Lyrics

I knew a girl who loved to sing.
She flagged a truck down in the spring,
And moved to Tennessee,
And grew apart from me,
Though I don't think about her much.
Well, that's not true.
She's in the snow, she's the colour blue.
She's all the taps that drip,
The darker vices that pick me up
To hold me under.

Hey now, hey where'd you go?
Find your way back to me, honey,
We'll pretend you missed me so.
Life's a struggle, a bright illusion, a hustle.
Strange through all these harder seasons
You're the one part of this puzzle

That I know by all the curves,
The ragged edges, and broken words.
Remember your guitar?
How you painted it with stars
And called it Consolation?

Hey now, hey where'd you go?
Paint me up and play me, honey,
I'll pretend that I don't know
That life's a struggle, a bright illusion, a hustle.
Tell me through these harder seasons
I'm the best part of this puzzle.

Hey now, hey wherever you been,
Throw your older arms around me,
Maybe we'll be young again.
So I say hey now, hey wherever you go,
Come on back home to me, honey,
We'll pretend you missed me so.
