​Everlasting Light

This song is by Dry The River and appears on the album Alarms In The Heart (2014).

I was lying on the floor of the playground
You were chasing off a kid with a greyhound
I remember thinking you're the coolest girl I know
You were swinging from the seating rafters
It fell around you in a halo of plaster
I don't go to hospitals, I let you go alone

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind
Oh, everlasting light
Why's your father always calling me out, yeah
There's a saying in the English South
"You have to put your mind in gear before you drive your mouth"

I got to thinking of gin in the wood bar
I found the powder in the funeral house
I know that blessed conjugal, I could not be alone
I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind
Oh, everlasting light

I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons at the time
Something in the state of mind
I had my reasons at the time
I had my reasons, yeah
Something in the state of mind
Oh, everlasting light
