The Lowest Pair – Shot Down the Sky Lyrics

Shot Down the Sky By The Lowest Pair

I shot up, I brought down the sky
it didn’t bleed
neither did I
Come let us run to where the sunset lies
while the wind’s in our hair and the stars in our eyes
I told my love what I’d done
they said might as well
do what you want cause you’re headed for hell
there ain’t no where left for those wild birds to fly
you’ve gone and shot up and brought down the sky

No one can hold up, can hold up the sky
I know it gets better when I let go
I shot it down to hold still the time
but I know it gets better when I let go
when I let go

Did you hear it fall? God’s tambourine?
calling out some rhythm that could mean anything
causing us both to hold that last backwards glance
at the sounding of percussion’s circumstance

No one can hold up, can hold up the sky
I know it gets better when I let go
I shot it down to hold still the time
but I know it gets better
when I let go when I let go

Cleared a trail through the wreckage of blue on the ground
the landing the lightning and moonbeams we had found
are we near to the wreckage?
we’ll bury them there
with stars in our eyes and the wind in our hair

No one can hold up, can hold up the sky
I know it gets better when I let go
I shot it down to hold still the time
but I know it gets better when I let go
when I let go
