lyrics

Lord, how long
Have people talked at me with wagging tongues?
For some conversation closes in like dogs
A wild pack with ears back and snapping jaws
And I can't think of anything worth saying

But then after twenty-three years
A word from her was buried here
And its veins branched out bearing seven songs
On each limb a letter that spoke in new tongues
And I could say anything to her

And the space between every breath that we breathed
Was filled with our voices and words
Whether whispered or hollered
They rained down like water
And curled through the cracking black earth

Late one night
I dreamed I went under the knife
Because they found something off in my tests
So they cut and opened up my chest
And I could feel everything they did

And the last words you said
They cut with a serrated edge
Because you thought I'd be numb to the pain
But you could pump morphine through each one of my veins
And I'd still feel everything you said

And the space between every breath that we breathed
Was filled with our voices and words
Now when you say my name
It's like an empty refrain
You repeat at the end of each verse

And the space between every breath that we breathed
Was filled with our voices and words
Now it's just a cold exchange
You might hear between two strangers
And it hurts all the more it's deserved

It don't mean anything
