lyrics

The last few months of the year have been hard
your hands dried from the salt
That note don’t give a damn for you
idle now to a fault
There’s a hangman’s curve coming down the road
I can feel you pulling from home
I won’t break my back to hold you back
or love you less when I’m alone

Kept your daddy’s flask clean and tucked away
Another Sunday kindles sundown in your veins
You’re running out the family line with the bars you claim
The horses come in pairs
The horses come in pairs against the reins

There’s a trick with your flame and the scars you left
your burns itch more than most
Sweating through sheets on frozen days
I spent years running down your ghost
I ain’t waiting on the days to change
a drink can’t change a thing
On auto-pilot in deafening silence
no fight tightens up the reins

Kept your daddy’s flask clean and tucked away
Another Sunday kindles sundown in your veins
You’re running out the family line with the bars you claim
The horses come in pairs
The horses come in pairs against the reins
The horses come in pairs against the reins

No you can’t set it down
No you can’t set it down
No you can’t set it down
No you can’t set it down
No you can’t
