lyrics

OO THIN

Because it longer nurseth the disease
The uncertain, sickly appetite to please
I'm building you some lead parentheses

Because I do not hope to turn again
Because I do not hope
This ode is but an effort to contain

CHORUS:
And darling, you're not the only one rolling your eyes
I mean, how many eulogies before I let you die?
And your mom's not the only one says I'm too thin
It's just one of the dozen ways I try to be the wind
in the fall around you
like a shawl around you
like walls around you

I sing unceasing undertow
I sing the Romes your tiny, careful hands laid low
I sing with breath too sweet and hot to be my own

Because it keep me up afloat
Because I drown too many heathens in the moat
Because your voice is still the loudest in my throat

CHORUS

In the corner of your room
In the corner of your love
Who laid waste to freely given warmth?

In the corner of your room
In the corner of your love
You sometimes think a thought that isn't yours

Who shook the tree of every single orange?

In the corner of your love
The music's soft but too close not to hear.

In the corner of your room
In the corner of your love
Part of you is not done getting clear

Part of you is not done running, dear.
