The Rural Alberta Advantage – Barnes’ Yard lyrics

Oh let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the light
Your father's on his way back home from site
Your mother's in the kitchen batting her eyelash
She would never want to be the one to despise
And our heartbeats stop as we plunge through the ice
We're broken down lovers at the side of the road
We're broken down lovers in the city of oil
There's nothing going wrong in your empty home
There's nothing going wrong and we'll leave it alone
Let's slip under the covers just to save our lives
And our heartbeats stop as we plunge through the ice

Triple up your socks to dodge the frostbite
Cutting through Barnes' Yard hip deep in the night
Rough and tumble lovers underneath the covers tonight
I was holding onto you and you were holding me tight
Nothing's going wrong and nothing's ever going

Oh let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight

Nothing's going wrong and there's nothing ever holding us down
Nothing's going wrong and no one's ever holding us down
Your parents, they say there's beautiful things in this old place
Your parents. they say there's beautiful things in this cold place
Now your parents say there's nothing for us in this old place
Don't leave me to stay and dream of how you're growing

Oh let's lie down for another night
I'll hold you close under these skies
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
Your brother's in the basement doing hot knives
We struggle to tear ourselves apart in the night
And there's nothing going wrong in the city tonight
