lyrics

Verse 1:
I have come undone
I have come undone
In your arms
Will the pieces fit back together?

I am on the run
I am on the run
From the alarms
Do you have the tools to make it better?

Prechorus 1:
Have you ever been afraid to look inside
To see the suffering occur?
And have you ever seen machines about to die?
Do you think that we don't hurt?

Chorus 1:
This clockwork heart of mine
Tics and tocs in perfect time
Ringing bells and ringing chimes
To sing my love for you
This clockwork heart of mine
Signals the rhythm within the rhyme
Stop pretending and asking why
When all you have to do

Is listen to the beat
(to the beat)
Listen to the beat

Verse 2:
I can feel no pain
I can feel no pain
When you say
It’s impossible for us to discover

I am lost again
I am lost again
In the maze
As you exit in the arms of another

Prechorus 2:
Is it possible I have a bad connection
Another circuit board has fried
Or is it possible that I misread intentions
I didn't mean to make you cry

Chorus 2:
This clockwork heart of mine
Tics and tocs in perfect time
Ringing bells and ringing chimes
To sing my love for you
This clockwork heart of mine
Signals the rhythm within the rhyme
Stop pretending and asking why
When all you have to do

Is listen to the beat
(to the beat)
Listen to the beat

Bridge:
Don't be afraid
It will hurt
But heal in time
Don't be ashamed
Of a love
That's hard to hide

Prechorus 3:
Well have you ever bore your soul unto another
And have you ever let them see
The inner workings of a beautiful disaster
And were you happy when they scream

Chorus 3:
This clockwork heart of mine
Tics and tocs in perfect time
Ringing bells and ringing chimes
To sing my love for you
This clockwork heart of mine
Signals the rhythm within the rhyme
Stop pretending and asking why
When all you have to do

Is listen to the beat
(to the beat)
Listen to the beat
