lyrics

Our last farewell resigned itself
To a mannequin embrace,
As guarded as our footsteps in the snow.
It's harder than I thought it'd be
to turn and walk away,
And it's sweeter than it ought to be to go.

The backseat's packed With all the things
that you no longer need,
I'll climb in and drive your past away.
It hurts a bit to leave a ship
That's grounded in mid stream,
But in the rising tide, It's suicide to stay.

So tally up the damages,
The balance and the blame,
I'll find a way to pay you what I owe.
It's harder than I thought it'd be
To turn and walk away,
And sweeter than it ought to be to go.

about

Dan Cray Massachusetts

...flows from one beautiful, unsettling melody to the next, sometimes contemplative, at others softly abrasive. American Music Club, Pavement, Miracle Legion and Yo La Tengo come to mind.
