lifeblood: songs: lyrics: fill it up again


won't have you see me as your sad sack
lost my something and i can't get it back
or a kill on your trophy rack
i checked my schedule now my train is rolling down a track

past the sadness of the salt flats
to the prospect of the land fat
or just a lazy orange house cat
on the sofa where i'll be put up

you've been the hole in my sky
you're my shrinking water supply
before my well runs dry
i'm going round round round the bend
fill it up again

i'd like to say that it was clear to me
love triangle geometry
but in the end it's still a mystery
the placement of affection and the disarray

i gathered up the courage that it took
made that bed i took one last look
and you could hear the pages flapping
(you could hear them flapping)
in the wind blown book of my days
(in the wind)
my days

you've been the hole in my sky
you're my shrinking water supply
before my well runs dry
i'm going round round round the bend
fill it up again

one tank gone
seconds thought are on my mind
what's this trip
gonna cost me this time
the devil i know
is starting to look awfully kind
but the new road is an old friend
i fill it up again

(hole in)
(my sky)
(my sky)
(my sky)
hole in
my sky
my sky
my sky
hole in
my sky
my sky
(my sky)
you've been the hole in my sky
(hole in my sky)
you're my shrinking water supply
(shrinking water supply)
before my well runs dry
you've been the hole in my sky
(i'm going round round round the bend)
you're my shrinking water supply
(to fill it up)
before my well runs dry
(before well runs dry)
before my well runs dry
(well runs dry)
i'm going round round round the bend
fill it up again
