Cut down every fence in hope your memory’d slip away A cold wire, baptized Just one night remains I almost see you there, your shirt Hangs open, leave all the lights on. Into the night we tumble and cry out All of our fears and longing fingers Caught in your hair I’m longing for air And what only you give me and so I Chorus: Breathe through your mouth Sweat out the doubts You’re full in my hands, hold me down I'm no longer numb beneath your tongue I move into your every sound I cup my hands beneath the faucet hold it to your lips Your cheeks brush my fingertips Only four more hours but still I lay beneath your fire Tied up with you but feel undone The cold of the car seat the clench of my heart My secret hope the car won’t start Part of me’s still there in the calm of your room Part of me aches for the day I won’t have to leave you Chorus Bridge: I’m tingling from you still From your flesh and the thrill I’d steal your every moment Don’t let me go But the whiskeys burn is old I’m starting to go cold With every passing moment Don’t let me go But from the refuge of my mistakes I’ll count the bones beneath my face I’ll forget you

Verse: Snow begins Put your hands on my skin I’ll keep you warm All through the storm But the heat of your breath I feel it on my neck, you could always melt a piece of me no matter how cold. It feels outside. The world’s lost in white But what’s not to like? When the trees disappear Only your face is clear Gently full that’s when I feel the pull, feel the pull, I want to stay, I want to stay forever Chorus 1: But I need to go I’ll wade through the snow Til I’m lost on the outside as well My mind is a flood World frozen as my blood And the words that were poison in your ears. I was cautious but cruel Gentle but a fool To think the path would lay straight Away from you. So now I concede That I long to bleed For the one that I left In the cold. Verse: If I had to bet I never would have guessed You’d regret It pains me to hear To watch you disappear though I push away you with my hands. Were we a fit? It felt like it on your lips But if the wages of our love pay just nickels and dimes and what can we buy but a handful of bitter words To throw in each others face, how I Wish I could trace the curve of you with my hands but I’ve other plans our time it has slipped away. Chorus 2: I need to go I’ll wade through the snow Til the blood fails my hands and my feet. Though it weighs on your mind You committed no crime But to shelter yourself from the storm So the blame on your lips Let it die with my kiss goodbye And kill the shame you wear like a crown Cause you’re not the queen And now there’s no need To call

The day begins and ends in flame But here that place is one and same And the shadows never tire But the river can’t dream about the snow With the sun spinning over its head It can’t remember how the cars drove over Chorus: Won’t let my thoughts catch up to me Think I can stay numb If I just stay up Under the midnight sun The ground is frozen For one hundred feet below Summer forget to tell the ice to melt Muddy water got it’s fingers deep in the stone Between a million years of mountains That slipped beneath the ground Chorus Bridge: The miles pile up behind A wall I hope to never climb Can I bury myself up north? Chorus

The city lights will learn their worth They’re like stars burning here on the earth And birds begin to crowd the tree tops They wonder why the water rises Soon the bay will cover every bridge reflected in the flood the moon begins to turn to blood Azrael's call breaks the chains on our feet It’s hard to walk as the sun and gravity grow weaker. And all the dead begin to speak. Something like a dome covers the sky And eye covered wheels roam the night My brothers too betrayed The priest's forgotten how to pray Angels carry away the dying Throats full of trumpets, wings are sighing Our flesh is called unto the clay As the world begins to fall away. C But our love is just awakening You hold my arm in the fog it is so nice We catch the sight of headlights sweep But the light doesn’t reach where we lay. On a bed of pine we dream of the kiss That’ll leap like fire from our lips And the storm scatters from us until there’s only quiet. We close our eyes but cannot sleep The scythes have fallen and begun to reap The streets where all our bullets lay The minefields where the children play. Their shadows grow we hear the scream Of creatures no ones ever heard or seen We shiver in the deepest cold We beg the sun to not withhold The warning fires begin to dim The earth peels back reveals the rusted skin Of beasts that for 2,000 years Have hungered for the blood of man. Ultra violence in my childrens' eyes A tunnel through the frantic night I wore my countries sins like a badge of gold Against my skin they felt so cold. Chorus: But our love is just awakening You hold my arm in the fog it is so nice We catch the sight of headlights sweep But the light doesn’t reach where we lay. On a bed of pine we dream of the kiss That’ll leap like fire from our lips And the storm scatters from us until there’s only quiet.

Verse: The abandoned house when I was young me and my brothers threw a brick through the plate glass window. It landed on a bed that’s not used no more the glass and the streetlights make constellations on the bedroom floor. That’s how it was on that clear August night that’s how your eyes crashed through me They’re playing our favorite song we’re out on the floor I’m thinking about when I first met you… Pre-chorus x2: Well your glass is empty they’ve brought the music down low the way the light falls on your face come on let’s steal back home. Chorus: And you’ve got so much soul I saw you met the devil at the crossroads and you stole his bag you robbed him blind the devils going home empty handed tonight. Verse: The sky was gray, I heard the thunder sound You drove over the mountain When I was feeling down. but every mile I go can’t tell if I’m going downhill think I’ll curl up beneath your windowsill Counting our every fight Counting our every late night I tried to save you some of what’s left Of me They’re playing our favorite song still out on the road I start thinking about when I first met you. Pre-chorus x2: Well your glass is empty they’ve brought the music down low the way the light falls on your face come on let’s steal back home. Chorus: And you’ve got so much soul I saw you met the devil at the crossroads and you stole his bag you robbed him blind the devils going home empty handed tonight. Yes you stole his bag You robbed him blind Oh the devils going home Empty handed tonight. Verse: I’m strumming our favorite song In the middle of the night I’m thinking about I’m thinking about you I’m thinking about Ending: You in your summer dress bare feet in the grass your hair held back with the wind and ten thousand miles of May doesn’t have the life you do You’ve got your head held high your eyes hold the light I swear I’ve never seen the sun shine so bright. And you’re something holy I can barely name tongues of fire on the rooftops raising up the lame You’re something holy And I will always see you When they were playing our favorite song We were out on the floor
