kept lyrics – matt nathanson

“kept”

i watched the flames slow and strange
make the walls fill my eyes
i heard your voice through the noise
i was cold and it was warm inside

and i should have kept my head
i should have kept my arms inside
i believe it now
i should have kept my head
i should have kept my heart, my heart

shooting stars, falling leaves
the more things change, the more i sleep
i took her heart, i licked her wounds
and when morning came, it felt like truth

and i should have kept my hands
i should have kept my arms inside
i believe you now
i should have kept my head
i should have kept my heart, my heart

i’m on my knees
and i should have kept my hands
i should have kept my arms inside
yeah i believe you now
i should have kept my head
i should have kept my heart, my heart
