The Lines
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

Oh, I was never any good about keeping it,
Between the lines.
Just never was the careful kind.
And I was never any good about watching where
The players stood or if they moved the way they should

Too many questions haunt the eyes that paint these walls
But they’ve been asked and answered, all
And I was never any good about knowing who
The lions were except for me, except for her

A lonely dance on lonely floors
Broken glass and barred up doors
Shadows keeping time against the light
And I’m not here to learn your name
Hold your hand or play that game
We don’t have time; we don’t have the right
Just two shadows keeping time against the light

Oh I was never any good about layin’ down
Or staying put.
A bitter mind, a restless foot
And I was never any good for anyone
Except for her and you’re not her, no you’re not her

A lonely dance on lonely floors
Broken glass and barred up doors
Shadows keeping time against the light
And I’m not here to learn your name
Hold your hand or play that game
We don’t have time; we don’t have the right
Just two shadows keeping time against the light

Oh, I was never any good about keeping it
Between the lines. Just never was the careful kind
