lyrics

This story is the best I've ever read
Gives me the best kind of goosebumps, playing over and over and over in my head
The queen she traveled widely, the king grew roots into the ground
Their meeting was surprising but no truer love was their to be found

It's a world of trails, which one to follow
Beside each other where the wind blows

This heart is elastic, it makes music stretched so tight between our worlds
Pluck gently these heartstrings they will tremble
Your fingers make them tremble
My lungs fill fully, taste your body in the space around my dreams
No pause in breathing, I'm never really leaving
I'm never really leaving

Your body leaves a shadow on my bed
A space I cannot recreate, I sigh
The miles between us daunt me, they haunt me
Finding how to replace that grey empty space of your imprint on the pillow

It's a world of trails which one to follow
Beside each other where the wind blows

This heart is elastic, it makes music stretched so tight between our worlds
Pluck gently these heartstrings they will tremble
Your fingers make them tremble
My lungs fill fully, taste your body in the space around my dreams
No pause in breathing, I'm never really leaving
I'm never really leaving

Love becomes an endless word
Love becomes the only word

This heart is elastic, it makes music stretched so tight between our worlds
Pluck gently these heartstrings they will tremble
Your fingers make them tremble
My lungs fill fully, taste your body in the space around my dreams
No pause in breathing, I'm never really leaving
I'm never really leaving
