lyrics

Baited in the yard
Lips tucked, door ajar
There’s nothing I can say to you
Leaning against your car

Thank you for your keys
They will bring you peace
Your camera skips down the stair
Shatters under stars

When we were young
There was nothing to hold us back
Gagged and bound
Nothing to hold us back

I will take you there
It’s quiet and dark
I’m sorry for your car
And what we shared in the dark

When we were young
There was nothing to hold us back
Gagged and bound
Nothing to hold us back

Quiet now…
Silent how…

Years from this place
As Halloween fades to grey
I warm you by the fire
Smoke gets in your eyes
