lyrics

These bodies belong in a tangle of sense
an angle of shame a whiff of innocence
I kissed you at dawn you kissed me right back
and we waited for the sun to show
 
you made a bad joke, sounded just like my dad
but looked like a kid in a big winter hat
and waited impatient for traffic to pass
said goodbye and stepped into the road
 
what answers are found in the roads we go down?
what secrets do latitudes hold?
no matter how tightly i hold on to you
we're all at these outposts alone
 
my deal came undone
my roots came all up
with connections asunder and friends far away
you wrote me a letter i didn't write back
i was too full of something to say
 
yesterdays prayers sit in this mornings trees
they squabble like crows that won't ever know peace
until suddenly risen as one they are gone
lifted like a black cloud to the sky
 
what answers are found in the roads we go down?
what secrets do latitudes hold?
no matter how tightly I hold onto you
we're all at these outposts alone
 
Hallelujah I sing
Hallelujah I bring
Words are so hard to say and so easy to mean
 
inclement mix on an off beaten path
i kissed you at dawn but you pulled away
and its really alright and its rarely ok
fix your eyes up ahead and move on
 
what answers are found in the roads we go down?
what secrets do latitudes hold?
no matter how tightly I hold onto you
we're all at these outposts alone
