Evangeline

The next single off our upcoming record Red.

Morning’s wasted on the picture on the wall
that slowly reappears the moments after dawn
Every day I see you looking back at me
at the boy I am and the man I couldn’t be

15 years I swung that hammer
Baby all I had was time
Evangeline, tell me it all was just a dream
You won’t believe what all the time has done to me

The man you loved so long ago’s all torn and faded
and there’s nothing left inside of him not full of hatred
but let’s make the best of what is left

I’m violent and I’m sad
they took the best years that I had
and left an empty shell
they picked off like a scab
I’m a child at 34
mopping up some liquor store
lying awake at night
afraid of dying alone

15 years I swung that hammer
Baby all I had was time
Evangeline, tell me it all was just a dream
You won’t believe what all the time has done to me

That afternoon you married me in that grove of pine trees
in my darkest hours that memory was all that saved me
so let’s make the best of what is left

Evangeline, tell me it all was just a dream
You won’t believe what all the time has done to me

If you’ve moved along I’d never think you less a person
but your heart still has a place for me of that I’m certain
so let’s make the best of what is left
