shiola lyrics – murder by death

i steal a look between the blinds
i unwind
she sleeps in comfort in my arms
she is plain but she is mine
our child is silent but awake
i run my hands through his hair
i teach him manners and how to stick up
for himself when things get bad

i tell him son never through the first punch
and if you must fight, make it clean

shiola, shiola, will all be forgiven?
shiola, shiola, am i strong enough to start again alone?

the taste of home is filling up my mouth
is it wrong to love a family of ghost
her door is open the windows are all up
she says “come inside”

i live alone more or less
i summon, child and happiness
build them up from the dirt and clay
i have to believe that all will be forgiven

shiola, shiola, will all be forgiven?
shiola, shiola, am i strong enough to start again alone?
shiola, shiola, my heart is overflowing
shiola, shiola, with love and anger coiled into one
they take and take
but never get their fill
i try and try
but fail against my will
i wait and wait for that hand to sweep me up
and take me down that road
