Better Worlds

by Jacob Amateur

SONG LYRICS

Oh homeless heart
where have you gone
these broken parts
they don’t belong
The sky above
my sleepy head
says goodnight my love
we can dream instead
of a broken town
we knock around
and for a while
it made a smile
if we should fall
we lose it all
but just don’t cry
we never die
I cross my heart
and hope to fly
throw a kiss
Up to the sky
stick out my tongue
to catch the rain
the storm is over
there’s no more pain
broken down
and knocked around
And for a while
it made her smile
If she should fall
we lose it all
just don’t cry
we never die
but just hold tight
there’s going to be a brilliant light don’t go fast
into that last good night
for a better world awaits us
Soon
