lyrics

Knots in Wood

Like knots in wood the hardest part of knowing you is cutting through
And wish to know you as I might, I’ve set the course to throw the fight

Like leaves that grow upon the tree, they whisper that they’re mostly free
But freedom there can barely be, when she sees you and you see me

Like water flowing down below, to depths one person cannot know
The breath I’m holding I let go, it pulls us in the undertow

Like earth that lays below our feet, at once abundant and discreet
I cannot quell my heart’s desire, to blow the bellows, stoke the fire

I told you that I would not, told you that I could not
I told you that I would not, be your alibi

You put me in a corner, I could not leave to warn her
You put me in a corner, to be your alibi

You may have had a way with words, but she has run away with hers
Her promise was at best skin-deep, one she did not intend to keep

Like water flowing down below, to depths one person cannot know
The breath I’m holding I let go, it pulls us in the undertow
