lyrics

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
