lyrics

Some days, things fall in place
Leaving us room to breathe
But these days require a faith
In things I no longer believe

Should you feel lost and forgotten
In search of something new
Think of the poem I hold in my hand
One thing that I know to be true

In spite of our knowledge and all of our shame
There’s one simple fact that stays hard to explain
We owe all our pleasure and all of our pain
To a layer of topsoil and the fact it rains

One day we’ll be erased
No one will know we lived
But today I cherish your face
And everything you have to give

Should you feel torn and uncertain
Like meaning is a lie
Think of the evening, the stars in the sky
The sun when you open your eyes

In spite of our glamor and all of our fame
There’s one simple fact that stays hard to explain
We owe all our pleasure and all of our pain
To a layer of topsoil and the fact it rains

Should you feel lost in the fray
Then may this song guide your way

For all of our wonder and all of our fame
For all we’ve preserved and for all that we’ve changed
We owe every verse and every refrain
To a layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains
To a layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains
Just one layer of topsoil and the fact it rains
