Numbers & Letters

lyrics

on the tail
on the cusp of pulling through
these endless days
with their routines and aching tunes
I saw an angel
I still remember what she said

to err is human
forgive forget forgive divine
and we stand our ground
we won't let our rolling hills unwind
its an upward battle
but it kind'a makes you feel alive

for those who alter
who blow hot air at heavy times
who answer questions
with fickle hearts and fickle minds
a small taste of honey
for growing pains and thinning lips

the angel left me
with knowing eyes for a knowing face
we're Numbers and Letters
we're diming bulbs to be replaced
we wont change our plans
cause we'll never make them

But these day are ours
we'll do what we want to
swim with the sharks
and fill our mouths with water
pick up the cans
and stand them up just to shot them down
this worlds second hand
and we'll bite the palm that feeds it

I turned a corner
turned a phrase and paid my debts
then I saw the angel
get as drunk as she could get
talking in toungs
I still remember what she said

when your romancing
and acting younger than your tounge
there will be second chances
a crown of thorns and bleeding thumbs
when shadows thicken
its hard to see what's left behind
