Ooh
Ooh

There's a hole in my pocket where my dreams fell through
From the sidewalk in the city to the avenue
There's a leak in my dam about the size of a pin
And I can't quite remember where the water's getting in

When you're wearing on your sleeve all the things you regret
You can only remember what you want to forget
You'll feel it tugging at your heart like the stars overhead
Till you rest your bones on the killing bed

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you

With the weight of the world resting on my back
And the road in which I've traveled is as long as it is cracked
I keep pressing forward with my feet to the ground
For a heart that is broken makes a beautiful sound

When you're wearing on your sleeve all the things you regret
You can only remember what you want to forget

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you, oh
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you, oh

Ooh
Ooh

I walk through my days like a ghost in a dream
But the feel carries on and my past follows me
It's hard moving on from the things you've done wrong
When they play in your head like and old fashioned song

When you're wearing on your sleeve all the things you regret
You can only remember what you want to forget

Lonely miles without you
Lonely miles without you

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me when I doubt you

Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me
Let them roll over me

Let the ground keep my bones
Let the water be my home
Let the dust hold my soul
Like a holy rolling stone
