
was it ever real
if you were never here?
bricks and steel, walk around the kitchen
like a pile of bricks and steel…
bricks, bricks
steel, steel…
