      name your price



it comes over you every once in a little while
that things that set your apart are the things that make you unkind
we'd made promises about the people we'd mean to be
but every shot took a drink, and every turn turned to repeat

it was the best you ever were at the start of things
with our shirts hanging on the line, when the smell of grace passed for wine
the light ran down your spine on a blanket with braided hair
i don't remember the knowing going or how already got there

we'll meet out front after you settle in
when the smoke clears from the summer and the middle we've floated into doesn't seem so strange, doesn't seem so strange

shook off the tough shakes and crossed the bad lakes that keep me separate from where i was
you could have written the same story if you had broken off when i was done
you let the ice melt in your drink to good parts of the joke
that part happens to everyone and revisits where we had begun

we'll count our years from the lights behind the bar
take comfort in that where you went is not that far and doesn't seem so strange, doesn't seem so strange

everything worth telling doesn't have to come out just now
all those people that you were in between those folded pages, brought us back to this town
just take me home and say "you could always settle down"
in the bad days of june when the corners of my mind don't seem so strange, doesn't seem so strange
