"How Do You?" (mic'd, new edit!) + LYRICS

# How Do You?

How do you make them listen
With so much noise?
How do you say anything at all
With such a small voice?
How do you keep on keeping on
And singing your elusive song
As it burns in the dark and dies

How do you keep them guessing
When you’re all you’ve got?
Nothing beyond your fire
And your wooden thoughts
How do you know when it’s enough
That you have given all your blood
To a sky that’s burnt bone-dry

Courage, dear heart
This world is just a boat:
Paper-mache and smoke

Why does it have to matter
What they see?
Beauty is like a river,
Strong and free
Why don’t you just go let it flow
And follow wherever it leads,
Sing it out, just let it breathe

Courage, dear heart
Keep your heart afloat
Courage, dear heart
The mighty first walk low
Courage, dear heart
This world is just a boat:
Paper-mache and smoke
