lyrics

You were staring at my hands
Like they were a corpse
Useless and with history
Beauty and remorse

You were wearing a shirt
That would let you breathe
The shadows of your breasts
Made it hard for me

To watch your words of wisdom
Stumble out your mouth
How you could change the world if you could just make rent
And grind along your route

The eighteen hour days
That grinded you away
Made your frail body
Glow in the summer shade

An exhausted pretty woman
Drinking in the sun
Reminded me of how long it'd been
Since I'd really known someone

And I watched your words of wisdom
Stumbled out your mouth
A steady stream of memories
You could never do without

Your hair placed carefully
By the unforgiving wind
The way you crossed your legs
And the breath that I held in

As I watched your words of wisdom
Stumble out your mouth
Shake the air and hit me hard
As I let myself breathe out
