Bricks Lyrics by Jenny Owen Youngs

 

Bricks by Jenny Owen Youngs


There's bricks in the yard falling where they flew
I'm sure mom and dad won't give a stitch for one or two
Building no hagards that travel left to right
Building is better but breaking is easy and I don't know which to trust
I think there must be something wrong with me
Like the path that goes unwatched among the very finest edge
My eyes are all wide and my stomach descends
And I'll do whatver you say
I'll say whatever you want if you just put that away
If you just perish that thought
Why can't we be a normal family
And I'll count my footsteps across the garden stones
The faintest love glides six above cement
And rust and bones
And I'll gather my eggshells softly I guess
'Til I have enough to fill up the nest you're on
I'll draw up the blue prints but I'll never use them
Uh huh
Now I've only ever offered you myself and you always say it's not enough
Pray for your paralysis while I'm
While I'm coating for your touch
And I'll do whatver you say
I'll say whatever you want if you just put that away
If you just perish that thought
Oh
You talk about violence like it doesn't exsist
As a fire is a womb and a womb is a fist
And I'll bend with for thee when your tongue comes unglued
But I'll seize up inside if your mouth says it's true
Don't you wanna be a normal family
A normal family
I'm a steel wall
I don't want to see anything at all
I'm a steel wall
I don't need to feel anything at all
I don't want to see anything and I don't need to feel anything
And I don't want to know anything at all
