Cavetown - Rocket Ships lyrics

[Verse 1] On summer nights the stars fall a little slower and I don't if I can catch them in time to sew words Delicately to the palm of my hand, tell me What am I worth? Do you see words written in the air Or is it just me forming pictures from nowhere I have funny little comic books taped to my hands And a brain within a brain, it's got a mind of it's own, yeah [Chorus] Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me "What was I worth?" I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow [x2] [Verse 3] On summer nights my thoughts form a little vaguer and I don't know how to arrange them or put them into words Now I'm leaving bashful teardrops in my hands Please tell me I'm a man Do you think aliens in outer space Think that they're the only human race My mind's a house of magic cards about to blow away, yeah I'm just a shoot and I'm not ready to grow yet [Chorus] Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me "What was I worth?" I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow [x2] [Verse 5] Would it be okay for me to stay If okay is here then I'm far away And the train's not leaving for a while I packed by bags but they've emptied themselves somehow The thought of meaning something just makes my brain Twist, invert, and fall down sideways But my voice is a spark so let me sing 'til the fire's so bright it's deafening [Chorus] Rocket ships will take off whether you're in them or not And it's sad but it's the truth, the world would still turn without you But when your bones turn to earth and you ask me 'what was I worth?' I'll simply plant a flower above you, and you can watch it grow You can watch it grow, you can watch it grow, you can watch it grow [x2]
