lyrics

No more calls from Tallahassee to Kansas
You are frozen in twenty-three
I didn't call on your birthday a decade ago
But you exist in the dark, as an afterthought
In the lowest part of me

You whispered your dreams like they were dying words
On the fateful trip to New York
In a stranger's bed with the American Flag
Tied to a need, on your hands and your knees
Like the lines from the devil's joke

I hope you've traded the cards you were dealt
I hope you're looking through rose-colored lens
And who are you now, if not like before?
In those innocent days of a snake and a mouse
Mislead and mistaken for friends

Your hair hangs straight and black
In this photograph of you I keep
You are lost in the light, but like a bullet in flight
Your smile smiles back threatening to get me in my sleep
In my sleep
