Oh, you built a man made out of bricks
and lived inside his chest.
I beat my head against the wall
to make a heart beat in his breast.

Oh, I smashed my fist against his ribs
to suck the air inside.
And swing by swing and blow by blow
I brought that man to life.

I built a man and cut his skin
and lived inside his heart.
I pumped it with my fingertips
and loved it from the start.

And with every beat I gave it,
a heartbeat of my own.
And filled his veins with the blood i had
till his blood
till his blood
till his blood
was my own.

I would build you up
but were not made of the same stuff.
and even though I knocked you down
your so much stronger than me.

I would build you up
but were not made of the same stuff.
and even though I knocked you down
your so much stronger than me.
