lyrics

I was hanging on by the strings that you already cut.
See me danglin’ dear, down here where the weather’s rough?

It’s easy: you lie, I lie
right down this mine all night--
I try, you try--

I was hanging on, time-worn, then I let it go.
You would never say It’s too dry
when I pray for rain.
You were full of luck
while my failures added up,
but I just wanted to sing
tunnel songs for what you believe.

It’s easy: you lie, I lie
right down this mine all night.
I try, you try,
but it’s easier to know
how I’d lie to you,
right down this mine all night.
And I try, you try,
to hide it well.

I was hanging on by the strings that you already cut.
Slowly stirred from bed by the calls that were echoing,
begging for a soul with the heart that we grew up on
like I never meet anymore.
