lyrics

Alone again inside a storm
Of stupid thoughts and savage thorns
That sting inside your teary eyes
And break the view of starry skies
That shower down upon your head
Winter comes when the summer sun is dead

Oh, the emptiness of artichokes
Bodies made from frilly folks
Have left you standing on the street
Internal wars that can’t be beat
Intentions of a greater past
Sing through swings and frolic through the grass

And though the liar left her lights off
In the living room to show she isn’t home
You’ll never be abandoned by
The ones who know what it’s like to be alone

Oh, listen to the words I say
Through saddened eyes on Saturdays
The autumn leaves are falling down
And soon they’ll learn to leave this town
So don’t believe the things you say
I know you know you’ll find a friend someday

Oh and the carnivals are spinning still
Carousels and wedding bells
And sirens sounding the the night
They all awake the morning light
So think the thoughts of green not gray
The darkness dies at the dawn of every day

And though the liar left her life inside
The garden full of grass all overgrown
You'll never be abandoned by
The ones who know what it’s like to be alone
