Metric – Paths in the Sky Lyrics

Metric Paths in the Sky Lyrics

Paths in the sky, paths in the sky
That’s you and me, and we’ll always be
Half hitting highs, half flying blind
Till death divides, that’s you and I

In your ragged coat one boring night
You dragged me out to cure the blues
That seemed to be destroying me
Said tell me all your brutal news
At the back of the bar in the basement

By candlelight I couldn’t hide
Those battles I could once survive
Now seemed to be destroying me
You shook your head, laughed when I said
“What a waste of an education”

Time flying on a path
Moving through the sky
I don’t ever want to land
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
There’s no way to stop the time
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
Play along and make it last
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky

So without you now, where would I be?
So many trials and fantasies
When I was broke you covered me
Our actions speak in a heavenly
Substitute for a conversation

Time flying on a path
Moving through the sky
I don’t ever want to land
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
There’s no way to stop the time
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
But we’re doing what we can
Flying on a path
Know we’re flying blind

Paths in the sky, paths in the sky
Till death divides, that’s you and I
Till the stars mutate
Till a meteor hits your apartment
Sparks radiate your veins
Wearing sequined gloves
I saw the vase in the space, two faces
Took me a lifetime of contemplation

Time flying on a path
Moving through the sky
I wish I could stop the time
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
Tried to sneak out through the back
Flying on a path
Moving through the sky
Play along and make it last
Flying on a path
Know we’re flying blind
There’s no way to stop the time
Flying on a path
Know we’re flying blind
