lyrics

So strange how quickly it changes
One slip turns into a landslide
One moment she’s golden, radiant
Now she’s just red-eyed & tongue-tied
She had it all
Now she’s fading fast with the sundown
You’re still talking in circles
Leading her round & around

She just needs
Some little sign, one tiny explanation
Counting the steps
Breathe a little deeper, mouth the incantation

Are you through?
So low, enough is enough now
Are you through?
You just laugh & wait for the breakdown

Under a deadwood canopy
Watch the final embers of a bonfire
She braves her way through the darkness
Just to tangle up in the tripwire
She keeps on
Fight through & slowly coming unwound
But you keep wrapping her in circles
Tightening round & around

She just needs
Some little sign, one tiny explanation
Counting the steps
Breathe a little deeper, mouth the incantation

Are you through?
So low, enough is enough now
Are you through?
You just laugh & wait for the breakdown

Don't you know, don't you see?
What you do to her you do to me

Late fall she’s lost on the backroads
Still chasing lights in the nighttime
She’s just searching for a way out
Each curve reveals another landmine
She’ll find a way
You can’t just keep her in the background
She’s had a glimpse & now she’s ready
She’s coming around & around

She just needs
Some little sign, one tiny explanation
Counting the steps
Breathe a little deeper, mouth the incantation

Are you through?
So low, enough is enough now
Are you through?
You just laugh & wait for the breakdown
