Laura Gibson – Empire Builder Lyrics

This is not an escape
But I don't know how to hold somebody without losing my grip
You'll say I was bound to leave
Since I first stepped across your borders
Since I crawled into your skin

Thought I heard you whisper in the dark
That you knew where the light would be
Thought I saw your shape against the black
Thought I felt you moving beside me

We are not alone
and we are more alone
than we've ever been
So hurry up and lose me
Hurry up and find me, again

So I'll pass the lumber mills
I'll pass the coal mines and the parks
And the dried up oil fields
I'll pass a thousand lonely pines that bend the backs against the sun
But I'll mistake the station birds for the sound of my phone ringing

Thought I heard you whisper in the dark
That you knew where the light would be
Don't wait for me to walk a straight line
You can only hold your breath so long

We are not alone
and we are more alone
than we've ever been
So hurry up and lose me
Hurry up and find me, again

But I am no less bound to you
Than when I crossed into your silence
When I held your solitude
But you never liked it
When I'd play dead
And you wondered why my love songs are always the grieving kind
Why I wander off to search for my reflection in the crowd

Oh, forget I said love
And also, don't forget I said love

We are not alone
and we are more alone
than we've ever been
So hurry up and lose me
Hurry up and find me again
