Architecture of Your Face


There's a land of skin and bone

where all our scars and bruises show

it's the only place tonight I want to be-

a wilderness where I was meant to roam,

tend things that grow outside the stone on stone.

Take me anywhere between the stars and the sea


And I know it won't be easy,

but I think it's worth it anyway...


And so we are among the lucky ones

who just escaped the raging of the guns.

There are better uses for our bodies than this fight.

It didn't take the city long to burn;

now there's a whole world waiting to relearn

the courage it can take to just lie down at night


And I know it won't be easy

but I think it's worth it anyway...


And I can see a stretch of land

where ancient buildings used to stand

before the trees and weeds reclaimed the place,

where broken dreams lie underground,

the only structure to be found

is the architecture of your face, the architecture of your face


and I know it won't be easy

but I think it's worth it anyway...
