lyrics

I loved you before
he ever met you
I’ll keep
my mouth
shut.

You walked in that door
and I look forward
where there’s
no breath
but

I watched him take you
time knows those who
need fall
down with
it

But time’s moving on
you‘re golden and strong
I hope
to see
you meeting new loves.

burn that paper
drive North, ashes scattered
spend my nights alone
on the Spur Road

You pound those ties down
the railcar speeds now
until
you bury
it.

But the spurs, they rise up
in the heat of winter
before
that hole’s
fixed.

I’m fallen, slipping
beneath the sleepers.
I long
to find
her.

burn this letter
drive North, ashes scattered
spend my nights alone
on the Spur Road

Can’t you see I’m dying here? I’ve been so far without you but can’t you come home? Without you I’m trying to kill the hope inside of me. I refuse to replace the abandoning. Drive the spikes into the mourning. Puncture lungs and breathe.

But the streetlamps move to the moon
and the wheat blades move while the sun’s down
I am glad
to be alive
right now.

I loved you before
he ever met you
I’ll keep
my mouth
shut.
