Week Eleven: Holler When You're Giving It Away

holler when you're giving it away

i heard in your insistence
you were sorry that you came
all that you said was
holler when you're giving it away

the water pouring down
i could hardly see your face
all i could think was
all this rain

holler through all this rain

if you drive to cleveland
be careful what you play
a song is like a house now
holler when you're giving it away

what you could call delusion
they call getting paid
all i could think was
all this rain

holler through all this rain

i was thinking about that painting on your bedroom wall
do you talk about it now with someone else
do you sleep all day and work through the night
half lit and half ashamed of yourself
and sometimes a moment
way down in the morning
like a fluttering
goes close to unfelt
the dirty white wings through the open windows
the birdsongs like wedding bells
holler if you need a little help

the weather in ohio
if you're asking
is the same
the crows are lost inside the clouds
holler when you're giving it away

the country of distraction
the momentary age
all that you got boy
holler when you're giving it away

holler through all this rain
