lyrics

Well I couldn't move in the night
These shadows took my last breath away
And I'd love to put up a fight
Instead I'm inside
Paintings of the other kind

N' I can't recall my face
I forgot how the river flows
And It's December oh I wish I could remember
One thousand roses
That withered just for you

Well I couldn't leave me there
I couldn't breathe in the end
The cold was all that remained
It never snows when I need it most

Oh I've been rotting in the water
I've been sinking down in them bottles
And I need to fake where I'll get
Cause it's all gone along and
Made me who I am

N I hung from iron strings
The catacombs of dust and bones
Circled the streets in place
Where had you gone, where did they take you my love

N' it's just too far, too far, too far for me
N' it's just too long, too long, too long til I wake from my sleep

I am a lo-fidelity musician and I am folk out of the gutter. A blueberry farmer too. ... more
