That Wrecking Ball Lyrics

Mandolin Orange – That Wrecking Ball Lyrics

from album: Such Jubilee (2015)
I've taken to leaning these past few days
A little too heavy on my walking cane
Cause I'm afraid she's swinging my way
That wrecking ball

[Verse 1]
Now with all my ducks in a row
With one pull I could let them go
Not to lose, just to show
I could catch them all
But every man bears a burden
His own beast by the horns
That he hides from the world
When he's young and strong
Looking over his shoulders
Half tattered and torn
Still standing tall

[Chorus 2]
But every year rolls on like a runaway train
Every beast grows stronger as the pendulum swings
To and fro, and on she goes
That wrecking ball

[Verse 2]
I've just seen that rock of ages
I've just held my savior's hand
We danced on the water
With my head on her shoulders
She swore to never let me fall

[Chorus 3]
And wouldn't time seem so kindly
If every bright eyed girl could be more like you
And shelter me me
From that wrecking ball
That wrecking ball
