Oh my hands move slowly like the hands of time
Old and tired are these hands of mine
Chewed and bitten, no the nails aren’t clean
Stiff and twisted from a mad machine

Oh my heart is heavy and my heart gets sore
Nearly breaking when you knock on my door
My head is telling me you lost your chance
But my heart won’t listen to my common sense

How I feel about you, It burns down deep in my soul
Gonna walk beside you, And help wherever you go
If it hurts to hold you, My god, then let it be so
What it takes to love you
My hands can’t do it, my heart can’t do it alone

You say you’re sorry and you’re gonna change
My bones grow weary of the running game
Oh my back is bending and my spine grows weak
My mind says leave you but my mouth won’t speak


from Hang Me Out to Dry, released February 17, 2020
