lyrics

You said your heart was like this stone sheered from a ledge, "Nice and sharp, and so delicate."
Then you did begin to cut into our fingers.
"Now we will be brothers, you and me. We always will be brothers."
I held it up into the light to see the edge glowing white and dripping crimson red. Reflecting in the water, in shone like a diamond. And I threw it in the river. That's what I want is to throw it in the river.

I threw your heart like a stone into the water.
I thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife.
We watched it sail through the night like a moon
And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared.

I watched your eyes well up with fear at the sound of the reflection lapping all around. "Don't be afraid, we'll go and find another. There'll always be another. That's what they say is there'll always be another.
You ran your hand across the stone, it felt so smooth, not too sharp and then you did remove a piece that was so perfect it shone like a diamond. Then you threw it in the river. I don't know why, but you threw it in the river.

You threw your heart like a stone into the water.
You thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife.
We watched it sail through the night like a moon
And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared.
