Before The Bombs

from by Death Cab for Cutie

lyrics

Before the bombs, before the walls came down
We would lie in the summer sun
Watching the clouds pass one by one
Before the fires, before the spools of barbed wire
You said you would never forget
What pierces deeper than the bayonet

There’s only one thing that will save this place
The only thing that that they cannot face
There’s only one thing that they cannot take

Love

Before the mobs, before the inside jobs
Sleeping in on borrowed time
Too distracted for the minor crimes
Before the war, before the troops came ashore
I held you deep in my arms
A fool to think that they could save you from harm

There’s only one thing that will save this place
The only thing that that they cannot face
There’s only one thing that they cannot take

Love
