It Never Seems to Last - The Static Age

In a moment buildings rise up
as they start to fall
it's in these seconds
that she swears you can't hear much at all

it never seems to last

in this warm wet rain
i come around again
and with this sense of rapture
i would only lose my head

it never seems to last

so put on sunday shoes
dance the breakdown
so put on sunday shoes
come on dance the breakdown

and here we find ourselves in motion
on and off again
so lose the dead weight darling
it's everything you've never been

it never seems to last

if i could get this close to open hands
like open flames
then i might find myself in
different faces, different names

it never seems to last

so put on sunday shoes
dance the breakdown
so put on sunday shoes
come on dance the breakdown

madeline
in pictures by the sea
it's always there
it's always wrong
laugh
but it'll get you
wait and see
