11. Dismantle. Repair.

Cities
by Anberlin



 

One last glance from a taxi cab
Images scar my mind
Four weeksíve felt like years
Since your full attention was all mine
The night was young and so were we
Talked about life, God, death, and your family
Didnít want any promises,
Just my undivided honesty, and you said

Oh oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh oh, things are gonna change, oh, theyíre gonna change

I am the patron saint of lost causes
A fraction of who I once believed (change)
only a matter of time
Opinions I would try and rewrite
If life had background music playing your song
Iíve got to be honest, I tried to escape you
But the orchestra plays on, and they sang

Oh oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh oh, things are gonna change

Hands, like secrets, are the hardest thing to keep from you
Lines and phrases, like knives, your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down (repair)
You dismantle me
You dismantle me

Give me time to prove
Prove I want the rest of yours (prelude)
Call this a prelude to a lifetime of you
Itís not that I hang on every word
I hang myself on what you repeat
Itís not that I keep hanging on
Iím never letting go

Hands, like secrets, are the hardest thing to keep from you
Lines and phrases, like knives, your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down (repair)
You dismantle me
You dismantle me

Save me from myself
Help me save me from myself
Save me from myself

Oh oh, things are gonna change now for the better
Oh oh, things are gonna change

Hands, like secrets, are the hardest thing to keep from you
Lines and phrases, like knives, your words can cut me through
Dismantle me down (repair)
You dismantle me
You dismantle me

(Christian/Milligan/Arnold)

Behind the Song:
'This song is written for those who, like me, are greatly affected by others words. When every word spoken is taken to heart, registered, dissected analyzed, and applied to the core of who we really are.

At the end of the day it is not others judgements of us that make us who we will end up to be. It is faith, hope, and love alone.' - Stephen Christian
