A small rapping crows at the heart
We got off to an awkward start
I think you want me on your terms
But neither of our hearts do burn

Miles of racetracks in your head
We all got our layers to shed
I know this fact it’s not something I’ve read
You make a decision if you want the bread

I’m looking for something your little body could never give
I need a mountain, I’m no longer a kid

There’s to many choices in the modern world
I’d like to take a home with one girl
Too many blocking boulders to hurl
I open oysters looking for the pearl

I’m looking for something your little body could never hold
I need a mountain as I grow old
It’s nothing big to cry about
Not like you were Helen of Troy
But it’s always the illusion
That hurts me oh when it’s destroyed
