Song Lyrics

16th of June, nine-oh-five, door bell 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
So 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
Arms out
Not knowing defeat
Neither down nor out, hey
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
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 fine
But I’m running down the road like loose electricity
While the band in my head plays a striptease

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

Walk out into the street
With our arms out
The people we meet
Are neither down or out, hey
There’s nothing you have that I need
I can breathe
Breathe, love
Sugar babe

Ooo, real slow
Ooo, really me a soul

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

Walk out
Into a sunburst street
Sing your heart now
Sing your heart Massachusetts
I’ve found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all that I found
Soon I breathe
Breathe, love

I can breathe
I can breathe
