Lyrics
Everything I said before I solemnly disown
I am a product of the past, but the here and now I own
If it makes you feel better, you can say that was me
But I don't see the seedling when I'm looking at the tree
When I was a boy I let my ignorance thrive
I remained a boy till I turned twenty-five
I thought I was a genius, and heaven knows I tried
But I've only one idea now and that's a source of pride

You are the thought that stretches
From sleep to wake
You leave me falling down
Like London Bridge in an earthquake

I was thinking of the story of the house built on the sand
How for the sake of the lesson the ruin of the man
I imagine how it once stood, beautiful, tall
But the master's the daredevil and the puppet takes the fall
Then I saw you at your front door and everything was clear
I'd been looking at it sideways and getting nowhere near
What if I'm not a genius, that used to be my fear
But I've only one idea now and that's a source of cheer

You are the thought that stretches
From sleep to wake
You leave me falling down
Like London Bridge in an earthquake

If I ever love another I'm a liar
If I ever touch another I'm a thief
If I ever see another I am sorry
If I ever know another then I don't know me

You are the thought that stretches
From sleep to wake
You leave me falling down
Like London Bridge in an earthquake
