lyrics

Katy bar the door, it’s near
Comes the same time every year
Ever creeping in as spring begins
To thaw the icy eaves again

And it’s got a face I know
Perfect for the radio
Leans in awful close, that awful ghost
And drags its heels, hangs off my coat

And whispers of the days
Still to come when all the silver fades to gray
Then fear of ticking time
Takes the place of all the loveliness I find

Came in through the window there
Left open for the morning air
Now it tails me around this Southern town
Echoes the sirens blaring out

That warn of troubled times
When if you lose your dreams then you will lose your mind
About the time you realize
All you ever gained is all you left behind

Keeps me up to nothing good
Not living as I know I could
Should take that northbound line, go back in time
Rebury the bones that will not die

Before there comes a time
When first I lose my way and then I lose my mind
Before I realize
All I ever had is all I left behind

So Katy bar the door, it’s near x3
