lyrics

The Powers is in My Name
Cordelia, please bring us back some heat and some water we can drink, this poison is in our veins. Give us air, and room to breathe, and I'll fix this up but that never works. Four different checks to pay the rent. Three different jobs I’m amazed I ain’t got one yet. I can only count on two to drive me home. I went downtown find something better for me, and then went home because I lost interest. We fall in life, just like the first time. Thought we'd tell our friends. Forgot these good times would just fall in line like the last time. Your heart will mend through all these run on sentences. I took a walk after dark, fought hunger pains and slept a while at the park. Through chattering teeth I curse the cold. I dreamt I was with someone I wish I could be and then awoke to rolling thunder. Cordelia, please give me piece of mind so I can fall back asleep and act like I never cared. Cordelia, I left the lights on, so I could stumble home but I never did. All the above of fear and love. If I wasn’t here I would probably still be fucking up. Finally a place that I call home. A migraine that won’t let up or ever cease, I slept it off and awoke with interest. We fall in love, just like the first time. Thought we'd tell our friends. Forgot these good times would just fall in line just like the last time. Your broken heart will mend through all these run on sentences.
