lyrics

Digging in the dirt
Started playing with fire
Everyone adored you
Everywhere we'd go
I was so proud
It was difficult I guess
But I wouldn't call it work
Wouldn't give you nothing less
Wasn't much, but it was love
For what its worth
Hush beautiful boy
I don't mean that as a threat
I love you, I love you, I love you
You were different and it fit you
So I knew you'd have to go
This will always be where you are from
Not always where you'll grow
Have you got everything you need?
Is there anything that you want?
I only want you to be happy
Because you don't know
You don't know
What you mean to me
In the beginning there was distance
But now it doesn't seem so far
I'd tell you if you'd only listen
But I know you and I know
Thats not who you are
Digging in the dirt
Starting playing with that fire
Burned a hole right through your soul
The death of your desire
You've got everything you need
You've got everything you want
I'd buy you mockingbirds and diamond rings
Because you don't know
You don't know
What you mean to me
You don't know
You can't know
What you are to me

Running on hubris, fumes and parades of exhibition, this acoustic debut lingered as an idea then ballooned into an ambitious navel-gazing interpretation of the Book Of Revelation. I was gonna ask permission, but... ... more
