lyrics

You’re all thick hides and shipwrecked barns. You’re all neon lights in the motel signs. Burn hot, in your desert cold. Burn hot, in your desert cold. Even in the cities you can hear the howl of the wolves.

You’re all bottle caps and unzipped jeans. You’re all duffle bags, searchin’ for a scene. You’ve got goose bumps, and your skin is cold. You’ve got two left feet and you’re feelin’ old. You’re terrified you won’t be as great as they told you.

Now I can’t picture his face or his name, but I remember how the river ran dry, that night in Canada. Your hair was dreaded and long, it made a nest, as he told us ‘bout the time that he jumped off the edge of America. Of America. Oh, America...gonna make you my home. Oh, America. Ah America. Yeah, America...gonna make you my own.

It’s so bittersweet, thinking about it all, how you rose too fast, leaving nothing to break your fall. Your cake’s half eaten and it’s growing mold. You lined up your cards but then you had to fold. And all you left us is the dust, the glitter and gold.

Your cake’s half eaten and it’s growing mold. You lined up your cards but then you had to fold. And all you left us is the dust, the glitter and gold.
