Album: Track 3 on What the Toll Tells
And I'm a go make my bed Tuck in the other side These confessions are mine But I'll not claim a word This restless parade Yes I watched it go by Through the cracks in my palm Seen them all gone Some sequence of lives Well she calls out alone With the pain in her voice It's the wound of betrayal It's the weapon of choice Left her heart on display Though that she'll deny Two tattoos of skin One of ice one of tin For the days have gone by But I ain't one to reminisce But close my heart and clench my fists Now the days swiftly pass With the chest full of fear Here the minutes are hours But the moments are years And old acquaintances passed In trios, in pairs And if they stay or they go One struggles to know One struggles to care But out beyond the Ten Tree walls The wind blows hard the highway crawls And if you should pass the James Hotel Please stop in for I knew you well But that was oh so long ago And I never learned how to let go But when you fear your own faults And you're sick of this life When yo
u're reckless of hand And trembling the knife And all your doors prefer locks And your death prefers spoons Why wouldn't you wait one last laugh at fate Forever's too soon But across the field death bell knells Listen close hear the toll tell To run and tell my darling true My breath is short My days are few So please come down And take my hand My last demand And lead me to some slender rest And please dismiss what I confess (thanks to Novo for these lyrics)
