lyrics

(Lyrics by Emilyn Brodsky, www.emilynbrodsky.net)

You’re taking pleasure in taking prisoners
Is that a dull hum or a muted whisper?
Just listen, it’s not a problem if you miss her.

Time doesn’t tell, but time can tame
After the war what can remain?
The ruin, a faith in the refrain.

I never did believe that leaving’d get you anywhere but gone.
I was wrong.
I never did believe that leaving gets you anywhere but gone.
I was wrong.

You trust your gut and you hold your tongue.
Did you really think we were the only ones?
There’s more where we came from.

I hear sometimes it’s time to take off
When it gets too hard or when your skin won’t stay soft
A draw feels like a loss.

I never did believe that leaving gets you anywhere but gone.
I was wrong.

Please take no prisoners
Take heart, or take me home.
It won’t make a difference
Lose heart or lose control.
I never did believe that leaving gets you anywhere but gone.
I was wrong.
