lyrics

I fell asleep with the TV on
Soldiers with torches were running up stairs.
Keep the fire lit, keep the light shining —
yelled their captain to the dawn
from the top of the lighthouse —
’til our ships make it home.
All truth is bitter, all truth is bitter
We divide a house in two
half for me half for you.
The blade of a knife set on a table
it’s glare in the sun, a jab
In the unremarkable noon
Would that this cut as clean.
All truth is bitter, all truth is bitter, bitter
and the truth is that she loved me
more than anything else in the world.
Then I lied to the dog;
I’ll be back, I said
and he stayed, good dog.
Cocked his head.
