lyrics

Well you stood there with that stupid grin across your face
and and a scarlet little rose behind your ear
why’d you let the thorns stay in
now they siphon from your skin
little pools of red no bigger than a tear

We tumbled through the trees before the band was done
pushed me up against a willow filled with birds
we were thankful for the song
though we did not sing along
our mouths preoccupied with anything but words

Wake me up, make coffee every morning
keep me sane, and well outside my head
drink with me some whisky by the full moonlight
Lie to me
Say it’ll be alright

I hungered for you ever since that afternoon
if you were there you didn’t make your presence known
I wandered all around
but you did not make a sound
so crestfallen I turned and headed home

The chimney coughed its smoke into the summer air
when I reached the old log cabin for the night
there should’ve been a whole damn choir
as you laid out by the fire
to score the primal glory of that sight

Wake me up, make coffee every morning
keep me sane, and well outside my head
drink with me some whisky by the full moonlight
Lie to me
Say it’ll be alright

My darling dear, my sun and stars, my everything
and other hollow pseudonym
if you could do these things for me i swear to you
i’ll realize your every whim

Wake me up, make coffee every morning
keep me sane, and well outside my head
drink with me some whisky by the full moonlight
Lie to me
Say it’ll be alright
