All the Little Lights
by Passenger



I got no money in my hand, or my coat, or my pocket
Won’t get to space cuz I haven’t got a rocket
But I have air in my lungs, eyes in my sockets
And a heart that beats, like a tap that leaks
In the night when you haven’t got a plumber who can stop it
Jack in a box without a key to lock it
Well this boat may sink, but I’m not going to rock it, cuz the sea doesn’t know my name
Yeah, the boat may sink, but I’m not going to rock it, cuz the sea doesn’t know my name

Well if you can’t get what you love, you learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want, you learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need, you learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
Oh, the things that stop you dreaming

Well I’ve got no one’s word and nobody’s promise
Not a lot to show but this book full of sonnets
And my liver may be fucked, but my heart is honest
And my word is true like the sky is blue
In the summertime when everybody gets on it
Warm my skin just to get sunburn from it
And our eyes shine bright, like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains
Yeah, our eyes shine bright, like a sky full of comets that shoot like silver trains

Well if you can’t get what you love, you learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want, you learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need, you learn to need the things that stop you dreaming
Ohhh woah, the things that stop you dreaming

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohhh
Oh, ohhh, ohhh, ohh
Ohhh, ohhh, oh, no

Well if you can’t get what you love, you learn to love the things you’ve got
If you can’t be what you want, you learn to be the things you’re not
If you can’t get what you need, you learn to need the things that stop you dreaming

Ohhh wohh, the things that stop you dreaming
Oh the things that stop you dreaming
