lyrics

we both looked our best in the windswept west
we were younger
neither death nor bottle of wine could tame our souls
you never slow down when you're filled with the hunger
but love won't stick if you're always letting go

if the memory starts to fade light a candle
it's ok to howl at a crescent moon
when that shifty old love was more than you could handle
it's ok to sleep through the afternoon

the weather turns again
and the sun calms her down
and the stars reveal no curse
for stones don't throw themselves

all of us got our own bones to bury
no one has ever walked a perfect line
we're mining for coal and working without a canary
and all I want, babe, is your little hand in mine

and the weather turns again
and the sun calms her down
and the stars reveal no curse
for stones don't throw themselves
you're everything you say
you're everything you do
if the weather turns again
I'll be coming back to you
