Jesus Wept

Album: One True Vine (2013)
  • My throat quits when I try to say
    How I long for the day
    How I wish there was a way
    I could see you again

    I wither next to my thorns
    I thread my tongue through the horn
    Arm in arm we are born
    Arm in arm to the end

    Side streets I have worn
    Through late summer storms
    I should have told you
    I could live without you
    But I don't want to

    My heart lifts when I sing
    The joy I can bring
    Doesn't mean a thing
    I want to see you again

    I wither next to my thorns
    I thread my tongue through the horn
    Arm in arm in arm we are born
    Arm in arm to the end

    Side streets I have worn
    Through late summer storms
    I should have told you
    I could live without you
    But I don't want to

    My throat quits when I try to say
    How I long for the day
    How I wish there was a way
    To see you again

    Side streets I have worn
    Through late summer storms
    I should have told you
    I could live without you
    But I don't want to
    But I don't want to
    Oh I don't want to Writer/s: JEFFREY SCOT TWEEDY
