Folded Hands




from the 2007 Del Lowell & the SMITHTONES EP CD, Boats Away
(4:20) music and lyrics written and recorded by D.Smith



Hands fold on queue
Some lighted sign on you
Paint and space are cold
Their stares are animal

Take it there
Leave it there

Carry all the weight
Like time, she stays awake
Words alone can't start
The beating of a heart

It takes you there
It leaves you there

You want to tell me
So you look me in the eyes
Then you take your hand away
And you say,
"I don't know"

Then you take your hand away
And you say,
"I don't know"

So I don't know


2007 Smithtone
