lucy wainwright roche – a quiet line lyrics

Loading...

what can i say
did i steal you away
from a life that you thought you would lead?
all days can be strange
but then august is dangerous
handing your heart to the heat
a quiet line
i hope you can love me a long time
i hope you can see me through
i find the light in your eyes to be bright
it started out west
in some mountain state test
that i carried back east in my bag
and then on to you
and the next thing i knew
my city had more than it had
“one day
nothing without providence,”
they’d sing
i hope you can love me a long way
from home
because that’s where i’ll be
and here’s to downtown
when there’s no one around
in the saddest of bars on the block
we’re changing the game
never the same
you can’t argue with this little clock
and you said you were fine
but the ship is betrayed
by its ensign
a good distance away it will still shine
and wave in the wind to be seen
place me here in this minute
of “let’s see”
i hope you can love who i might be
i hope that the summer will last
a quiet line
i hope you can love me a long time
i hope you can see me through
i find the light in your eyes to be bright
