From the recording Jack Pine and The Fire
Track #5 - The slow song [aka The breakup song]
Well I've been walkin this line for a month and a year,
And I can not say that I've felt worse.
And you just keep crossin right past and then comin back bent
And your hands gettin bruised from bangin my door
So I say...
Keep a knocking but you can't come in
It's true. we've come and we've gone and our tenderest song is a roll in the hay
But now the love that I'm givin ain't comin back
And through our screams and our whispers it's this thats rang true
There's a time. There's a time and it's more than near
So keep a knockin but you can't come in
By now, I've sifted the sand and I've said all I will
So tonight. I sleep. Alone.
And though I've muffled your cries with the pillow on my frown.
I still hear the words 'i love you' seep through my door
Tell me you love me but you can't come in
Keep a knockin' but you can't come in.
