Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - Love And Great Buildings Lyrics




My heart is an apartment building on the verge
A testament to days more optimistic
The market shifts can cause storm systems to converge
'Til all your high rise dreams seem unrealistic
I want to keep the lights on
I could raise the rents and resurface the pool
I could take the banks on
Repay all my debts
Get my ass back to school

Love and great buildings will survive
Strong hearts and concrete stay alive
Through the great depressions
Yeah, the best things are designed to stand the test of time

Brick and plaster, beams and broken windows
Shadows pass on sidewalks cracking to the curb
I want the lights on
Repair the foundation
Maybe hire a crew
Plant a little garden
Start the renovation
Get my ass back to you

Love and great buildings will survive
Strong hearts and concrete stay alive
Through the great depressions
Yeah, the best things are designed to stand the test of time

Love and great buildings will survive
Strong hearts and concrete stay alive
Through the great depressions
Yeah, the best things are designed to stand the test of time
Love and great buildings will endure
Blue skies and bloodlines are the cure
For the great deceptions in a world that's such a blur
We'll stand the test of time
We'll stand the test of time
We'll stand the test of time
