Block By Block

Lyrics

While you’d be building cities
I’d be knocking them down
While you’d stack the little pieces up
I’d dig the big ones out
and I’d get so strung up in rambling
Bout the unfair way things happen in this life
That you’d stare me down like a fix-it man
And plan how to piece me back right

Then block by block
Brick by brick
You’d build me back up
Bit by bit
And pull me out of my head
Show me how beautiful the world is
Open up my eyes again
Block by block
Brick by brick
I fall too fast into
Getting caught up in things but you
Pull me out of my head
Tell me that the world is made of Lego
And that I can build it up again

I can build it up again

While you’d make a Lego house
I’d make it a Lego arcade machine
We’d argue over the colours of the walls
And the crooked chimney
And I’d get so involved in proclaiming
How that crooked chimney should be set straight
That I’d slam my fist down hard enough
That the house would tumble and break

Then block by block
Brick by brick
You’d build me back up
Bit by bit
And pull me out of my head
Show me how beautiful the world is
Open up my eyes again
Block by block
Brick by brick
I fall too fast into
Getting caught up in things but you
Pull me out of my head
Tell me that the world is made of Lego
And that I can build it up again

I can build it up again
I can build it up again
I can build it up again
I can build it up again
