dear arthur lyrics – cait brennan

dear arthur
no i don’t mean to be a bother
but every day’s been like a slaughter
since your departure

dear arthur
my mother said she ran like water
to other men who sold and bought her
when you forgot her?

older now—
i’ve been running to you
down at the show
down at the show
but it’s over now
and the lights are goin’ down
down at the show
down at the show

dear arthur
your fiddle p*wned to pay the pusher
she picked your bones just like a vulture
and yet you loved her

dear arthur
know you could never be no farther
but all the pain you have forgotten
will never find you on the ocean
on the ocean
on the ocean – you’re sailing on the ocean
and on the sea you walk on
holy water

older now – i’ve been running to you
down at the show
down at the show
cause it’s over now
and the lights are goin’ down
down at the show
down at the show

older now – are you runnin’ to me
down at the show?
cause it’s over now
and the lights have all gone down
down at the show

dear arthur
dear arthur
dear arthur
play a memory for your daughter
