Worse & Wise

from Songs For Creeps by Amy Annelle



recorded & mixed by Brian Beattie at the Old Wonder Chamber, Austin, Texas


he came again came to me with a new face
we all thought for sure he was done for
but older all the more worse and wise for the wear
and where have you been all these years?
tell me where have you been all these years?

and from him comes a waterfall of true things
thunderstorms and torn-off bird wings
he knows of my nameless ache
and how it grew to rule me
and how it all fell on deaf and dumb ears
and it'll all fall on deaf and dumb ears

he said,
"darling you are here for a reason
your only hope now is love
and if you let it it will fill the cracks
and spring the traps
that you set in circles 'round
you worn out broken heart"

this road is so lonesome and slow
but you will be set free when you know
you've been had by savage masters
jealousy and anger
don't you see now
love is all that's left?
love is all that's left
