So she says come in from the rain and, well, hell
I came in from the rain
It was cold, she had room
Hell, I suppose I'm not averse to being tamed
But things go how they go and
Come the snow I was starving in my sleep
With every road away closed and a fridge full of shit that didn't keep

We stayed in, dodged our friends, did some
Drugs and our best to disappear
In self-loathe and in lust and giving
In to the easiest fears
Still the worry piled up, and I said, "Sister,
We won't ever be free"
And I really made a mess of that scene after it made a mess of me

Then when the days all got shorter, I said
"It's hard to even say now who I am"
I hadn't told the truth in months, no, I'd been
Lying even to my lamb
And she said "stay tough," but, sister, it's
Hard, and I'm feeling down
'Cause I got death in my meat
And I'm tired of dragging it around

So then owing less trait to any woman
Or man than a beast
I packed up what was left of my shit in one bag to head east
Towards a love so bitter, so taxing, so sad it was alarming
And then even the good neighbor's kids, they seemed more vicious than charming

So I sat at your window like some sad old pit bull
Cocked my ears and barked at the door at any, every old sound I did hear
And stayed up long into the nights pacing
And wishing that I had been strong
'Cause I listened to my friends about this one, and on this one they were wrong

So fuck it, no more a mole in the ground or a bear in the winter
Let it be broken glass and bones
Let it be scratches and stitches and splinters

All right, tides going out, coming in and then leaving again
The moon chasing the sun after the
Moon and then it's dusk on your skin
And it's a long and difficult dance, but I think that maybe it's still good
Even though we all dance sometimes to a song that we don't love like we should
Yeah, even though we all have to dance sometimes to a song that we don't love like we should
