Broken Yolk in Western Sky - Death Cab For Cutie

Broken yolk in western sky
My stomach turned, my mouth went dry
I knew I'd never known fear before
I pressed my palms into the seat
Took one last look at you next to me
I kicked open the sliding door
And I threw myself out on the road
Torn flesh and broken bones
And on the shoulder's patchy grass
I faded into your past

I know it was a cowardly thing to do
And that an explanation is not an excuse
I just want you to understand
That love is only a type of greed
Of equal portions, want and need
And you cannot divorce the two

And I could not sleep at all
With all the rumble strip close calls
In the gravel and scattered trash
I faded into your past

When you think twice
You arrive at the same conclusion
It's bad advice
Only if you use it

Broken yolk in western sky
My stomach turned, my mouth went dry
