Ivy on Stone

I throw off my sheets
My ears and alarm clock ring to me
I'm sore as a sunburn
Staying up all night making paper doves I could leave with you
Every line I drew
It was all I ever knew of love

Oh that's not so, please listen close, he's not the center of your world.
It's like you're 12 years old, and what if I am? You forget the things you're told
Why ivy clings to stone, and what if it does? You leave for air and lose your home

And I start to wonder
Why the lights all fade away
Hey, stay awake, and don't steal my sun
Or the doves I made will leave you for the daylight

I've rolled up my sleeves
I'm plotting a course through deep green sea
The waves crash and I shake my knees
They won't hold me back, they're not anything
But they're the price I pay, they are all I ever knew of hate

Oh that's not so, please listen close, she's not the center of your world
Why ivy clings to stone, I still don't know why. your course leaves you alone.
sunflowers turn to stare, it's never enough. You look away and lose your home

i will climb this house, and lay in the sun
beneath the clouds, the sooner that I
can climb this house, and lay in the sun
beneath the clouds, the sooner i'll be home

And I start to wonder
Why the lights all fade away
Hey, stay awake, and don't steal my sun
Or the doves I made will leave you for the daylight

the more i know the more i wish i knew you
so i drew you little birds
to sing the words i won't say to you
but they do

Don't steal my sun,
or the doves i made will leave you for the daylight
