Lyrics by Sarah Lynn Fisher, Music by Sarah Lynn Fisher and YAB

lyrics

there goes that train
bringing coal from the mines now
the whistle always seems louder
when you're not around
it echoes deep
in the spaces you left behind
it's just as if you're a ghost here
when you're still alive

the clock in the hallway
hasn't worked in a year now
it just hangs like a statue
not telling the time
and that sugar maple tree
that grew in the side yard
well it never came back from
the winter this spring

for millions of years
things that die in this valley
become something so precious
when they're buried so deep
I remember
when you and I were so happy
but then the pressure upon us
turned our hearts to stone

you came back from Morgantown
with dust in your pockets
lipstick on your collar
and smoke in your hair
and I turned my face away
pretending to sleep so
you wouldn't see if
I started to cry

I never thought
I could lie here beside you
and not think of a single
word I could say
it isn't love
that keeps us together
I think it's just that you'd miss me
if I went away

I try to tell myself
walk away while you can girl
but every time that I see you
my heart won't let go
my friend gave me some pills
that help me to sleep so
when breathing should hurt me
I don't feel a thing
