Newton Faulkner Brick By Brick Lyrics

Last updated: 07/21/2012 11:00:00 AM

I'm hoping it'll all get better
But it keeps on getting worse
Time and time again
People running as the earth shakes
Just another earthquake coming in
To break my faith in this

Wind blowing off the rooftops
Water in the basements
Looking like lightning strikes again
Story ends and another begins
And they will keep on coming
They will keep on coming

Every single flame burns bright and fades
But that's okay

My best-laid plans are washed away
No time to make 'em all again
Sometimes life gets in the way
We've got to keep on breathing

Look how far we've come
Look what we've made
Started from nothing, building

[x2:]
Brick by, brick by
Brick by, brick by
Brick by, brick by
Brick

So we're back to broken hearted
Back to where we started
Everything we built gone down again
If this was in the movies
It's said to be the truth
Bet no one would believe a word of it

Far reaching on the hillsides
Losing by a landslide
Everybody's patience wearing thin
The drama ends and another begins
But if everybody loses, everybody wins

Every single flame burns bright and fades
But that's okay

My best-laid plans are washed away
No time to make 'em all again
Sometimes life gets in the way
We've got to keep on breathing

Look how far we've come
Look what we've made
Started from nothing, building

[x2:]
Brick by, brick by
Brick by, brick by
Brick by, brick by
Brick

All we have is us
To build back up
What we have lost
But that's enough

Every single flame burns bright and fades
But that's okay

My best-laid plans are washed away
No time to make 'em all again
Sometimes life gets in the way
We've got to keep on breathing

Look how far we've come
Look what we've made
Started from nothing, building

[x2:]
My best-laid plans are washed away (Brick by [x5])
No time to make 'em all again (Brick by brick)
Sometimes life gets in the way (Brick by [x5])
We've got to keep on breathing (Brick by brick)
