Lyrics

Don't Run with Scissors

I say, "I’m scared of falling"
You say, "But you can fly"
What if my bones are heavy?
What if your bones are light?
What if the sun burns out and
I can’t find the day?
I’ll drop a path of stars
To lead you on your way

Don’t run with scissors
Don’t play with fire
Don’t burn your bridges
Don’t climb up on the sky
Don’t run with scissors

What if my wings are torn?
What if they’re smooth and strong?
What if people can’t hear me?
Then teach the birds your songs
And if the sun is blinding
And I fly into the pane?
I’ll find the shards of glass
And take them out again

Don’t run with scissors
Don’t play with fire
Don’t burn your bridges
Don’t climb up on the sky
Don’t run with scissors

What if I lose my way?
You know the path by heart
And if the landmarks change?
You’ve flown it in the dark
And if my body’s weary
And I fly off like a kite?
I‘ll fly beside you darling
Wings touching in the night

And run with scissors
Learn to use fire
Yeah burn your bridges
