Oh my hands which hold this face
make this grasp a tight embrace.
Walking feet don’t lose your pace
you’ve been so slow but won this race.

Hello Heart you’re a bumbling mess,
I'm beat when you beat out of my chest.
Conversations that don’t exist between my brain and all these passages
when all I want to be is the hard-hearted man you’ll never see again.

Oh my skin what a mess you’re in
but it’s hard to know where to begin.
In 20 years you’ve changed three times,
I can’t afford to lose this life tonight.

Hello bones so skinny and frail,
which move so slow and taste so stale

    General CommentJeff Pianki seems like an amazing person. This song is inspiration.

    This is a classic folk-ish tune, I just wish it were longer.
