In that way we were like late night trains
Dragging dark and empty carriages behind (in our minds)
In that way it felt like I was looking out
On you as a forest of plantation pines

And I am the woodsman, I will cut you down to size
When I guess what you're thinking, don't you dare act surprised -
You give yourself away
Give yourself away

On that day we were both laying blame
Like cables between islands we'd let ourselves become
And I could've sworn I saw myself suspended
In the bottle you keep when you need to feel numb

But I won't be the stopper, I can't stop you in your tracks
And when I hold you to this, no I won't just relax
Because it's bigger than that!
