about

times trying to kill me, and I'm just trying to kill time

lyrics

It’s dry as a bone here this summer
The weeds have grown waist high since you’ve been gone
With your words still sidewindin’ through me
They’re dragging me down; I can’t seem to push on

And I woke up this morning hung over again
So I drank my last bottle of wine
Burnin’ and bitter going down, down, down
Time’s trying to kill me
And I’m just tryin’ to kill time

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place

The yellow jackets are nesting in the rafters
I can hear them hummin’ from my room
I can swear that it’s you whispering to me baby
And I swear that I’ll be broken down to ashes soon

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place


I don’t need a stranger’s hand to guide me
To lead me to some higher ground
‘Cuz your love just takes me to a cold dark place
Where a part of me is still hidin’
It ain’t ready to come out

There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
It’s become
My resting place
There is a bare hook and nail
On this wall, baby
Where your picture used to hang
And I’ll wait forever in this house all alone
‘Cuz it’s become
My resting place
