​Chalk Outline

This song is by Cast Of Thousands.

Falling in a dream
Back to the time when you found in me
A diamond in the rough worth polishing
Before we hit the road.
That's where I learned
That it's hard to drive with the sunset in your eyes.
Well, you used to shine on me
With tethered warmth that tied you too close.
Now you dip your fingers in
The chalk outline where I fell.
Caught up in the wires
Sending a chilling prophecy
Of a moonless night with a cold wind blowing.
Dragged on a jagged edge.
From ink to blood
The dotted line on which you signed my name.
Well, you used to shine on me
With tethered warmth that tied you too close.
Now you dip your fingers in
The chalk outline where I fell.
You used to shine on me...
Well, you used to shine on me
With tethered warmth that tied you too close.
Now you dip your fingers in
The chalk outline where I fell.
And I couldn't have bought more time
With all the gold in California.
So now I join the ghosts of our journeys in their sleep.
