Pianos Become The Teeth – Houses We Die In lyrics

And... I miss home and, I miss the closets the, windows the, hallways And
when we are gone who, will keep up the garden Like?
a mother calling her boy I, am I, am so unsafe But
she can't do it alone But
there's nothing stronger than her prayers Nothing.
stronger than the smell of reds My.
fathers reds Under

bridges waiting to look forward waiting, for rushes ends Living
in the moment is the homeless mantra they, know the busiest streets All
we have all, we have all, we have is letting sleeping dogs lay All
we have all, we have all, we have is letting sleeping dogs lay Your
face lit up and for once I, enjoyed where I was The
truth is jade plants die the, truth is muscles atrophy Softening
your skin and hardening mine "I

don't know where to begin I've
thought about this day so much and thought of so many things I've wanted to say But
now now, I can only look at you like the pictures I spend hours staring at I
don't think I've ever smiled so wide as when you were holding me up I
was given a picture the other day of a past birthday We
were together on our back deck I

remember You.
were covered in powdered sugar from the donuts you were eating I've
always loved watching you smile Do

you remember the mornings when we woke up early to ride bicycles to on the board walk Or
the night before my first homecoming when you taught me how to dance Yes?

I remember I. hope she appreciated all my hard work I

wish I had a different story to tell I
seem I have drifted fairly far away from what you taught me You

were always the I'll

admit there hasn't been much to smile about since since, you left I

didn't leave I, fought for five years to stay at your side What

do you remember about that night I?

remember a family that loved their wife and mother very much How.

can you say that We?
were liars We
clung to those songs like we so desperately wanted to Cling to you Then.

I don't think you heard the same song I did You

had to know I was lying You
had to know how much I hated myself for smiling like a fool For
spending our last few minutes together deceiving you Matthew

your, smile on the face of your (grey) spirit Was
the greatest gift a mother has ever received from her child I

miss you I

know ". Everyone

cares every, eye carelessly tiptoes around you watching, you They'll,
wear black ties and, as they applaud I'll, count claps
