Maximo Park – Distance Makes lyrics

Distance makes the heart dissolve
Like little pills cloud water
Dissolving inch by inch
Separating a fraction further

You helped to shape this space
We'd gaze at dancers
The view it fluctuates

Flattened bodies blown on the floor
Within a rectangle of cool green lines
We watched them in the wall
We breath beside each other

The stars, our landmarks
And we don't use them
The stars, our landmarks
You can't swing from them

I wish this was an endurance test
But there are no limits
I sent a letter to my own address
While you lived in it

You used to drink from that glass
Decorated in Scandinavia
You nearly ironed me out
And now I've changed my behavior

This morning I saw a blue metal star
I was on tiptoes high above the back yard
Competing with the real thing
It ends up dominating

The stars, our landmarks
And we don't use them
The stars, our landmarks
You can't swing from them

Everyone's got their own idea
Of Utopia and why we're here

The stars, our landmarks
And we don't use them
The stars, our landmarks
You can't swing from them
The stars, our landmarks
They have no function
