Death Cab for Cutie - Your Heart is an Empty Room

Burn it down ‘til the embers smoke on the ground,
and start new when your heart is an empty room
with walls of the deepest blue.

Home’s face—how it ages when you’re away.
The spring blooms and you find the love that’s true..
but you don’t know what now to do,
‘cause the chase is all you know,
and she stopped running months ago.

And all you see is where else you could be
when you’re at home,
and out on the street
are so many possibilities to not be alone.

The flames and smoke climbed out of every window
and disappeared with everything that you held dear,
but you shed not a single tear for the things that you didn’t need,
‘cause you knew you were finally free.

‘Cause all you see is where else you could be
when you’re at home,
and out on the street
are so many possibilities to not be alone.

And all you see is where else you could be
when you’re at home..
And there on the street
are so many possibilities to not be alone.

These lyrics are by Death Cab for Cutie, from Your Heart is an Empty Room. Posted at 6:56am on 9 September 2006.
