lyrics

Every year the stakes got higher as the well got drier
Looking back now, each year withered before half-passed
Then your face appears, knocks me flat, steers me right off track
Oh to be where you are again

So you can have your capital A-merica,
Make hay while the sun shines, and swerve across the dotted line
To meet your maker on a Mack truck,
Seek and find only what's in your mind.
You bless your tunnel vision like you kiss the cross of Francis
And keep your version of the events
Just until your boy repents

And now I lay me down to sleep
And pray the dreams don't repeat
Don't repeat

I can't even look at you, knowing the things that you'd do
Like throwing away my lover,
cast her into the river, you're oh-so-clever
And it's only your arms now, only your arms ever
So what's so big that you've got to land there
And what's so big that you've got to leave

Stay here instead, a four-poster bed
With velvet curtains to shield the sun from us
To shield the sun

Stay a day, maybe a week, beat this out of our systems
If there's something there,
We'd better tear the room apart and find it
If there's something there,
We'd better tear the room apart and find it
If there's something there,
We'd better tear the room apart and find it
Cause every year the stakes get higher as the well gets drier
Every year the stakes get higher
