Sarah Blasko – Hammer lyrics

There's a hole in the roof
And the dust that's pouring through
Means you want to build the world again from scratch
'Cause nothing moved means nothing found
But there's a sadness in the sound
As the walls crack and the scenes change so fast

If you had a hammer you would knock the whole thing down
But tell me how you'll build again
With what is left of all you've spent

Beware the time in your life
When you feel you have to fight
And you know your words no longer mean enough
There's not a whisper to be found
As you're marching to the sound
Of the wheels turn, and the walls tumble down

If you had a hammer you could knock this whole thing down
But tell me will you build again
When all is lost, and all is spent

Knock things down to start again
So you tear it up to find escape
You'd do anything just to bring this down
Call it a sinking ship
You set the sun

You want a way out
Begging for it
There's no chance and you're scared
You buy your way out
Sell everything
But there's nothing left of all we've built

If you had a hammer you would knock the whole thing down,
But tell me, how you'll build again when all is lost and all is spent
Oh, if you had a dollar you would hide yourself away
But in your silence find some sense that there is no one else to blame

I found you out
You set the sun
Fall in fire
I found you out
You set the sun
There's no way out
I found you out
And inside the sun
I found you out
