lyrics

These city blocks, this empty room
The stars on the back of your arms,
the envy and the guilt and the charms of youth

I love her the most when she’s feeling good,
Talk of putting money in jars
To hide the fact that I’m growing far from you

Cause you know that I’m Heading East
It’s how it’s gonna have to be
But when the devil comes a knocking well you know I’m not going to answer anymore

Come to grips, you’re growing old
A coffin is a bag for your bones,
But still I hope we’re buried in rows you’d say

The loveless always linger alone
The winter it’ll chill to the bone
But I would rather freeze all alone than stay

Cause you know that I’m heading east
That’s how it’s gonna have to be
You gotta keep your head up straight my love
Cause no one’s gonna see you if you duck and run
You are alone.
But when the devil comes a knocking well you know I’m not gonna answer anymore
