"Marietta" as written by and Kanene Pipkin Brian Elmquist....
Marietta
You lost me a long time ago
in your midnight
the flood and the fire of my soul

And I let you in again, I let you in again
You sleep with the lights on
I let you in again

Marietta
the loneliness burns at your door
in your midnight
she seeps through the cracks in your floor

And I let you in again, I let you in again
You sleep with the lights on
what you call your family are gone
I let you in again
and patiently wait for your storm

The worry of what couldn’t be
the love for the lust of your name
of losing, of winning, of striving, of leaving
and stealing and breaking and shame

And I am that man

The worry of what couldn’t be
the love for the lust of your name
of losing, of winning, of striving, of leaving, of stealing
and breaking and shame
of fighting and failing and lying and telling yourself
that you’re clean of the blame

I let you in again, I let you in again
you sleep with the lights on
what you call your family are gone

I let you in again
and patiently wait for your storm
