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
