lyrics

I knew I'd find you here in the evening
The glow of the halo over town's so deceiving
My head is a highway of ghosts
And they've come to the surface to coast
Thoughts flow from ear-to-ear in the darkness
But regardless
I'll keep my tongue harnessed
'Cause my memory is a cage
And the creature inside it longs for escape

In the shadows of our youth our lips depart
When you take me then it's understood
That in the autumn moon we'll play our parts
Then you lift me and you cut me loose

Trembling hand draped around your shoulder
Now we're older but not an inch bolder
And my memory is a cage
Then we fall and we laugh like the angels
We collapse in the purest of angles
I wanna live in the moment for once
I wanna make with the cracks in the rust

In the shadows of our youth our lips depart
When you take me then it's understood
That in the autumn moon we'll play our parts
Then you lift me and you cut me loose

Surrendered to the stars we close our eyes
And seal them with a kiss goodbye
It's a lifetime
It's a lifetime
I've waited a lifetime

In the shadows of our youth our lips depart
When you take me then it's understood
That in the autumn moon we'll play our parts
Then you lift me and you cut me loose
In the shadows of our youth our lips depart
When you take me then it's understood
That in the autumn moon we'll play our parts
That in the autumn moon we'll play our parts

Elmer and the Ceramic Trees Janesville, Wisconsin
