A Billion Heartbeats Lyrics

Why does it take a tragedy to make
Our true colors come out?
We only feel the life in our limbs
And a heartbeat beneath the skin
When time is running out

But there's love in pain
And comfort in
Suffering, feels familiar
Just like a stranger's touch
We've yet to trust
Reaching out to feel
Something real before
We turn to dust

Every human has a billion heartbeats
So why do we lie and cheat till we're old
And time is up on Earth?
Every human has a billion heartbeats
So why do we only speak
In the cold silence between our words?

Trapped halfway between wanting to be brave
And feeling scared we'll only stand and stare
What difference will it make picking up the pieces
As another lonely heart breaks but don't despair?

'Cause there's love in pain
And comfort in
Suffering, feels familiar
And soft like a stranger's touch
We've yet to trust
Reaching out to feel
Something real before
We turn to dust

Every human has a billion heartbeats
So why do we lie and cheat till we're told
Time is up on Earth?
Every human has but a billion heartbeats
So why do we only speak, we only speak
In the cold silence between our words? (In the cold silence between our words?)
(In the cold silence between our words?)
(In the cold silence between our words?)
(In the cold silence between our words?)

So how do I, do I sleep, do I lie?
Lie and cheat though I try
I can't speak
Still my heart, my heart beats
How do I, do I sleep, do I lie?
Lie and cheat though I try
I can't speak
Still my heart, my heart beats

How do I, do I sleep, do I lie?
Lie and cheat though I try
I can't speak
Still my heart, my heart beats
How do I, do I sleep, do I lie?
Lie and cheat though I try
I can't speak, yeah, I try
But I can't speak, I can't speak

Every human has a billion heartbeats
So why do we lie and cheat till we're old
And time is up on Earth?
Every human has but a billion heartbeats (heartbeats)
So why do we only speak, we only speak
In the cold silence between our words?

In the cold silence between our words?
In the cold silence between our words?
In the cold silence between our words?
In the cold silence between our words?
In the cold silence between our words?
In the cold silence between our words?
