knots lyrics – lisa hannigan

“knots”

it was early in the morning,
we were sitting on the stoop,
there wheeled away a starling
and i thought that i would too.
oh for all i knew,
i was lost through and through,
in my high heels and my old dress
with my new keys in the wrong city.
i tie the knots to remember in my heart,
so i choke and i sputter to a stop,
i am a borrower and lender of the lot.
i walk away asleep
and chalk an outline round the scene.
this shadow play of whiskey talk,
a heavy denier dream.
oh let it be, i was lost in him and me.
in my high heels and my old dress
with my new keys in the wrong city.
i tie the knots to remember in my heart,
so i choke and i sputter to a stop,
i am a borrower and lender of the lot.
