Love Story (Four Verses On The Divine Unity Of All Things)

This song is by Tyler Lyle and appears on the album Inland Islands / Bad Things (& Collard Greens) (2010).

The other night
I had a dream
That the world was on
A moving screen
And some folks were laughing
But some were crying
And some folks were dancing
But some were dying
They all were searching
For the keys to their apartments
Or the keys to existence
Or the key to a heart
But all of the keys, you see, they got
Locked in the garden
Before the film even started
But the band couldn't help but play
She looks beautiful today

And I'm all out of answers
But you should definitely dance with her
'Cause this breath's as deep as you make it
And there's a chance if you take it

The neighbors had
A swimming pool
And their five-year old
She broke the rules
And she treaded water
For half an hour
It was too late
By the time they found her
So blame the parents
Blame the lock on the fence
The missing keys to existence
Pound the ground with your fist and pray
Would you take it all away

If this cough turns fatal
If you force my cards out on the table
I'll say "morning comes when you need it
Even blind eyes can see it"

Fingers fumble in the dark
How do you make a beating heart
Out of nothing with no instruction
What moves his hand, if not for love
And then you stand, blown away
That someone else can meet your gaze
Well what for, what possibility
I hope she has blue eyes just like me

Did you hear we're keeping the baby
This life is such a funny thing
That there is something and not nothing
Oh, what a bed to make love in

A love story
A boy and a girl
We both fought with our hearts
Fought with our maker
A love story
From Eden to Glory
That stretches as deep
As it stretches wide
And all of it matters
The centerpiece was shattered
And could not be fixed
So it was made perfect
And all of it matters
The kingdom was scattered
Into the blood
And on every face we see

For every blue-eyed daughter
For every child pulled from the water
I see the love of the same hand
More than I can know or understand

So I'm all out of answers
But you should definitely dance with her
'Cause this breath's as deep as you make it
And there's a chance if you take it
