lyrics

Dry

Remember those cold times with blankets held each other tight.
The kids had closed their eyes and drifted off into the night, and I,
Could barely hear you breathe, the satin sheets enclosed beneath.
Oh sweet Maria don’t you cry.

The engine block is dead at 6AM key turns again.
A bitter chill persists the heater vents are set to 10, and I,
can barely breathe with these cold bones and rusty diesel smell.
Oh sweet Maria won’t you try.

My lines flushed of water and all that I'm feeling is dry.
Cold, dead, unspoken.
At least I still know that we tried.

Another call comes in at 8AM repeat again.
An empty pocketbook the options now are wearing thin, and I,
Forget to breathe, unpaid receipts within this prison cell.
Oh sweet Maria don’t you cry.
The engine comes alive a simple ride this will allow.
The slowing pulse of all these trials maintains condition now, and I,
Can finally breathe in time enclosed beneath these satin sheets.

My lines flushed of water and all that I'm feeling is dry.
Cold, dead, unspoken.
At least I still know that we tried.
Push back the dirt now.
Close down a limited life.
Cold, dead, unspoken.
At least I still know that we tried.
