lyrics

So the bough broke, cradle fell down
you gathered your head in your hands
they will know where you stand
until you sit down

Lens will open my eye
to the sound of this down-crashing plane
took a year-full of frames just so you
could take ‘em down
down

Through your bad dreams,
through your bad days
that wake you and shake you alive
if you’re not alright, why can’t you say it?

Lens will open my eye
to the sound of this fast-passing train
if you’re not okay, why can’t you play it?

It was here
but there
it goes
look at it with your eyes closed
you will see you don’t know
what you’re doing
ruined
with all your little lies

So the day broke, watched the sky fall
it’s held up with mercy and wire
if you’re not on fire, what’s got you screaming?

I will open my eyes
to the sound of this fast-passing train
heard an old man say he was too old for
dreaming

She was here
but there
she goes
look at her with her eyes closed
you will see you don’t know
what she’s doing
ruined with all
she chose
look at her with her eyes closed
you will see you don’t know
how to get there
threadbare
with all your
little lies

She fits into the singer/songwriter category, but awkwardly, as her influences buckle together folk, gospel, rock and jazz. ... more
