Bek Lyrics

New Round

(From the "The Information" Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

When the oceans are dark
The heavens are foreboding
A chain link wind
Is breaking you open
Lessons of the day
On a blackboard night
Seem to be erased
And the beacon has no light

The eyes of confusion
Looking for a stray
And Everything they need
Keep the dogs at bay
There's no escape hatch
There's no submarine
That can take you to the moon
And rake you in the leaves
And keep you just as safe
As you are in my arms
And someday someday
Say bye-bye

You're smaller than a stone
Bigger than a road
Farther than an ocean
Closer than a soul
Every little word
And every little step
Every new direction
Closer you will get
And farther away
You go from where we are
And try to keep him with you
And hold him like a star
That has fallen frozen lake
To a heart to break
And push yourself beyond
All because of you
When you bring it down
All the false sides
When you make him yours
Don't forget he's yours
