Lyrics

And lover, where'd you lose your patience?
I know you had your patience
And I was just a kid.

And clueless, you'd never stop to wonder
If lightning strikes the thunder
Or if it's just coincidence.

Every time your father beat you down
You told him, "Dad it wont be long,"
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong.

And hated,
Your bedroom is a dark place,
But you've broken all the doorways
And now you're stuck inside.

But hopeful,
Your memory's still around though,
You can see it from your window
As it starts to pass you by.

Now I'm in your car, you hold your apples in your arms.
You're a friend I used to know, but you still lean against my walls.
Tell me beauty I won't bluff, I set my mind to worthless stuff.
But I was hoping you'd have the decadence, the appetite of love.
But that's alright,
Yeah that's alright.

Every time your father beat you down
You told him, "Dad it wont be long,"
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong.

And when you came to me, and said, "We gotta leave"
And so we took your parents' car,
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong.

And when we got away, but in a couple days
We crashed in Arkansas,
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong.

And when the cop cars came and took you away
I knew I had to write this song,
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong.
