I just cannot compare to you…so beautiful
I Just can’t do the things you do…so wonderful
And I will shake, ‘cause the sky’s gonna fall
When I come to my senses and realise that everything I’m doing is a waste
of the breath in my lungs, of the songs I have sung
of the voice I have been given just to speak my own truth
I need a change of policy…so personal
I need a set of new beliefs…I’ve been too comfortable
And I will break down the words in my head
I’m allowed to be sad; but I’m not allowed to be so cruel to the only one
who was here from the start, who will always remain
I have pushed her away now I have got to win her back
The roof of this great house is surely falling down…
Can you feel the earth quake with the knowledge to come?
I can feel in my bones, it will tear me apart and reconfigure me and then
if I look in your eyes, and I don’t see the truth, or a person like me
Then I have got to start again
Can you feel it, feel the earth…
can you feel the earth, feel the earth?
Can you feel the earth, feel the earth shake?
