"Cascades" as written by and Justin Wayne Ringle....
Bailey's her name and there's a price she takes.
Blurring lines while she ruthlessly raised the stakes.
And there's a mess that she made.

We kiss on the mouth with hearts that were bound and gagged.
The noose was broke the witness was the Cascades.

Do you remember me?
'Cause there's a piece of my mind in a field of dandelions.
Do you remember me?
'Cause there's a tale I tell.
It's made of rain and hell.

We will seldom speak,
and we will rarely talk.

Bailey your secret's known.
She weeps in the brush alone.
Loss wed to despair, in love when her womb was bare.

We kiss on the mouth with hearts that were bound and gagged.
The news was broke the witness was the Cascades.

A kiss, a touch, our bodies became arsonists to will and brains.
To him the cold-hearted thing was she came demanding rings.
The day was mute and hot.
We will rarely talk.
I'm just where you left me alone by them lilacs.

    General CommentThe line "A kiss, a touch, our bodies became arsonists to will and brains" indicates a moment of passion. Bailey found out she was pregnant and "the news was broke" and the Cascades are maybe the place where she told him. "To him the cold hearted thing was she came demanding rings" She wanted him to marry her but I think she lost the baby, had a miscarriage ("Loss wed to despair") but before they had this pressure hanging over their heads they were "in love when her womb was bare" but now they can't move past it ("We kiss on the mouth with hearts that were bound and gagged") because they know about what has happened ("Bailey your secret's known") and because of what has happened ("We will seldom speak, and we will rarely talk") it drove them apart.

    It is a very poignant song, very beautiful. I've been looking everywhere for the lyrics but have come up empty-handed. Thank you for posting them!
