Build A Home Songtext
I need to be alone tonight This city and her streets A cardboard sign reads help me And I walk on and I run I touch you and you feel me I'm a river, I'm burning, I'm a thief I leave you and your skin and your beauty I leave you and your beauty and your teeth Can you see this blaze flared up From the spark of you Now this trick I've played makes me your slave I'll burn you out, I'll start again I saw my name in your hand I turned around and ran But to you or from you it's all the same To you or from you it's the same thing He says we're all alone He builds himself a home He builds it out of hair and teeth And fingernails and bones He hides it in his heart Then he tears it all apart He plasters all the pieces up With glue and calls it art He's a man with two left shoes He's a pretty cockatoo His song is full of sadness But he's beautiful in blue I need to be alone tonight Alone tonight
