lyrics

You were some course that offered me miles
a friend in my trials.
And her, what she stirred, well it hurts if worthwhile
What if I stayed 'til old and I'm swollen in my veins?
Where you could trace the man I've been, who wore you thin.

I love you, the girl of my youth
Don't you wonder how

And the mornings that broke you down, you search for the boy you seldomly found.
If your arms could just pull him out, he wants you still
yeah I always will

I'll miss your soul, the moment it goes, but i should have known
just how much I've kept from those I know best
How selfish my crown

Out in their lores for hours, I've had my fill
I took the worms for cowards, but how they kill
I look forward to life as the father of kids
Have you reserved my heart for this?
Could you show me how?

Have I told you my honest doubts?
Well I'm still not sure I'll ever dry out
Because you'll be hard to do without
I'll want, but still, what is there until?

I'll miss your soul, the moment it goes, and slips through these folds
But how long will death take to make sense?
When none can be found.
