You Could Be the Knife

from Thank You Birds 7" EP by Leaving Rouge

lyrics

It was a place like this
And through the windows I could see them
In their late-night stares
Reminding me of, something I used to believe
As rings of smoke, blew through the air
A momentary gesture that finds its place, and disappears

But my hands never fit with their machine
So you could be the knife
One in my heart one in each side

And all I want is to remember
Better days, and their rains prove to be
of no use to me
Spent it all on immortality
They forgot to live, they forgot to be

And outside these walls I've built
There's drunken laughter that
reminds me of that crazy dream I had
That someday, the whole world would be
At my back, and I'd open up
and everything would feel different

But my hands never fit with their machine
So you could be the knife
One in my heart one in each side
My eyes never caught the scenery
