a:only by the night


Stranded in this spooky town,
Stoplights are swaying and the phone lines are down
Floor is crackling cold,
She took my heart, I think she took my soul
With the moon I run,
Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

Driven by the strangle of vein
Showin’ no mercy I do it again
Open up your eyes
You keep on crying, baby I’ll bleed you dry
Skies are blinking at me
I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

And it’s coming closer

You shimmy-shook my boat,
Leavin’ me stranded all in love on my own
Do you think of me?
Where am I now, baby where do I sleep?
Feels so good but I’m old
2000 years of chasing takin’ its toll

And it’s coming closer —– Kings of Leon

Oh she’s only seventeen
Whine whine whine, weep over everything
Bloody Mary breakfast busting up the street
Brothers fighting, when’s the baby gonna sleep
Heaving ship too sails away
Said it’s a culmination of a story and a goodbye session
It’s a tick of our time and the tic in her head that made me feel so strange
So I could call you baby, I could call you, dammit, it’s a one in a million
Oh it’s the rolling of your Spanish tongue that made me wanna stay
