lyrics

I swallow my heart each time
Forms silhouetted by the stage lights
Hearing our fates red song
I guess I misheard

He asks why Glory fell,
He asks what passing fad had happened
Pondering back, I say he had his part

We want it to be a square
Proper and neat at all the angles
Hopeful the kids won’t grow
Out of our shoes

I’ll be right here
I’ll hold your hand again
The struggle with fear
The sad way it never ends
I’ll be right here
I’ll hold the chord again
I’ll sing the verse and prose
As though this grief has never happened
I’ll tip the scales

In theory it all should work
I’m sure we look right as rain on paper
But given the play of cards
I’ve got my doubts

Road songs for three or more
8 hours back and all for nothing
We see the point "A" but don’t see the end

I’ll form the chords
As long as my fingers hold
These words are not mine
This I now surely know
Well I’ll be right here
I’ll hold your hand again
I’ll sing the verse and prose
As though this grief has never happened
I’ll tip the scales
