Death Cab for Cutie

You Are A Tourist

Hook

<This fire grows higher>
<This fire grows higher>
<This fire grows higher>
<This fire grows higher>

Verse 1

When there's a burning in your heart
An endless yearning in your heart
Build it bigger than the sun
Let it grow, let it grow
When there's a burning in your heart
Don't be alarmed

Hook

<[This fire grows higher]> »

Verse 2

When there's a doubt within your mind
'Cause you're thinking all the time
Framing rights into wrongs
Move along, move along
When there's a doubt within your mind

Verse 3

When there's a burning in your heart
And you think it'll burst apart
Oh, there's nothing to fear
Save the tears, save the tears
When there's a burning in your heart

Bridge

And if you feel just like a tourist
In the city you were born, then it's time to go
And define your destination
There's so many different places to call home
Because when you find yourself the villain
In the story you have written, it's plain to see
That sometimes the best intentions
Are in need of redemptions, would you agree?
If so please show me

Hook

<This fire grows higher>
<This fire grows higher>

Outro

When there's a burning in your heart

When there's a burning in your heart
<[This fire grows higher]> »
When there's a burning in your heart
« <[This fire grows higher]>
<[This fire grows higher]> »
When there's a burning in your heart
« <[This fire grows higher]>
<[This fire grows higher]> »
When there's a burning in your heart
