The Only Thing Songtext
von Sufjan Stevens

The Only Thing Songtext

The only thing that keeps me from driving this car
Half-light, jack knife into the canyon at night
Signs and wonders, Perseus aligned with the skull
Slain Medusa, Pegasus alight from us all

Do I care if I survive this?
Bury the dead where they're found
In a veil of great surprises
I wonder, did you love me at all?

The only thing that keeps me from cutting my arm
Cross hatch, warm bath, Holiday Inn after dark
Signs and wonders, water stain writing the wall
Daniel's message, blood of the moon on us all

Do I care if I despise this?
Nothing else matters, I know
In a veil of great disguises
How do I live with your ghost?


Should I tear my eyes out now?
Everything I see returns to you, somehow
Should I tear my heart out now?
Everything I feel returns to you, somehow
I wanna save you from your sorrow

The only reason why I continue at all
Faith in reason, I wasted my life playing dumb
Signs and wonders, sea lion caves in the dark
Blind faith, God's grace, nothing else left to impart

Do I care if I survive this?
Bury the dead where they're found
In a veil of great surprises
Hold my head till I drown

Should I tear my eyes out now?
Before I see too much
Should I tear my arms out now?
I want to feel your touch

Should I tear my eyes out now?
Everything I see returns to you, somehow
Should I tear my heart out now?
Everything I feel returns to you, somehow
