about

I chose to write about faith, and realizing that I sometimes miss having a god to fall back on.

lyrics

he sat in the back seat
comic book in his hand
they were driving the back roads out of town

when the brakes gave out
he failed to understand
so shocked he couldn't even hear the sound

of the crash that took his breath away

we all need to lay our burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrinsic wish we can hold on to
and he had you

she stood at the door
his death grip on her hand
they were locked eyes in a stare down

when her heart gave out
she failed to understand
how she'd so quickly come to lose what she'd found

and the thought, it took her breath away

we all need to lay our burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrinsic wish we can hold on to
and she had you

I stood and stared at the servant's cup
i left all those stories bound up

when i stopped drinking
the reason took my breath away

I need to lay my burdens upon
a stable word to act on
an intrisic wish I can hold on to
it just can't be you
