St. Vincent All My Stars Aligned Lyrics

I read the signs
I got all my stars aligned
My amulets, my charms
I set all my false alarms
So I'll be someone
Who won't be forgotten
I've got a question
And you've got the answer

I do a dance to make the rain come
Smile to keep the sky from falling down, down, down, down
Collect the love that I've been given
Build a nest for us to sleep in here
You know it's real

I check my palms
The cracks in teh sidewalk
My visions and my dreams
I cross all my fingers
That you'll be someone
Who won't be forgotten
What was your question
I've got the answer

I do a dance to make the rain come
Smile to keep the sky from falling down, down, down, down
Collect the love that I've been given
Build a nest for us to sleep in here
You know it's real

There are no signs
There are no stars aligned
No amulets no charms
To bring you back to my arms

There's just this human heart
That's built with this human flaw
What was your question
Love is the answer

I do a dance to make the rain come
Smile to keep the sky from falling down, down, down, down
Collect the love that I've been given
Build a nest for us to sleep in here
You know it's real
