lyrics

My heart like a basement, damp, dark and dirty
secrets in corners, aging wine stored on the cold concrete floors

Rusty pipes pumping, hope for no flooding
electrical breakers switching and flipping just waiting for fixing

I packed in all away, I packed it all away long ago but

If you ask, if you knock,
I’ll open up
Dust my heart off
If you’re bold, strong enough, I’ll find it in me to
love you back as much, love you back as much

My heart like an attic, one ray of sunshine
musty and dusty, photos in deep drawers, old keys to no doors
Like a super 8 film, happy but no sound
play me your music, should be just right to bring me to life

I’m climbing up now, climbing up now, come along

If you ask, if you knock,
I’ll open up
Dust my heart off
If you’re bold, strong enough, I’ll find it in me to
love you back as much, love you back as much

This is my heart

If you ask, if you knock,
I’ll open up
Dust my heart off
If you’re bold, strong enough, I’ll find it in me to
love you back as much, love you back as much
