lyrics

I watched you slip with every step as I ran by
From fifty meters back you volleyed words into sky
Your heart is roaming somewhere in these old pines
As sure as spring will come, you melted mine

I could feel you in my memory when I woke
My t-shirt smelled of liquor and some stale campfire smoke
We sent it up in signals so that old farm town
Knew they would catch us driving fast with windows down

Don't hold fast, don't stay the course, don't keep steady
Don't watch your words, just let them fall right out of your face
Say it loud, I'll sing it back, I love you more
Say it loud, I'll sing it back, I love you more

Long weekend burning rubber up and down the state
I drew it on my body if that memory ever fades
Or the story gets confused and battered up from the abuse
Of recollecting our collected fairy tales

So if you're wondering which version I'm gonna tell
When I wake up on a bar stool after being dragged through hell
By disease after disease, cause they're all coming for me and my family

I'll say, oh well, here are the facts:
(or at least as well as I can recall)
You're not a myth
You are just chemicals
You're not improbable
You're not a miracle or anything at all

So don't hold back, don't stay the course, don't keep steady
Don't watch your words, just let them fall right out of your face
Say it loud, I'll sing it back, I love you more
Say it loud, I'll sing it back, I love you more
