Lyrics

I trace a never-ending picture with a disappearing pen
She said "I see the angel with the synthesizer in her hand
What's that supposed to be beside her?
Is that supposed to be a man?"
Look, I did the best I can

Hold me down
Hold me still
Love me like
You always will

Kiss me like you've solved it
Kiss me like you solved it

You left me bluer than your bracelets in the motel bath
And when you said "I loved you," well I had to laugh
Because what was that?
Now it's raining on the ocean every time you send your best
It feels like someone forcing open an umbrella in my chest

Now there really ain't no use
To talk anymore
It's raining on the ocean
It's raining on the shore

Hold me down
Hold me still
Love me like
You always will

Kiss me like you solved it
Kiss me like you solved it

The lovely explosion
Unfolds its tiny wings
And a tiny box
In a giant screen TV
Above the busy bar
I clutched my coat
And clenched my heart
And hard to know
That I was younger yesterday
Than I ever guessed before
Climbing out of hell
On a ponytail
To kick in your back door
And then I slept under our statue
The one in Mercy Park
That I said looks just like you
Even more so when it's dark

'Til you refuse to yield
Your useless sword and shield
And I woke up in the garden
I woke up in the sun
I woke up like a
Bullet wakes up from a gun
Too late to turn around
Ah, hammer down and done
I'm done, I'm done goddamn I'm through
Evangeline, I'll never need another dream of you

Just hold me down
Hold me still
Love me like
You always will

Kiss me like you solved it
Kiss me like you solved it

Hold me down
Hold me still
Love me like
You always will

Hold me down (cast will come)
Hold me still (from the sky)
Love me like (rust and rhyme)
You always will (the world will unwind)

Hold me down (rust and rhyme)
Hold me still (the world will unwind)
Hold me down (rust and rhyme)
Rust and rhyme
