lyrics

You with the scissors and me with the thread
Smile knowingly at the newlyweds
"Now's not the time for truth," you said.
So we danced through the night, instead.

You with unlimited time on your hands
Me always making indefinite plans
Drawing our dream house on quick sand
The foundation shifts but the building still stands

The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.
The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.

Now you're in the kitchen with telescope eyes
I'm still in bed rehearsing goodbye
The dream scatters the coffee grinds
Shared memories to review and revise.

The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.
The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.

A part of me is fixed with you.
The seam will hold us; the seam will pull us through.

The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.
The thread we sewed into our hearts
Draws us in close; pulls us apart.
