Atlas

If you’re wondering
Why I don’t love you anymore
The better question babe
Did I ever love you before

The highest mountain can’t
Forever stand against the stream
The rain will cut it down
And wash it out to sea

I heard Atlas grew tired
Of propping up heaven for such a long while
So he let it fall and he walked free
Into the unknown just like me

Just like me

If you’re wondering
How I changed so quickly
The better question babe
Did you ever really know me

The deepest water can’t
Forever stay as the sea
It’ll rise one day
And rain down on you and me

I heard Atlas grew tired
Of propping up heaven for such a long while
So he let it fall and he walked free
Into the unknown just like me

Just like me

And that’s where it went
Everything between you and me
Slowly fades away
And drifts out to sea

If you’re wondering
What does it all really mean
That’s the question babe
If you find out, won’t you tell me

The highest clouds can’t
Forever stay floating free
They’ll come down one day
Falling into the sea

I heard Atlas grew tired
Of propping up heaven for such a long while
So he let it fall and he walked free
Into the unknown just like me

Just like me
