lyrics

A tiny spark in a machine
Helps me glide straight towards a dream
See the world before it disappears

A moving part, interlocked
Breaking glass and a ticking clock
A universe grinding at its gears

I wind it back as far as I can
A simple truth, in a worker’s hands
Cradled me in chaos
Saved me from the dark
I may never know you
I love your beating heart.

A golden thread, sewn through time
Made our lives so intertwined
Stardust melted into steel

In ‘45, we dropped our bombs
And now it seems, we get along
Who am I to break that wheel?

It takes so long to find the proof
To wind it back to a simple truth
You cradled me in chaos
saved me from the dark
I may never know you,

I wind it back to understand
A simple truth, in a worker’s hands
Cradled me in chaos
saved me from the dark
I may never know you,
I love your beating heart.

I may never know you,
I love your beating heart.

I may never know you,
I love your beating heart.
