Walk Along With Me (Two Ropes)

Oh my Oh my,

Wash your blood from my hands.

Take the night off, lover

Return in spring.

I don’t want to touch you now

Cuz I can’t feel a thing.

Right is wrong, without a doubt

I’m buried deep and don’t wanna climb out.

What is wrong with me?

That I can’t catch fire.

Tinder is wet, lay it out in the sun

How did I come

To this?

I’m a child

Kicking tantrums to the stars.

Oh Father, why?

I’m not a poet,

I write to waste time

Until I die.

I was not made for loving

Beauty is only skin deep

But peel that away and we’ll just bleed out.

Take me to a place where dead men speak

hear my Father’s words

Walk along with me.

They tied two ropes,

One for you, one for me

Slung them over

Your Mother’s apple tree

Walking down Old Oak Road

I heard angels cry

Walk along with me

Walking down Dead End Road

I heard devils sigh

Walk along with me

They tied two ropes,

One for you, one for me

Slung them over

Your Mother’s apple tree

Coyotes howl on the wind tonight

The moon shivers like an old dead wight

Don’t light a fire I

Want to see the stars

October sits with his head in his hands

Noble king of a dying land

I’d sell my soul

so summer won’t end

But who would want it anyway?

I’ll fall asleep to lullabies of crows

Never to wake until the devil shows

Your tears flow from the river to the sea

You cry out loud

‘Why won’t they let us be?’

They tied two ropes

One for you, one for me

It’s a long road home

So walk along with me
