lyrics

When you pound your chest leave the rest for me
When you skin your knees I will drag you to your feet
Hold me in your heart
I can fall asleep in your arms

When you clear your throat to shout above the cars
I will close my eyes to the pain that you can cause
Hold me in your heart
I can fall asleep in your arms

But it’s not pretty
It’s not warm
It won’t steer you north to safety in a raging storm
It’s ragged
And it’s cold
It’s three cracked ribs from a punch you took a week ago

No we can’t outrun the shadows that we cast
Only fools fight for a better past

Now the nights are short and the threads in us are worn
Rest can wait cause I’m shaken at the core
Hold me in your heart
I can fall asleep in your arms

But it’s not pretty
It’s not warm
It won’t steer you north to safety in a raging storm
It’s ragged
And it’s cold
It’s three cracked ribs from a punch you took a week ago

No we can’t outrun the shadows that we cast
Only fools fight for a better past
