lyrics

How Wonderful You Are

I take small steps. I am careful.
There are Eggshells. Underneath us.
Will we make it? you do not make a sound

You’re a clay pot, you are decorated,
beautiful, and ornate.
I will hold you, I hope you will not break.

I see shadows. I move slowly.
There is someone else. between us.
Did you see her? You do not make a sound.

You’re a statue that I carved of you,
around the time we first met
So I never will forget…

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
I don’t wanna let you go
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you

I keep walking through our history.
There is so much here beneath us.
Do you feel it? You do not make a sound.

I remember conversations we had,
word for word they come back
If I told you d’you think that you’d react

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
I don’t wanna let you go
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you

I keep moving. I am running.
There’s a forest floor beneath us.
Can you hear it? Cracking/breaking with each step

Now your statue’s looming down on me
Blocks the light, I lose my feet,
and something drags me underneath.

Everything you’ve ever given me
Feels like I stole it now, stole it now
Everything you’ve ever done for me
I don’t deserve it now. I don’t deserve it now.

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
So I’ll never let you know
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you
