Jars Of Clay – Pennsylvania lyrics
Verse 1:
A picture of a child groom on the bedside
The flicker from a half lit chandelier
Souvenirs from hell and Pennsylvania
The vows of London Tower that got us here

Chorus:
Look but don’t touch, hurt but don’t cry
Break out of these cages, but never fly, never fly
How much farther out?
Be careful what you wish for
How much farther out?
Be careful what you wish for

Verse 2:
Gather up the hearts that bleed without you
Take the color from the sky that frames your eyes
Break the walls keeping you inside you
Catch the parachutes that fill the sky

Chorus:
Look but don’t touch, hurt but don’t cry
Break out of these cages, but never fly, never fly
How much farther out?
Be careful what you wish for
How much farther out?
Be careful what you wish for
Look but don’t touch, hurt but don’t cry
Break out of these cages, but never fly, never fly

Verse 3:
Plant another dream down by the lakeside
Leave the rest in boxes for the past
Some would say that we were young in hours
Everyone believed that this would last
