lyrics

Branch

What’s the use in falling?
You’re gonna have to get back up again
What’s the use in trying?
You’re gonna build something that you have to keep up and then
Like a branch you’re hanging, are you the end or a beginning
You might be breaking, but right now it feels alright to sing

La de da da, you’re hanging on like a branch

What’s the use in falling
Into love, or out of love tonight
What’s the use in trying
You chase and catch and lose again, is spite
Always waiting, in the stranger’s hand
The branches of your choices
We are never leading, we’re always led,
By some fragile voice

La de da da, you’re hanging on like a branch
La de da da, you’re hanging on like a branch

You’re just singing in the wind, and the wind catches your voice
It may not be listening, but you’ve got to sing, you’ve got no other choice

Every moment
You are leaving and you are being left
Every moment
Time to fall in love again

La de da da, you’re hanging on like a branch
