The dust has finally settled down
The sun is shining on these pieces that are scattered all around
This house was everything we knew
It's where we kept our love and
Every single memory of me and you
Every letter, every note, every dress you never wore under your coat
Thrown away
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor
If we hold onto each other, we'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
We will get back to yesterday
When I made your body shiver and
When you took my breath away,
You took my breath away.

The sky has made it back to blue,
Everything that's left is telling us the worst of it is through.
Home has never felt so right, there's nothing in the way.
There's nothing in between us
Knowing where we're going is inside.
Every letter that I wrote,
Every dress you never wore under your coat
Thrown away
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor
If we hold on to each other,
We'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
We'll get back to yesterday.
When I made your body shiver
And when you took my breath away.

All the pictures that we've taken
And the songs that we have played
They have all kept track and
Followed back the love that we have made.
Now they're spread out on the
Surface where we can try to congregate
It's not too late to believe that we can get it all again
Brick by brick, we can build it from the floor,
If we hold onto each other,
We'll be better than before.
And brick by brick,
We'll get back to yesterday
When I made your body shiver and
When you took my breath away,
You took my breath away.
Brick by brick
We'll get back to yesterday,
When I made your body shiver and
When you took my breath away,
You took my breath away.
