lyrics

Bring your broken hearts into my toyshop.

I will make you whole with my tools.

I will hammer on your soft arteries

’til they make way for God’s love. Fools

come from far away, bringing balls of clay

for my hands to hold, mold, enfold.

Come into my shop, my sweet lollipop.

Shield yourself from the April cold.

When you went away, I thought I heard you say

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t take it all the way.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.

Come from solitude to my toyshop door.

Come and say to me one more lie.

Smile, I’m watching you. Watch me watching you.

See the things I do with my eyes.

When you bring me down, I feel all around,

I taste every sound, I want more.

Come in, ecstasy, exit empathy.

Come and knock on my Toyshop door.

When I went away, I turned back to say

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t take me all the way.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.

When we went away, we turned back to say,

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t wipe it all away.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.
