lyrics

Shut the world outside and bar the door
Count the creaks of all the weight you bore
All the things that you were hoping for in your life

You say you’re lost well maybe I’d agree
If you’re the lock then baby I’m the key
Find a place where they can bury me on my side

‘Cause I sold my soul to the rag and bone on the way
All the loving that you had and put into play
And I could lie to you with all my might every day
My love, my love, my love

An empty feeling when you’re leaving home
The wind and rain that cut you to the bone
A hollow whistle down the telephone in your mind

You say you’re holding what you had before
You hear the dead a-knockin’ on the floor
Who would you be if you pulled out that thorn in your side?

‘Cause I sold my soul to the rag and bone on the way
All the loving that you had and threw it away
And I could lie to you with all my might every day
My love, my love, my love
