Behind you, there's nothing no past to speak of
As if you could speak anyway
Your cheeks are aglow with the summers you promised
And the springs that you gave away

A leg up a pick up, in a time of no words
The stories your face could inspire
Slow as at seems how quickly we die with our dreams
But you live forever


Your ultramarine
Your crimson and Green
All speak to me like sweet rain on paper

Evangeline, Evangeline

The moon up and rises and shows you the way
While the sunshine turns you away
You buy futures in heaven and you wait by the door
There will always be less and there will always be

Would you speak of the ugly and all of the pain
Of flowers that bloom in the absence of rain
the prisons we build with the words that we love
How we spend it all and it's never enough

The birds are still singing outside your front door
They say this is the way it should be
But the men are still fighting their unholy war
For some reason too hard to believe

There are those who show mercy and those who show might
There are those who would rather sleep than do right
But somehow it just doesn't seem right
That you're the one to bleed
