lyrics

Hold out
Can you feel it coming
It’s cold out
I can feel it coming
The way this will go is only what I know
So step on up to the promised land

Hold on
I can see it coming
I’m not sold on what he’s pitching
But I know we both see it coming

But fear not friend
There is no end
So step on up to the promised land
I’ll follow through
I promise, man

I pass the years gluing splinters to floorboards
For our home
I cannot say what makes me stay
But his bellowed laugh has its way with me

I love her
My dearest mother
But when he looks at me I could give up
I could give in and become her

I am a doe
Further into the woods I go
Out of fear I guess
But I don’t know
‘Cause I like the woods
And I like this show

I’ve wished upon him rain
And I have wished upon him silver
If playing stems the pain
Then as children we think clearer
Think clearer

All the little things about him
All the little things
Spotted eyes and skinny thighs
He stole me first but that belies the point

Hold out
Can you feel it coming
It’s so damn cold out
But I know you see it coming too
But fear not friend
This is not the end
