Morning Song

lyrics

i didn't think we'd meet again
i said what i had to say
i was never much of a fixer
i'm better at walking away -
a short goodbye, and your brother's eyes
and that bus ride in the rain

it just wasn't our time, that's all
it's not as if i belonged
i find it hard to stay in one place
and the heartbreak's much better at dawn
i'll sell you warmth, and i'll hold you close
but in the morning i'm usually gone

it's hard to go forward
when you're busy looking back
though we've been pretty big on ambition
it's always been commitment that we've lacked
and your tearful eyes, and your sleepy sighs
are just more things not to pack

outside the street is stirring
they're cleaning last night's sin
mine too were washed by sunrise
them and my crumbling skin
the sky was set aflame by our childish game
and you cried playing violin
we lie awake with an empty slate
but in the end we just give in

i didn't think we'd meet again
i said what i had to say
i was never much of a fixer
i'm better at walking away -
a short goodbye, and your brother's eyes
and that bus ride in the rain

forgive us sweet daughters
the sins of our fathers
and bless my brothers
pray
