lyrics

Put your heart into an envelope
go send it through the mail
all the words you used
to build your homes and cities out of
were constructed to fail

write your name out with a sparkler
lose your letters in the flame
know that nothing burns as furious
and blue and hopeless
as a paper airplane

but I'm not lost
you will find
you count the cost
of all the lights behind you
waste my time

hang the heavy things with fishing line
tie the fragile ones with rope
wash my hands of you
until the water runs out frozen
this time I will use soap

'cause I'm not lost
you will find
I count the cost
of all the lights behind me
left behind
