skeleton key lyrics – banner pilot

half asleep with the sun coming up out east
we’re driving down garfield ave when you said a strange and significant thing
i can remember the words – “this was a beautiful night
it won’t, it won’t ever happen this way again”

no, my dear, nothing much grows around here
we carry our roots with us, a couple of weeds pulled up, misguided
girl, you’ll be the heroine of my book, the plot is the course we took
the setting can’t be nowhere else in the world

and the story opens up with you
your broken dreams and cheap perfume
you’re on a city bus, the rain it falls
your make up bleeds, the wind it howls

and i stumble on from uptown bars
i guess that’s all i’ve got so far
yeah, but at the end, i don’t know how
you save me and then you save yourself

it ends so soon, the night and the fading moon
i put my hand inside yours, the city looks strange and significant
i know these streets, the place where i’ll live and die
resigned to that fact, but i, i’m hoping it happens this way again

no, my dear, nothing much grows around here
we carry our roots with us, a couple of weeds pulled up, misguided
girl, you’ll be the heroine of my book, the plot is the course we took
the setting can’t be nowhere else in the world

and the story opens up with you
your broken dreams and cheap perfume
you’re on a city bus, the rain it falls
your make up bleeds, the wind it howls

and i stumble on from uptown bars
i guess that’s all i’ve got so far
yeah, but at the end, i don’t know how
you save me and then you save yourself

and the story opens up with you
your broken dreams and cheap perfume
you’re on a city bus, the rain it falls
your make up bleeds, the wind it howls

and i stumble on from uptown bars
i guess that’s all i’ve got so far
yeah, but at the end, i don’t know how
you save me and then you save yourself

fall asleep to the radio
try to keep what i got from you
hard to do in these dreary days
