lyrics

9. BURNSIDE

Lightning fills the sky and the night finally broke its fever
Wondering if my love for you could grow any deeper
Somewhere in the east the nights ablaze with forest fires
Just tell me when you’re tired, and we can go to sleep

Whiskey burns my throat, the bottle makes a home for flowers
We get paid by the hour so each payday feels like Christmas
Sweat drips down my chest, and I forget to say I’m sorry
Please lay your burden on me, I don’t know how else to pray

But I don’t think that I could ever be all that scared of you,
Standing at the sink in bare feet gathering water in handfuls

The windows open wide and my minds a book of dog-eared pages
Now tell me: what’s your favorite part of being alive?
