Beautiful things

Balloon come down one less colour in the sky
simple twisted string no-one needs to ask why
She doesn’t look at him he’s watching the TV
inside they’re the same thing but neither of them see
how the words cut the lines that we forget are there
yes the words can disappear when nobody takes care

And there’s too many beautiful things
falling down
Yes there’s too many beautiful things
falling down

Now we are young now it’s time for tears
now we count the change as we’re reeling in the years
Boat go down one less colour on the sea
things can spring a leak it’s as easy as can be
And the birds steal the words that we forget are there
yeah the words can disappear when we forget to take care

And there’s too many beautiful things
falling down
Yes there’s too many beautiful things
falling down

It’s hard to live with love it’s harder if you don’t
a smile for them that can and a sigh for them that won’t
Silver bird take off with a girl I want to stay
silver bird come home and take our dreams away
A couple holding hands flying through the air
a couple holding hands just to show us all we care

And there’s too many beautiful things
falling down
Yes there’s too many beautiful things
falling down
