Let Your Hair Fall Down b​/​w These Blues

by The Bye Bye Blackbirds

Last night left some marks on you that I can see With chapped up lips and a bruised up heart set on repeat Grab me by the shaking hands let’s straighten the crooked out And let your hair fall down No one in this town will know our name The sweat dries on your skin and it tastes like rain Shake your dress loose bite my tongue let’s straighten the crooked out And let your hair fall down And if it happens all the time What time is the right time to tell you? Do you recognize a thing you see? We passed this way before but it was in the Spring Seems we’ve died a thousand times to straighten the crooked out So let your hair fall down And it’s about time we go too far far far We're not hiding we're too far far far There’s no coming back from far far far
These Blues 04:00
Roll the sun back to you Cast a spell on all you’ve owned Nothing means much to you Nothing you can’t drink alone So listen before your time Listen to all your lives ‘Cause you’ve spent a fortune in rhyme There’s a river runs there Where there's fog on haunted ground Steel and autumn live there Leaving traces in the ground There’s a letter for you In a mail truck somewhere Some discarded future Sent from here to nowhere These blues Swirling like the snow and then These blues Spinning like the stars and then These blues Breaking all our hearts again These blues
