Lyrics

Don't you tell me I can't cry
I hear stories whispered in the night
The story starts with once upon a time
Can you tell me my next line?

The earth began to shake
Four a.m., forced awake
When the music finally sings
I'll start counting it like telephone rings

Pick up, pick up, pick up

I am naked at your feet
Drawn in by your radiant heat
Our home, the one thing that we know
Is built of bricks and colored indigo

I am crawling in my skin
Waiting on forever to begin
I am stuck in one day at a time
Take the call, report the crime

Pick up, pick up, pick up

Leave a message at the tone
I will call you when I find my home
Leave a message at the tone
I will find you when I find my home

The story starts with once upon a time
Can you tell me my next line?
