Silhouettes and Sunsets

lyrics

Oh I left before I knew that I was leaving,
Packed my bags before I knew where I would go
Won’t take it back because it started up my healing
And led me to see the throughline in my road


Can you hear my verses clear across the country?
Through the snowstorm and the sunshine and the rain?
As I travel looking for my next adventure
And you get caught up in your bookshelves once again


How do your days pass?
Do they flow together seamless as a song?
Or are they patched and stitched some soft and others faded?
Like a quilt who knows that everything belongs


Call me coward, call me stupid, call me selfish
I’ve got feelings that I can’t afford to fight
I feel your silent stroke of turning back the pages
As my candle burns at both ends through the night


And you’ve got my love all tied up in your bedroom
Oh, I’ve told you once and I’ll tell you again
I’m not scared, I’m just saving up my body
So I’ll be clean when I can finally let you in


How do your days pass?
Do they flow together seamless as a song?
Or are they patched and stitched some soft and others faded?
Like a quilt who knows that everything belongs


There’s so much that I don’t know about your life, dear
Things you say and who you say them to
I hope you reserve some of your words just for the times when
You’ve got silhouettes and sunsets in your view
Hope you reserve some of your words just for the times when
You’ve got silhouettes and sunsets in your view
