Song Lyrics

16th of June, nine-oh-five, doorbell rings
Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer
There’s a few things I need you to know
Three

Coming from a long line of traveling sales people on my mother’s side
I wouldn’t buy just anyone’s cockatoo
Why would I invite a complete stranger into my home?
Would you?

These days are better than that
These days are better than that

Every day I
Die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I
Have to find the courage

To walk out into the street
With my arms out, got a love you couldn’t defeat
Neither down or out
Nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love

16th of June, Chinese stocks are going up
And I’m coming down with some new Asian virus
Ju Ju man, Ju Ju man
Doc says you’re fine or dying, please

Nine-oh-nine, St. John Divine on the line
My pulse is high
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
The band in my head plays a striptease

The roar that lies
On the other side of silence
The forest fire
That’s fear so deny it

Walk out into the street
With your arms out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out, no
Nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Wo-oh-oh-oh-oh

Walk out into a sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
I can breathe
Breathe, I can breathe, love
(I’m so hot)

(I’m so hot now, I’m so hot)

Who we know I’m in the Bowl
Hey sign up from OJ
Ride down, coming down
Down from McHaley in the valley
Uptown Los Angeles
Right out to Pasadena
Yeah
