Garth Michael McDermott: Hear Music

Building The Bricks (Building The Bricks)

(Garth Michael McDermott)
We're digging our feet in
We're patching the boards on the back fence
Then hold each other up
Pour another cup
And hope we're strong enough

I was barely breathing
And looking for holes in the whole thing
But diamonds from the dust
Changed the both of us
Like water walked across

Building The Bricks where blood and love run thick
This is the sound when we're both breaking ground
And that's how it goes when all convictions grow
Head in the clouds, but then lead me back down

It's a hell of a backyard to keep all the piles of the old parts
So let the morning come, look at what you've done, and where you started from
