Gathering Stories Lyrics


Jónsi - Gathering Stories Lyrics


And then I heard you
You made me long for
To be a part of
Something that I can’t see
A life that is beyond
Something that I can’t fear
To be a part of
The story - it belongs to you
Something you said was
About the pen and the paper
You can always write it
It is something you'll have to do
Gathering stories
The story - it belongs to you
They say that it's gone now
You know that I disagree

I barely hear you
The signal is cold now
So turn it into video
Tune the radio

(Sing along)
To all our favorite songs

The signal is growing
Out in little pieces
And watch in a moment
Secure it for falling

Over the stars
Over the nights
Over the rains
Over the moons
Over the days
Over the streams
Over the skies
Over the ponds
Over the fires
Over the lakes
Over the trees
Over the mind
Our kid zigs
Opens doors
Over the doors
I am alive
