A Lot Like Birds - Divisi lyrics
You told me to smile because at least we're both alive, and I smiled just for you
And there's truth in what you said, but I can't clear the mantra, chanting, singing in my head
It tells me life's a brittle bone – it says the meat of life is d**h
These are dashes on a timeline, we're just segments of a dash
Hardly present now, not built to last
All the magic, every moment, dies and turns into the past, to be forgotten as the line expands
I hope the two of us are bound together, eternally entwined
I hope the waves we make swim out forever, echoing you and I
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/a-lot-like-birds/divisi/divisi.html]
But doesn't everybody hope for something, knowing nothing stands a chance at lasting?
Pleading our cases that we're too important, spending our seconds angry at their pa**ing
But doesn't everybody hope for something, knowing none of us are meant to make it?
Blindly believing that we're the exception, beating our chests and screaming I am sacred
But I know, we were made to be unmade, tied with strings designed to fray
I just want our knot together, it's holding now but not forever
Someone or thing has got to pay, it's given too much to take away
I just want a legacy – I just want it all to never fade
Don't we all arrive at the same place where we began?
Don't we all arrive where we began?
