Take your time
Here’s a year
That should cover what I owe you
And some things that you will never know.

I wear your clothes till you come home,
You’ll know me by the way I’m dressing.
Now they seem to fit me
Better than my own.

I give to you the safe side of the curb
But I am tall as high beams
Shine up my back.
And I am straight briars
Come bending past.

Just look for branches tied in bows
Cos I loved you to ribbons
And you keep them with you
As you go.

I took the hairpins from your head
And tried to ask them why they led
You to believe
That you should live alone.

But I give to you the safe side of the curb.
But I am tall as high beams
Shine up my back.
And I am straight as briars
Come bending past.

Take my brother’s pistol and put it in your bag,
Take my winter jacket and put it in your bag.
Take my brother’s pistol and put it in your bag,
Take my winter jacket and put it in your bag.

I give to you the safe side
I give to you the safe side
I give to you the safe side
Of the curb.
But I am tall as high beams
Shine up back
And I am straight as briars come bending past
Your cold shadow leaves,
Your cold shadow leaves.
Your cold shadow leaves.
