Heartsounds - Return Lyrics




If he comes back I know just what he'll say:
"Let's show this day a proper night and celebrate!"
Long gone the weeks of white lines and punctured veins.
The day all generations cried,

"So sign 'em up! Sign 'em up! Sign 'em up!
Boy, we're gonna make a man outta you."
"Let's line 'em up! Line 'em up! Line 'em up!
Man, now we're gonna make a ghost of you."

He came back, but he wasn't the same.
Sleep showed him nights lit like the day, and life for the take.
And I caught him in the morning pulling sandbags from the drain
While his imagination shouted,

"So sign 'em up! Sign 'em up! Sign 'em up!
Boy, we're gonna make a man outta you."
"Let's line 'em up! Line 'em up! Line 'em up!
Man, now we're gonna make a ghost of you."

Remember when we played
Wounded soldiers? Broken glass
And half empty bottles dying fast.
And we stayed awake till it was yesterday (and long past)
Wounded soldiers? Broken glass
And half empty bottles dying fast.

But he never really escaped
Wounded soldiers, broken glass
And half empty bottles dying fast.
Awake till it was yesterday and long past.

    If he comes back I know just what he'll say: "Let's show this day a proper night and
    celebrate!" Long gone the weeks of white lines and punctured veins. The day all generations
    cried, "Sign em up! Sign em up! Sign em up! Boy, we're gonna make a man outta you."
    "Line me up! Line em up! Line em up! Man, now we're gonna make a ghost of you." He came
    back, but he wasn't the same. Sleep showed him nights lit like the day, and life for the take.
    I caught him in the morning pulling sandbags from the drain while his imagination
    shouted, "Sign em up! Sign em up! Sign em up! Boy, we're gonna make a man outta you."
    "Line em up! Line em up! Line em up! Man, now we're gonna make a ghost of you." Remember
    when we played Wounded Soldiers? Broken glass and half empty bottles dying fast.
    We stayed awake till it was yesterday and long past. But he never really escaped wounded
    soldiers, broken glass, and half empty bottles dying fast.
