The Joy Formidable The Hurdle Lyrics

I lost a place that I love
It disappeared into the woods where it belong
That cool spot, all that sun patched ridge
That watery pool, where the animals drink

Do you hear that sound
The hurdle crashing down
Do you miss that breeze
That's what our brother believed

It was the land
The land of milk and honey
That you just watched
Being pummeled like putty

Come back to haunt
All things are two
Come back to test
As long as it's new
I'm tired of talk
I'm tired of news
Hear the herd
Herd the herd
Sleep on whatever you do

Do you hear that sound
The hurdle crashing down
Do you miss that breeze
That's where our mother lived
Would you tell her now
The worth of tiny things
The gather round
Untie and end that's sealed

That's sealed
In this vast space it's always sealed
We won't see
All the debris we're certain to leave

Do you hear that sound
Do you hear that sound
Do you hear that sound

Do you hear that sound
The hurdle crashing down
Do you miss that breeze
That's why our mother believed
Believed

Would you tell her now (believed)
Would you tell her now (believed)
What would she say
The works of tiny things
Sell the stars, two by two
Just like sheep with a sail behind you
On and on, on and on, on and on when will it stop
