the line that ties me lyrics – julia stone

the line that ties me

the walls are talking and the only person who can hear me is nearly gone.
i stand by your bedside, on the edge of words
that i can’t say, for the fear that i might fall.
maybe i’m afraid that the pictures that i paint,
won’t capture the beauty of you.
and the last thing that you hear is the silence in your ears,
as i sink beneath the weight of it all.

i could call you my lover, call you a beast,
call you the island, where faith doesn’t reach.
call you a lion, call you a man,
you’re the line that ties me to things.
i don’t understand.

your smile as you wither, is as pretty as the picture,
you wouldn’t sell to the lady next door.
you tell me music and art, it doesn’t have a price,
it’s for the heart, i should give it away,
use it for the freedom of us all.

i could call you my lover, call you a beast,
call you the island, where faith doesn’t reach.
call you a lion, call you a man,
you’re the line that ties me to things.
i don’t understand.
