Salt and Misery Lyrics

 

KismetOldMan

Stare down at a lonely stream
Stare down at a lonely stream
All I want is to end this need
All I want is to end this

Everything’s so lost and faded
Never meant to feel so hurt and jaded
The story loops and has no end
I’ve tried to make my amends
It’s the story that has no other end

And I could haunt this trail forever
One step, I’ll end this misery
The rustling leaves sound like a chorus
This path which ends my symphony
Ends my symphony

Young hope fades into a dream
Young hope fades into a dream
Memories hold no joy for me
Memories fade like this stream

I never meant to feel this way
Each day ends so cold and gray
The story loops and has no end
I’ve tried to make my amends
It’s the story that has no happy end


Opechee Bay

Sunrise breaks and two lovers make
A solemn promise to never fade away
Midday bakes two buddies take
The last two beers and jump into the lake
 
He walks alone, he sleeps alone
He’s having conversations with
Friends he doesn’t have
He sits at home, he eats at home
He keeps the good thoughts on
To keep the dark away

Sunset fades away, another wasted day
Lives go on together, aged skin like weather
Moonlight shines, lovers pine
Life’s not paused for grey, as he waits his days away


Hold

Some say they like it that you’re such a tease
They walk up to you and beg, oh pretty please
They don’t know you, don’t know you like I can
Just want to party, don’t want to hold your hand

And when it’s quiet, do you think that I can be the one
That you call, when you’re down
That you call, when you’re down and out
That you call, when you’re down
That you call, when you’re feeling low
and need someone to hold

It’s such a longing, I don’t know what to say
Without sounding contrived, like I just want to get laid
I’ll leave that to them, I’ll wait my turn
Here in my heart a candle for you burns

And when it’s quiet, do you think that I can be the one


Give

Tell me what to be, puppet on your strings
I’ll do anything, put it all on me

Put it all on me, what am I to say
Don’t throw it all away, put it all on me

Are you out to sea, caught up on a wave
Salt and misery, put it all on me

Put it all on me, what am I to say
Don’t throw it all away, put it all on me

Are you up a tree, slung out on a branch
Tell me what you see, put it all on me

Put it all on me, what am I to say
Don’t throw it all away, put it all on me

 

 


Going Home

Why? Why do you come here?
Why? Do you like to taunt me?
Why? Why do you stand there?
Waiting, for me to fall
 
And if you leave
Have the decency to leave for me
 
Say, say it’s the last time
Say, you meant those words
Say, there was a something
Something, that could have been real
 
And if you breathe
Have the decency to breathe for me
 
Don’t go home (breathe for me)
Don’t go away
 
Sink, sink with the last ones
Drink, drink yourself dry
Think, think of the lost ones
Shrink into your shame
 
And if you stay
Have the decency to stay away
 
Going home
Going home you say
Going home
I always thought you’d stay
Going home
Going home
