lyrics

my voice is low, “I told you so”
then wait to hear
your rain won’t come, our land is done
you won’t draw near

CHANNEL
when it’s over, I won’t recall what I said
when it’s over, I‘ll see your face instead

VERSE
bars locked with key, I won’t believe
the pale blue sky
verdict rings true, your words are few
the last daylight

BRIDGE
there’s nothing to be gained
nothing to be saved
my last chance you sold to me
but you knew I’d never see
you knew I’d throw away the key

VERSE
the judgment came, won’t be the same
I took, you gave
the cradle, youth; our love misused
await the grave

BRIDGE
there’s nothing to be gained
nothing to be saved
our last dance you stole from me
but you knew I’d never see
you knew I’d throw away the key
