Twister (The Rooks)

I crossed my line

seen this all before

You say its love

but always one foot out the door

 

See this should be so clear

Got my head full of time to fly

and a belly-full of this will break me down.

Kick my content to the side

I find myself standing here

and I could swear I earned myself at least a year

but I would settle for a kiss goodnight

 

  - - - 

 

Love

leave slow.

let me roll

 (just livin’ out the lies that we throw down)

Love

please go

‘fore we loose our hold

(‘cause I ain’t too good at holding on)

 

   - - -

 

I split my time

between our bedroom and the floor

You ask me not to leave

keep me holding out for more

 

But you are never clear

Got your hands full of hold on tight

and your hold full of let me go

You tie my tongue on another lie

I find myself standing here

Oh my heart is sayin’ disappear

but I’ll settle for another try

 

   - - -

 

Love

leave slow

let me roll

 (Just livin’ out the lies that we throw down)

Love

please go

‘fore we loose our hold

(‘cause I ain’t too good at holding on)

Love

leave slow

let me roll

love

please go

‘fore we loose

love

please know

know I need

love

leave slow

‘cause I can’t go

love

don’t know

how to leave

love

tell me please

when to go

love

just leave

‘fore we loose

Let Down (The Rooks)

By the light

She’d already left my bed

And I didn't own the words

To hold her any longer

 

Night was done

And she was singing leave it dead

So I played echo to her song

Pretending all along

Pretending not to know the better

 

All the while sure

Even as we go

Time will pay our tolls

And we’ll never even know

 

In the morning

I button tight my chest

Shake her shiver from my bones

And hold out for the better

 

‘cause after all

everything I’ve done or said

I am aching for the light

The shudder in the night

The one to hold out when its over

 

All the while know

To settle for the shore

Long before I ever sink below

Its bound to kill me slow 

My head is tangled

But my body tells my sure

Even as we go

Time will pay our tolls

And we’ll never even know

 

So tell me what we left

Tell me what we let down

Tell me what we left

Tell me what we let down
