You close your eyes and think of another time
The summer when the storms came out
In a room with all the windows shut
This is not happening
In a town with all the windows shut
A bomb keeps ticking
A bomb keeps ticking

All the true stories that we keep to ourselves
All the true stories that we keep to ourselves
All the true stories that we keep to ourselves
That we never tell

Haunted by twelve hundred miles
The fading of teenage hopes and smiles
Your heart was open but his mind was shut
So nothing was happening
For twenty years you’ve had your curtains shut
And time keeps ticking
Time keeps ticking

Repeat chorus

Silly girl – it’s time to open your heart
Silly boy – it’s time to love again
Bury the storms in your back yard

Silly girl – it’s time to open your heart
Silly boy – it’s time to love again
Go find the stars in your suitcase
