Beautiful things

Balloon come down, one less color in the sky
simple twisted string, no-one needs to ask why
She doesnít look at him, heís watching the TV
inside theyíre 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

Chorus: And thereís too many beautiful things
falling down
Yes, thereís too many beautiful things
falling down

Now we are young, now itís time for tears
now we count the change as weíre reeling in the years
Boat go down one less color on the sea
things can spring a leak, itís as easy as can be
and the birds steal the words that we forget are there
yes the words can disappear when nobody takes care

Chorus: and thereís too many beautiful things
falling down
yes thereís too many beautiful things
falling down

Itís hard to live with love, itís harder if you donít
with a smile for them that can and a sigh for them that wonít
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 they care

And thereís too many beautiful things
falling down
Yes thereís too many beautiful things
falling down
