lyrics

Caught in Amber

You’re lost in the world again
You need to find your north
Stars seem so out of place
The dust you left me for
Eyes turning for a grin
These lies they tell themselves
Slung across these bar room shelves

Pulled into your story
Feeding me your lines
Rewrite the glory of a younger kind
Hold on to your truth
And I’ll hold mine
Caught up in the amber this time

Overcompensate your face
To hide the war that’s done
You built your home
With sticks and stones
Where no moon could be hung
You all brought your daggers here
Dull and in repose
Take a bow
The curtain’s closed

Pulled into your story
Feeding me your lines
Rewrite the glory of a younger kind
Hold on to your truth
And I’ll hold mine
Caught up in the amber this time

All in all we write the pages
Hanging on is how we make it now
