lyrics

So this is how it goes
This is how it feels to lose your home
To give your son
To leave him on a field
Tethers in his thumbs
And though it hurts like a fire
I’ll stay out here awhile

When I finally fall
It’ll be flat on my face
Under the weeping wall
And I’ll drink to every doubt
I’ll drink until the sky and stars blink out
If you won’t give me a sign
I’ll stay out here all night
And I’ll go up in smoke

Leaving down the aisle
In my wedding coat
With my shoes undone
My shirt untucked
I never really had that much luck
But it goes up in smoke

Always said I’d hang myself
Given enough rope
I always wondered
Now I know
This is how it feels
To be let go
You go up in smoke

I’ll be leaving like the sun
Leaving like a bird
Swallowing its song
Leaving like a crown
Leaving like a bruise
Leaving like the morning star falling
And when it all turns to dust
I’ll see your sweet kingdom come
And I’ll go up in smoke

Leaving down the river
Like dirty foam
I’d have gave my tongue
Just to hear your voice
I’d have gave the world
For a little hope
But it goes up in smoke

You only get one call
But there’s no telephone
I just want to fight
I don’t want to talk
So this is how it feels
To be let go
You go up in smoke
