Lyrics

Crooked heart
Arrest my bones
May the dying embers follow

Am I a wicked letter
Or just a bleeding hand
Trapped inside the station
A devil or a lamb
And the comfort that you offered
But never gave away
Slipped into the courtyard
And ran off with the rain
Well I know I heard you whisper
But I never heard you sing
Is it memory that am lacking
Or did they both just sound the same

Crooked heart
Arrest my bones
May the dying embers follow

There's a street down by the harbor
The signs been gone for years
I've slept there for some time now
On a bed of souvenirs
You can never see the stars there
But I know just where they are
Trapped behind the buildings
And the smoke of aging cars
Have you ever seen a footprint
Muddy in the snow
And wondered what was coming
Knowing it was yours

Crooked heart
Arrest my bones
May the dying embers follow

Where was it I was heading
Somewhere beyond the pond
But the tracks were all paved over
By the time I heard you call
So I dreamed you like a willow
Sung for you my song
And when it all was over
I'd hoped you'd sang along
