lyrics

the moonlit gravel driveway
hid a glinting house key
you met her in a shadowed bungalow

you made out on the staircase
glasses clacking faces
a decade later peering down below

pair of hands push on your back
breaking off the branch
rush of wind, crack of black

you had nothing left she needed
so she took your favorite nothing
you shove the rancid story on a shelf

in bitter brine you’re brewing
acidic feelings curdle
you set the bones to mending by yourself

pair of hands push on your back
breaking off the branch
rush of wind, crack of black
breaking off the branch

you raised her high among the leaves
sunning in the elevation of your family tree
that’s your body mangled on the stairs
oh you never saw it coming
you couldn’t see it coming

pair of hands push on your back
breaking off the branch
rush of wind, crack of black
breaking off the branch
