Lyrics

> With my footsteps there's a hollow sound,
> Like the wind that blew through the south cold.
> And I hadn't looked down for fear of something
> Beneath to hold me,
> It could give out any time.
> You all drifted out from these shores,
> finding photographs or love letters in bottles battered, worn.
> While in shallow salt water, singing sore, you made up your mind.
> Your friends they were shopping next door,
> Spending money on things that they couldn't afford
> So in tide pools too deep for meager oars,
> I stand here in the stillness until a change of tide.
> Stay open, stay open,
> To catch my fall. What a shame that I would splinter you, or hinder you at all-
> I won't give my love for free.
> I won't give my love for free.
> But please,
> Take it from me.
> I'm trying to shed my bitter rind,
> but outside from your jokes my laughter died cold.
> It's a long drive, and my thoughts dance slow behind.
> Like the shell of an urchin dried in the sand,
> your favorite book with no pages,
> I'm the shell of a man.
> And I'm fumbling with two sets of keys, but I'm setting them down.
> Your words they hold onto my skin like the wind from the north of your hair,
> Asphalt, it buried dead plants, choked dying plans.
> Stay open, stay open,
> To catch my fall. What a shame that I would splinter you, or hinder you at all-
> I won't give my love for free.
> I won't give my love for free.
> But please,
> Take it from me.
> Oh my god
> Think I'm falling to pieces?
> Oh my god
> This is falling apart.
> Oh my god
> I think I'm turning it over.
> Oh my god
> This is out of my hands
