lyrics

it’s the way that i’ve been lately
too far from all that sanity
you’ve been dragging me up, i’ve been bringing you down
don’t forget to call me while i’m still around

hold on, slow me down, it’s all a lie
i’m the rougher type and i don’t know why
try to make out the scrawl on the notebook lines
all i do i do so i can call you mine

it gets better no it doesn’t believe my tongue
god damn i was the one
so don’t take me wrong i got nothing to hide
backed against the wall to make me cry

and the stronger now solemn how’s and the i don’t knows
the long lonesome type you know how it goes
take a swing make it hurt, make me fall to the ground
it’s the way i been since i showed up in town

i’ve been out too late in this town without my shoes
i’d never thought i’d have any reason for the blues
but my hat fell in the dust and i lost the fight you knew
don’t trust a man who’s eyes you can't see through

so tell me i reached you at the wrong time
did we fall out of touch before you fell into mine
something’s saying that the air was heavier
the poet buried his heart in the earth
