lyrics

only looking just ahead
for however many miles
back and forth and back again
it's turning into quite awhile

so don't kill me just yet
i've got a heart in my hand
holding on tight
it's a pretty good bet
and you could say just wait
about a year or two
well i don't give a fuck man
it's what i'm gonna do
i don't know just how
but i only care about
holding on to this thing that i found

faithless shaky hands
grabbing out at everything
faithless shaky hands
a desperate and shaking man
can't hold on to anything

carrying a rock around
it's weighing heavy on my chest
alleviated by a choice
and i know i know what's best

so don't kill me just yet
i've got a heart in my hand
holding on tight
it's a pretty good bet
and you could say just wait
about a year or two
well i don't give a fuck man
it's what i'm gonna do
i don't know just how
but i only care about
holding on to this thing that i found

faithless shaky hands
grabbing out at everything
faithless shaky hands
a desperate and shaking man
can't hold on to anything

now i know
now i'm sure
i nestled in and found this life
and there
love shook my body
like a devastation

there love howled and shook
howled like her eyes in the pictures i took
there love howled and shook
howled like her eyes in the pictures i took
in the pictures i took

acting on a sober heart
but my head's been drunk as fuck
