Weekly Song #16 - Untitled #2

lyrics

"Put the hanger on the door"
Said the trucker to the maid
"Disconnect the phone"
And I don't know how I'm supposed to take these aches
From my belly and my bones all on my own

God is watching from above
With a telescopic lens
While you're out of reach
Waiting for a miracle to come while you're staring down the sun
With your finger on your keys

We can't hold out forever
Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me
We can't hold out together
Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me

In the middle of the night
We were talking on the phone
She couldn't sleep
I was staring at a picture of a man with a rifle in his hand
While I listened to her speak

How long can I delay?
It's a habit I can't break, like saccharin
Staring in the mirror at a man with a future in his hand
While I listened to her speak
She said

We can't hold out forever
Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me
Oh, we can't hold out together
Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me
Something's gotta give and I think it's gonna be me
