think of the desert dirt. then imagine rainfall. compare it to love. it's sticky business.
I’ve been thinking lately about a thing we call love / head over, feet forward, walking down, gaining ground, losing, sweet sweet love / I’ve tried each time to pursue hidden clues / knee deep I got stuck in mud / stained and tainted I walked on ‘till I could see through the clouds / and there you were / an answer to the pains that were keeping me sore / you let me in but then you slammed my fingers in the door / when I say go you think I’m asking you for more / here comes the rain, just walk away // chorus: dirt turns sticky / we’re stuck knee deep / in this thing we call love / this could be love, this could be // I once saw a man cross the street with bare feet / frozen, a smile on his face / splintered and cold he tried to keep warm / with a coat from his past life / to my surprise / he started running ‘till he reached the other side / into her arms wide open, they began to cry / I can’t say for sure but I think the world just might / have witnessed true love that day //chorus// oh what can we say / when we know nothing about the way this could go / and I will try a thousand times ‘till it feels right / it might feel right a thousand times / you think you love me / I’m tired and thirsty / dry mouths we both dive in / but refuse to swim / why do we confuse our hearts with all of these games? / roll the dice and wait for them to walk our way / we’ve all got filthy scars and souls made out of clay / won’t you let love shape yours today? //chorus//
