around the bend lyrics – taproot

around the bend

inside i’m free
no need to breathe
the knife cuts a careful arch
intent to leave it’s mark
and through it, i see
around and around the bend
this circle remains an end
around and around the bend
this circle remains a friend
around and around the bend
this cycle remains a test
in the garden she’s scene
captured imagery
buried beneath the ground
still life all around
and through it, i see
around and around the bend
this circle remains an end
around and around the bend
this circle remains a friend
around and around the bend
this cycle remains a test
around and around the bend
this circle remains an end
with a step she closes in on me
like broken gl*ss
a drop of jewelry
with a click she takes my breath away
and holds it for another day
around and around the bend
this circle remains an end
around and around the bend
this circle remains a friend
around and around the bend
this cycle remains a test
around and around the bend
this circle remains an end
below the place i carve and rest
a matchbook sparks a lone address
the fire burns and walks with me
down to contemplation street
