lyrics

The leaves are changing colors, you haven't spoken to your brothers
Since your head was full of hair
And they're aching for your letters, but by now they know better
Than to think that you still care

And your sister had her baby, she believed that maybe
His soft eyes would draw you near
And she named him after you, but you haven't got a clue
'Cause all your mind's full of chaos and your belly's full of beer

You're headed to the coast, but what you need most
Sits a five minute walk away
And she's making you throne, she's giving a home
But you can't find the words to say

I love you to your father, you don't even bother
To wonder how long he has left
And when one day when he's gone, when yousee where it went wrong
And no gold can buy that old regret

And you will share her bed tonight and watch her as she fights
The monsters that you've planted in her mind
Your cigarettes are on her deck, soft bruises on her neck
And baby, that is all you've left behind
