Regina Spektor - Buildings

He was a husband who drove his wife home
Drunk from the parties
He was a husband who drove his wife home
And in the car he would gently lean her head
On the side door window
And in the bathroom he would hold her hair back
And hope, saying:

They build buildings, oh they build buildings
Oh they build buildings
So tall these days

And in the morning she'd wake up
And crouch recollections all day
But she would always
Always wake up the next morning
And he'd take one look at her
And say baby that's ok
And her conscience would issue
Yet another last warning, saying:

They build buildings, oh they build buildings
Oh they build buildings
So tall these days

And she would ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she would ask for time
And she would beg for time
And she would beg for time
And beg for time and call it a gift
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift

And it was coffee and coffee and coffee
And coffee and coffee and coffee some more
He'd go to work and she'd take a sick day
And rot at the core
And by the time he came back
She'd scrub the bathroom
And make it smell like pine
It would be almost as if nothing had happened
And he'd give her time, saying:

They build buildings, oh they build buildings
Oh they build buildings
Oh don't they build buildings, oh they build buildings
They build buildings so tall these days

And she would ask for time
And she'd ask for time
And she would ask for time
And she would beg for time
And she would beg for time
And beg for time and call it a gift
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
And he would give her time
And he'd give her time
But time is not given and time is not taken
It just sifts through its sift

He was a husband drove time home, pine scrub
Bathroom window
Don't they build buildings so tall these days
