Needle And Thread

It’s not the last part of our story
there’ll be more before the end
We will write on some more pages
until they’re yellowed, torn and frayed

Strike that good-bye from your lips
leave your mantle at the door
Please take off your walking shoes
You have to tell me so much more

I know you’re tired
won’t you let that weight down tonight?
I can see you’re broken
let me tend your wounds for a while

Needle and thread keeps you together
you are slowly wearing thin
There’s no need to walk on sore feet
no need to go back to where you’ve been

Thaw the ice within your tongue
and spill your words into my hands
Take the courage to let me see
what you don’t want yourself to be

I know you’re tired
won’t you let that weight down tonight?
I can see you’re broken
let me tend your wounds for a while

We’re not on the run
we can take all the time we like
I promise you are safe,
let your weight down for tonight.
