She's never on time, she must be mine.
I waited for days and she never replied.

When she comes around, she hardly makes a sound.
She's right back out the door before I can turn around.

Her semblance great, she needs no name.
I've seen her shadow in the shade.
A familiar form without a shape.

Loud is her sound but never a word she said
She says it to the rhythm of an empty bed
She says it to the rhythm of the dead.

When she finally stays the few words she will say,
She says "Come a little closer and Ill take you further away".

I went to grab a shovel, I left to dig a hole.
I dug myself a bed right next to her home.

The music we would play, I leave it on all day.
We liked to listen to the blues, especially Skip James.

I've tried to move on, I've travelled all around.
Its when I try to settle down thats when she starts to make her sound.

Her form is like an ocean wave.
The more the change the more of the same.
A familiar voice without a face.

Loud is her sound but never a word she said.
She says it through the cold of an empty bed
She says it to the rhythm of the dead.

Well I cant let you go, all I've got are these little black bones,
Put them all together, what a beautiful pose.

Well I cant let you down, I can see that you still come around,
Im jumping at shadows, and i'm coming down hard.

Piacular dreams, how they sound so sweet,
Hell I know your mother don't care for me,
but its alright, Its no surprise to see...

one bone down and she'll blow my cover.
Backslider, Im crawling through the briar
on my hands and knees, for any little thing she might need.

Yes in one ear and out of the other,
thats just my one track mind
and its there you will find, every missing piece you don't see.
