Words and Music By Adam Watts

This is how a heart breaks
It doesn’t tell you why
It bleeds, then it dies

This is how the dark takes
Every inch your life
Then it laughs while you cry

And you wonder where you are
How you were killed but didn’t die

Where are you now
Motherfather… Motherfather

Where were you then
Motherfather… Motherfather

And I watch for the signs
The promise you’d appear
I feel you inside
As I fight through the tears
Where are you now

This is how the past shakes
And the earth opens wide
And pulls you inside

Then no matter how brave you are
The heat starts to rise
And reopens the scars

Knocked to the ground the baby cries
Kicking holes in the sky
