lyrics

My heart is like a broken cupboard in the kitchen
Not meant to be opened very often, use caution
But from time to time I find I feel young again

Now and then you meet someone worth
Lettin in to the broken cupboard in the kitchen
Where you hid away some photographs
A candle you made for a craft
And a few cigarettes you still have left
You didn't smoke very long but you're frugal so you kept them
For a rainy day when the clouds are grey
And you wish your breath could match the way you're feelin
Like a lazy, hazy, shade of freedom

You sit around your old creaky house
Waiting for that old familiar sound
Of aging hospitality shifting in your bones
It may be the wind but I think it's my toes
Curling underneath me, colder than the floor beneath me
I hope that we can become a fire in the chimney

And Everett and Lilly can grow up in a cabin the woods
And there'll be a shack out back where we can dry herbs
There we'll hang a sign that reads, “Never Enough Thyme,”
Because I once took a drive and saw something I thought you’d like
