priceless measuring

lyrics

Hush, hush
Baby don’t cry
I’d crawl around legless
Before leaving you behind
Trust, trust
The truth you can’t hide
Not even my arms can hold
The weight of your pride

On the soft banks
Of your god-given flesh
I found something
Priceless
On the soft banks
Of your god-given flesh
I found something
Priceless, priceless

Ain’t no good
Trying to make amends
With a fistful of needles
But not one spool of thread
Ain’t no good
Trying to make amends, oh

Hush, hush
Baby don’t try
To fool me with attempts
At saying goodbye
I can’t trust, trust
That look in your eyes
It’s not nice to play games
With somebody’s life

On the soft banks
Of your god-given flesh
I found something
Priceless
On the soft banks
Of your god-given flesh
I found something
Priceless, priceless

Spurts and bits
Of panicked fits
This distance is liftless
And shiftless, shiftless

Dissipate the space
The hours and shapes
That string together towns and states
Fold up the middles of every map
Rearrange the place
Until we measure nearness
In feet across a bed sheet
