Even Still - Band of Horses

Jesus babe
Can't you hear me crying?
Ain't it enough
Alone in the night
And it don't matter what you've done
I just want my life back
For a while
Is it too much to ask?

The bookmarks page sittin' out in the room
And altars of candles casting shadows on you
You see the bed in the dark
Well I could just sleep
I could just sleep

And hear me babe
When I don't wanna say it
Seein' through
I'm back home and stayin'
I can't be alone anymore
And I don't blame you
Or pretend to know
The right thing to do

Late afternoon and the knocks on the door
A fist through the wall
Wipe the blood off the floor
And I can see in the dark
Even still
I can see in the dark

Even still

Well I waited for you
All the thoughts twist around
The visions of you get lost
In the clouds
What now?

Look, Jesus babe
Can't you hear me crying?
Ain't that enough
Alone in the night
I don't care what you've done
I just want my life back
For now

Late afternoon and the locks on the door
A ship through the fog
Sweep the mess from the floor
I can see the bed in the dark
But I could just leave
I could just leave
