Clay

Like a tree - cut in two

and sent to the mill when it's through

like the story of me and you

Cuttin was the easiest part

I’m a cold wind blowing through your coat

a mean squall blowing around your boat

the approaching enemy filling in your moat

 

We’re all made of clay

And molded every day

You can’t just throw away

A painful memory

 

You’re like a 4 engine train moving fast

I’m at the light wondering how this could last

You’re pulling heavy hearts along with your past

the rails are getting hotter

like the fire that consumed your home

And cut us down straight to the bone

we never thought we’d be this alone -

 

We’re all made of clay

And molded every day

You can’t just throw away

 

We've made some changes

all of them too soon

we waxed and waned out of phase

two werewolves under a fool’s moon

 

I take my half of the credit for this mess

I pushed you away to the west

Everyone goes through the test

Everyone makes mistakes

 

We’re all made of clay

And molded every day

With every spring comes May

Whispers that there was once a winter
