lyrics

In the dying of a broken love, there's a wonder tongue,
And she speaks of the magical places we've been and gone,
As she lifts us out of the dark with the last remaining spark,
Shakes us up and sets us gently down, saying

Wrap your given treasure carefully
Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree
Do the dance of bees 'till you're giddy on your knees,
Breathe the air and never stop believing

The louder you call, the further your words will fly
The brighter they shine, the quicker they'll catch my eye
The softer they fall, the longer our love
Will carry us up to the wings of the doves
But the harder they hit, the deeper the bruises sigh, so

Wrap your given treasure carefully
Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree
Do the dance of bees 'till you're giddy on your knees,
Breathe the air and never stop believing

Haven't you ever pulled the knife from someone's back?
Rescued a desperate damsel from the railway track?
Succoured the stems of wilting flowers?
Held the hands of clocks for hours?
Died and lived and died before you met me?

Wrap your given treasure carefully
Feed it on the bloosom of the Cherry tree
Do the dance of bees 'till you're giddy on your knees,
Breathe the air and never stop believing
Wrap your given treasure carefully
Feed it on the blossom of the Cherry tree
Do the dance of bees 'till you're giddy on your knees,
Breathe the air and never stop believing
Breathe the air and never stop believing
Breathe the air and never stop believing.
