heavy shoulders

 

When I was younger, you knew me better

But now I’m old and gray

I often wonder, about your lovers

And why they went away

 

So easily distracted

Seldomly in love

 

I don’t know if I wanna move slower

Cuz I’ve learned and because I’m getting older

The devil spoke so I leaned a little closer

Finding truth is like fighting heavy shoulders

 

You beg for chances, long walks and glances

My darling I can’t relate

Believe the liars

Follow the crowds

And regret while we lay

 

So easily distracted

Seldomly in love

 

I don’t know if I wanna move slower

Cuz I’ve learned and because I’m getting older

The devil spoke so I leaned a little closer

Finding truth is like fighting heavy shoulders

 

Because the faithful marks

The very foolish heart that loses it’s own way 

It’s always in-between 

The choice of good and mean, 

I could hardly hold the weight

 

I don’t know if I wanna move slower

Cuz I’ve learned and because I’m getting older

The devil spoke so I leaned a little closer

Finding truth is like fighting heavy shoulders

 

AWAy

Oh we built a boat out of sticks and stones

To float away to find a sort of home 

With books and maps and pens to draft our way

We drifted through the sea for a better day

 

Away is where we go

Away is all we know

 

They pointed west but we went east

We cup our eyes when we can't sleep

We hardly know the cause of floods

We only know the two of us

 

And fiery fires will keep us warm at night

And darkness flees our path at the speed the light 

We carve a place that's built upon our means  

When the coast gets clear, we can wake with ease 

 

away is where we go

away is all we know

 

They pointed west but we went east 

We cup our eyes when we can’t sleep

We hardly know the cause of floods

We only know the two of us 

Honey

Honey, call me honey

Give me something that I can keep

Maybe oh just maybe

You will need me, when you leave

 

Completely wrapped around an honest hurt

Oh can we make it work

You said to me

 

Give me something I can keep

Give me something I can keep

Give me something, something

 

Honey, call me honey

Give me something I can keep

Maybe oh just maybe

You will need me, when you leave

 

Completely wrapped around an honest hurt

Oh can we make it work

You said to me

 

That needing you is just the way we work

Don’t bruise me with your words

You said to me

 

Give me something I can keep

Give me something I can keep

Give me something, something 

 

LOW

Don’t cross your arms away from me

I think we should talk, I think you should leave

You’ve got a face that makes me feel gold

I’ve got a place where we could lay low 

 

I prefer better, though I prefer you 

I used to be sweeter, but I prefer you 

I prefer better, though I prefer you, I prefer, I prefer you

 

We’ve gotta be meaner, if we mean it this time 

With a ruthless mouth and vicious mind 

Maybe I’m bored or maybe it’s you

It might be good if we could be too 

 

I prefer better, though I prefer you 

I used to be sweeter, but I prefer you 

I prefer better, though I prefer you, I prefer, I prefer you

 

I prefer better, though I prefer you 

I used to be sweeter, but I prefer you 

I prefer better, though I prefer you, I prefer, I prefer you

 

The best

 

Oh no, we aren't the best

so low and filled with regret 

I'll say it again, I mean I'll sigh

you fucked up the place where I found light

oh what A fight

 

for the way my hands are bruised 

is the heart that beats for you

it was always you, it was always you

everything that I once said

meant to build not break my steps

let me hold onto what's left 

 

Go left, so i can stay right

forget the tricks and be nice

I'd rather be whole and left alone

you're nothing no good a hollow home, too cold

don't get too close

 

FOR THE WAY MY HANDS ARE BRUISED 

IS THE HEART THAT BEATS FOR YOU

IT WAS ALWAYS YOU, IT WAS ALWAYS YOU

EVERYTHING THAT I ONCE SAID

MEANT TO BUILD NOT BREAK your STEPS

LET ME HOLD ONTO WHAT'S LEFT 

 

you've done it again, I am your fool

it's breaking my heart this ritual
