Boy & Bear Lyrics – Break Down Slow

I was on the avenue
Reeling off the energy
Oh but you remain just forever on my brain

Like a walking effigy
The pedestal was left for me
But I was so afraid that it wouldn’t hold my weight

Cos baby I ain’t got time for your show
You see I’m under a change inside like a cancer grows
And now that honey I’m breaking down oh so slow
I got all the time to let you go

You see I built an aviary
To hold in all my memories
I’m still afraid they might just fly away

So won’t you tear my love down from the apple tree
You got fruit in your hands but it ain’t for free
And I’m not sure of anything anymore

Cos baby I ain’t got time for your show
You see I’m under a change inside like a cancer grows
And now that honey I’m breaking down oh so slow
I got all the time to let you go

To let you go

Oh this is what you get for chasing dreams
Oh this is what you get for chasing dreams
Oh this is what you get for chasing dreams

Dreams
Dreams
Dreams
Dreams
