Kings of Convenience - Failure Lyrics

Using the Guardian as a shield,
To cover my thighs against the rain,
I do not mind about my hair.
Your jacket may be waterproof,
But I know the moment you get home
You're gonna get your trousers changed.
Failure is always the best way to learn,
Retracing your steps until you know,
Have no fear your wounds will heal.
I wish I could travel overground

To where all you hear is water sounds,
Lush as the wind upon a tree.
I wish I could travel overground
To where all you hear is water sounds,
To capture and keep inside of me.
Failure is always the best way to lean,
Retracing your steps until you know,
Have no fear your wounds will heal.
