lyrics

I will hang our bones on high
At the end of the western sky
The stars I picked have all been dead for so long
They don't know if it's right or wrong

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it at all

I will dig you the finest grave
When my hands are old and gray
Don't know where you'll be when it comes time to fill it in
Guess I'll sit and count the holes in my crooked grin
I'm smiling 'cause

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it all

Now I think I'm done singing
All my songs couldn't buy you a ring
I think I know where we can find one after all
Bricked up deep behind some basement wall

They don't know we took it slow
They don't know that we took it all
