  • 05:17 Lyrics Matchbox

    little matchbox car in a tiny hand
    it’ll be all right she whispers to him
    but the lie is sensed by reflecting white eyes
    still drunk with sleep... and...
    on a blacktop road in a sea of sand
    he sees her lips move and takes her hand
    she keeps repeating 3 little words
    it’ll be all right
    you might see it fall away
    he drives alone with no Northern star
    the edges of sleep pull his matchbox car
    delirious heat tempers the sound
    of a scream never ending
    you might feel it burn away
    you can turn and walk away
    but you’ll be back again one day
    because a heart’s like a wheel
    a heart’s like a wheel
    running on running through
    what was old now is new
    turning back, going on
    what’s not here can’t be gone
    can you live with what you’ve done
    or will you hide behind a veil of secrets...
    you might see it fall away
    you can’t turn and walk away
    because tomorrow is today
    my heart’s like a wheel
    turning inside
    spinning my head
    into a ragged silk lie
    I can’t close my eyes
    but i can’t stay awake
    and there’s so many circles
    I keep losing my way
    and the whisper that chills me
    is burning my eyes
    cause it echoes familiar
    3 little words that cut up my life
    it’ll be all right
    you must believe
    it’ll be all right
    just get back on the wheel...
