Art of Almost

Album: The Whole Love (2011)
  • No!
    I froze
    I can't be so
    Far away from my wasteland
    I never know when I might
    Hoist the horns with my own hands

    I heard a faint ole
    True love but
    I had other ways to hurt myself
    Like calling
    I could open up my heart
    And fall in and
    I could blame it all on dust
    The art of almost

    I'll hold it up
    I'll shake the grail
    Disobey across the waves
    I'll have all the love I could ever ache
    And I'll leave almost with you
    All of almost

    Art of almost, almost
    Art of almost, almost Writer/s: JEFF TWEEDY
