lyrics

i won’t lay where i’m not wanted anymore
like old furniture cast out on the back porch

on the road and begging with no bread in hand
and no better plan
haunted by impulses and eyes
that will always be larger than my heart

you took my hand
i gave my word
the meaning fades
while shadows burn
as you fade out
into to the crowd
the world is still
without a sound

now i'm free of all you built around me
with the old myth of new beginnings calling

on the road and begging with no bread in hand
wooden docks under the moon
wasted on her cheap perfume
giving in to impulses and eyes
that will always be larger than my heart

we went to bed
and moved the earth
now were at
a loss for words
rain beats down
the freeway south
the sky hangs low
i can’t see out
