16th of June, 9:05, doorbell rings
Man at the door says if I want to stay alive a bit longer,
There’s three things I need you to know. Three.
Comin’ from a long line of travelin’ salespeople on my mother’s side,
I wasn’t gonna buy just anyone’s cockatoo
So why would I invite a complete stranger into my home…would you?

These days are better than that
These days are better than that

Every day I die again, and again I’m reborn
Every day I have to find the courage to walk out…into the street
With arms out…
Got a love you can’t defeat
I’m neither down nor out
There’s nothing you have that I need…
I can breathe

16th of June, Chinese stocks are goin’ up
And I’m comin’ down with some new Asian virus
Juju man, juju man, doc says you’re fine, or dying…please
9:09, St. John Divine, on the line, my pulse is fine
When I’m runnin’ down the road like loose electricity
While the band in my head plays a striptease

The roar that lies on the other side of silence
The forest fire that is fear so deny it
Walk out into the street
Sing your heart out
The people we meet
Will not be drowned out
There’s nothing you have that I need…
I can breathe

We are people borne of sound
The songs are in our eyes
Gonna wear them like a crown
Walk out, into the sunburst street
Sing your heart out, sing my heart out
I found grace inside a sound
I found grace, it’s all I found
I can breathe
