Bible VerseEdit

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. NIV Translation

LyricsEdit

We heard the rats in the rafters scurry by
And we wondered about the color of the sky outside
In Warsaw in 1939
It was alright just to be alive
It was good that you were mine
And you held your hands up
To form a heart in the air
You held your hands up with your thumbs touching
They formed a heart in the air 

Through the piece missing in the brick wall
We had an excellent view of the soldiers coming down the hall
And you held your hands up where I could see them 
In the dark and they formed a heart in the air
You held your hands up
And they formed a heart in the air

I heard the old songs radiating from you
I heard the old songs radiating from you

Comments by John Darnielle About this SongEdit

  • "I have a lot of problems with the way I titled this one, for reasons that should be obvious. But I titled it that way anyway, uh, because of certain religious beliefs that pretty much the entire indie rock community is uncomfortable with me having, but that's all I have to say." -- 1996-01-15 - Brownie's - New York City, NY
