Lyrics to

The Story Goes . . . EP

All songs written by Ronnie Carrier

Darling Departed

Am I just an echo

Do I know I must go

Am I a presence at all?

When my, when my voice calls

Will you answer

Or let me echo through the halls?

Oh Oh - Oh Oh Oh Oh

Do you want to fill those spaces?

Will you come close or stay in the clear?

My Darling Departed

I fell for a ghost who tends to disappear

Oh Oh - If I am just a ghost

Do not come when i call

Oh Oh - If I am just a ghost

Do not come when i call

And when one door up and closes

Another opens

Or was that just the wind?

Hiding under the covers

Two distant lovers

They are making pretend.

King of Scum

Give me that eternal sunshine

Give me that spotless mind

Give me anything to forget your name

Like I know you've forgotten mine

Baby I was your puppet

With a string around my neck

Dress me up for the King of Scum

And I danced for him in his bed.

Baby I could take you down

Drag you out in the rain

Throw you to the ground

Kick you around

But you still would not feel my pain.

I choked on the smoke

I was burned by the fire

Coulda kept my distance

Shoulda resisted

Oh and I woulda been wiser

I understand what's going on

I understand what you done

But it doesn't make it easier.

Now I will sit and drink your whiskey

Each shot is sure to do me well

Darlin' I don't care if you miss me

Or at least that what I tell myself

I understand what's going on

I understand what you done

But it doesn't make it easier.

Still

 

With the curtains slightly drawn

Sit back and watch the world go on

Folds your hands behind your head and yawn

Inside you're takin' notes

With something hide but nothin' to show

Vicarious like a window

 

That's fine but I can't sit still

Always wish that I had a little more will

 

Hard to breathe in this old town

The yellow fog risin' up from the ground

So maybe I'll pass by this time around
 

There's a whole bigger world outside

And now I see it through indifferent eyes

And I coulda missed this all if I had lied.

That's okay, it's not your fault

Leave it up to me and I will stall

That's fine but  I can't sit still

It's okay if you've had your fill

Of me.

So will you stay inside

And watch someone else's life go by?

What will you find when you open up your eyes?

That's okay, it's not your fault

Leave it up to me and I will stall

That's fine but  I can't sit still

Always wish that I had a little more Will

That's fine but I can't sit still

It's okay if you've had your fill

Of me.

Little Shit

 

You and me

In an open eyed dream

Little yellow duck wanders along

You and me

Follow his lead

Singing a familiar song

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

Train tracks

They lead two ways

Now I’m starting to see the appeal

Of heading down

A different way

Better end of a hard deal

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

[Bridge]

So let’s go

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them

See them tonight

 

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them tonight

 

 

Now don’t look back

When the world is ahead

Home is where you go when there’s no place left.

So I hunt all night

Then I sleep through the afternoon

Then howl like a wolf at the next full moon

 

Ooo

I hope this dream won’t end

You are my best friend

 

[Bridge]

So let’s go

Somewhere but far from here

Anywhere but here

Just to see the people

Go and see them
See them tonight
