lyrics

This Bed We Made

You’re pulling on your summer dress
I’m feeling like a fucking mess
Everything that once made sense
It has all gone to shit

I watch you smoke a cigarette
Sitting on the window set
Your eyes search the dark skyline
I tell myself everything is fine

The radio it softly hums
The distant sound of a drum
You light another cigarette
From your chin you wipe the sweat

I’m afraid if I up and leave
For years to come I’ll only see
You smoking that cigarette
And on your brow a string of sweat

This bed is not our bed
And everything we said
It all fell apart in the end
Put on your wedding ring
Listen as fate sings
Listen as she cuts our wings

You leave the room walk down the hall
Your silhouette it looks small
The setting sun now has gone
To the dark where we’ve withdrawn

I dress inside this room alone
I hear you talk on the telephone
Your voice is a static wave
And I’m its lonely useless slave

This bed is not our bed
And everything we said
It all fell apart in the end
Put on your wedding ring
Listen as fate sings
Listen as she cuts our wings

I hear you walk into the room
As if it were a cold tomb
The country music song that plays
It understands these final days

You wet your lips as if to speak
You lift a hand to my cheek
Your green eyes fall to the floor
We say no words I’m out the door

This bed is not our bed
And everything we said
It all fell apart in the end
Put on your wedding ring
Listen as fate sings
Listen as she cuts our wings
