the chambers & the valves lyrics – dry the river

the chambers & the valves

two young hearts will meet in the middle,
and a light will flicker on, where there once was none.
where does love come from?
the bodies in the firmament are spinning like a plate;
i was lost in the fission before you came.

i could write this down, i could turn this car around.
in the land of mistakes i should lay my crosses down.
and i pray for your health, and i tell myself
“it’s the chambers and the valves that pump the sentiment around.”
but i swallow the words and i close my mouth.

if every constellation above us has a counterpart below,
how are we to know, dear? how are we to know?
fortune hangs around us like a funerary wreath.
i was down in the heart of the ground beneath.

i could write this down, i could turn this car around.
in the land of mistakes i should lay my crosses down.
and i pray for your health, and i tell myself
“it’s the chambers and the valves that pump the sentiment around.”
but i swallow the words and i close my mouth.

i could write this down, i could turn this car around.
in the land of mistakes i should lay my crosses down.
and i pray for your health, and i tell myself
“it’s the chambers and the valves that pump the sentiment around.”
but i swallow the words and i close my mouth.
