Jonathan Jackson – How You Learn To Live Alone lyrics

First you fall, and then you fly
And you believe that you belong up in the sky
Flap your arms as you run
Every revelation brings you closer to the sun

You fall asleep in motion
And uncharted hemispheres
And you wake up with the stars
Falling down around your ears
And when they hit the ground,
They're nothing but stones
That's how you learn to live alone
That's how you learn to live alone

Bit by bit, you slip away
You lose yourself in pieces in the things you don't say
You're not here, but you're still there
The sun goes up, the sun goes down
But you're not sure that you care

You live inside the false
Until you don't recognize the truth
People send you pictures
And you can't believe it's true
And it's been years since your
House has felt like home
That's how you learn to live alone
That's how you learn to live alone

It don't feel right, but it's not wrong
It's just hard to start again this far along
Brick by brick, you let it go
As you walk away from everything you know

When you release resistance
And you lean into the wind
Until the roof begins to crumble
And the rain comes pouring in
And you sit there in the rubble
Till the rubble feels like home
That's how you learn to live alone
That's how you learn to live alone

That's how you learn to live alone
