lifeblood: songs: lyrics: boxes of bones


she said
look at all these houses
they're just boxes of bones
hearts still beat
within them but they're
harder than stone

sun sank into west texas
(new moon rose)
moon rose without a sound
wheels kept rolling
wind swept past
as our lopsided world spun
round

she needs as much
time as it will take
too make that climb
i'd like to help her out
but it's too soon
to start thinking about
new love
(new love)

i guess love let her down
the last guy really must have
knocked her around
she's gonna wait it out
(there's too much at stake)
there's too much at stake
to start thinking about
(to think about)
new love
(new love)

she needs as much
time as it will take
too make that climb
i'd like to help her out
(but it's too soon)
but it's too soon
to start thinking about
new love

she needs as much
time as it will take
too make that climb
i'd like to help her out
(i'd like to help her out)
but it's too soon
to start thinking about
new love
(new love)
new love

every strangers
face i see
reads a strange familiarity
her eyes are fixed
wide open in this
misty morning
morning
