something like laughter lyrics – five iron frenzy

people say they know a girl
who’s lost her way, she’s always angry
no one bothers to ask her
what she hears or what she hopes for
the air is cold, she lives alone
and tires of being her only provider
she can’t fathom grace tonight
no not tonight, it’s not an option

searching for more than mere tastes of living water
tired eyes tend to wander, seek the light
create in her a sense of awe that sees your beauty
let your splendor flash with blinding light

cities slowly suffocate
what once was bright is now moth-eaten
as young girls filter thoughts that once were
fresh now worn and beaten
clutching pity like a prize
to her side her fingers grow weary
he cares so much for sparrows
won’t he toss something out my way?

searching for more than mere lies disguised as dogma
tired eyes tend to wander, seek the light
create in her a sense of awe that sees your beauty
let your splendor flash with blinding light
standing tall, all the aspen trees drink water
as the rain falls down like laughter from the sky
