Stillwater - Hands Like Houses

Piling stones to guide the sea,
To say we stopped the tide, but we
We never did (did we)
We never did (did we)

We build as only children know to build
We made a way where there's a will
No slowing down or standing still
Innocent and reckless

How did we get so old and never notice
How did we gain the world and lose the moment
Rise and fall, the tide surrounds us
And drowns us all

Finding cracks in our intent
We can't stop the water from rushing in
We can't stop the walls collapsing in
The rocks give to rain and to ruin again

We build as only children know to build
We made a way where there's a will
Innocent and reckless

How did we get so old and never notice
How did we gain the world and lose the moment
Rise and fall, the tide surrounds us
And drowns us all

Watching the years, all washed away
Scattered stones all that remains
A kingdom swallowed by the sea

Innocent and reckless
Innocent and reckless

How did we get so old and never notice
How did we gain the world and lose the moment
Rise and fall, the tide surrounds us
And drowns us all

How did we get so old and never notice
How did we gain the world and lose the moment
Rise and fall, the tide surrounds us
And guides us all
