lyrics

Under hand and over bone
Everywhere you look there’s something left beneath a stone
Poets drown in lakes and southern fish is always fried
Some things we just know inside

The way the sunlight hits your dress
I see the beauty underneath and everybody must confess
We are not as covered up as we would like to be
I see you and you know me

And this too shall pass
After all it’s only love that really lasts
Oh, it'll beat you down
'Til what’s lost is found

A remembered smile, a forgotten taste
A love from long ago you laid so carelessly to waste
An old torn piece of paper with big dreams scribbled down
Notes from the underground

But this too shall pass
After all it’s only love that really lasts
Oh, it'll beat you down
'Til what’s lost is found

The heart floats on
The heart floats on
It ain’t never where it’s supposed to be
It’s off singing in a minor key
It’s off drinking with the enemy
The heart floats on

The heart floats on
The heart floats on
Love’s hellos and goodbyes
And someone’s born when someone dies
You can catch it in your lover’s eyes
The heart floats on

The heart floats on
The heart floats on
It's an echo from Ruby Ridge
It's fallen off the Fremont Bridge
Through all the pain you thought you hid
The heart floats on

The heart floats on
The heart floats on
It don’t care much for roots
It likes a nice old pair of boots
You know I caught it in a leisure suit
The heart floats on
