There Must Be More Than Blood Lyrics

  There Must Be More Than Blood Lyrics



There Must Be More Than Blood By Car Seat Headrest


I saw I saw I saw I saw I saw

I saw you, I saw you


On the magazine cover

With your blue-white eyes

Read it from cover to cover

Looking for ya

But these are not my people here

I think you know that

Nervous like a wild dog

Waiting for the attack


I was living in the delta

Wasting most of my time

You know if I could close the blinds right

I could sleep all through the night

But I’ve seen the tides are rising

Where once there was a shore

I can still remember houses

Stripped to the floor


There must be more than blood that holds us together

There must be more than wind that takes us away

There must be more than tears when they pull back the curtain

Of this much I am certain


When you’re down for a while trying to get dried out

You feel the time pass by but you don’t look around

When you’re out for a while trying to get dried out

You feel the time pass by but you don’t look around


You were playing your music but you got drowned out

You go back to the old house but you’ve been locked out

And it wasn’t for love that you went back home

It was the guilt in your throat like you swallowed a bone


They had all of your life to get it right

They had all of that time just to change their minds

And you’re grateful for the bus

It’s a place to sit down


Like a spider in the winter trying not to be found

No use trying to heal when you’re getting stepped on

No use selling your soul when you’re getting passed on

How could they treat you like a forgotten card?


Dear dad, I’m sorry

Thank you very much

What difference does it make when they throw you away?

Is anybody gonna ever hear what you had to say?


I was flying on a redeye

My hand dropped to the aisle

I could see myself clearly for the first time in a while

There was nothing but lines

Nothing but outlines

My gut sank like a stone

But I heard another voice say, “We all walk alone. ”


There must be more than blood that holds us together

There must be more than wind that takes us away

There must be more than tears when they pull back the curtain

There must be more than fear

Oh, there must be more than blood that holds us together

There must be more than wind that takes us away

There must be more than tears when they pull back the curtain

There must be more than fear (there must be more)


There must be more, there must be more, there must be

There must be more, there must be more, there must be

all we work for is to satisfy you.
