lyrics

Hannah, hold on
your sister’s sleepin in the back seat
we’re just this side of Las Cruces, you musta passed out just before we passed Abilene
there’s a bottle of wine on the floorboards,
and another cigar in the glovebox,
grab my lighter outta my pocket, honey, I need both hands & we need a talk
now in all the years I have known ya,
I have never asked a lot
never asked about the scars or why you left or your mother’s maiden name or who took the first shot
but it’s a constant reminder,
just like a softpack of unfiltered reservation cigarettes bloodshot eyes in the mornin’ & the swallows buildin’ nests under the eaves
it’s not a matter of whether or not it’s easy
It’s a matter of not havin’ a choice
it’s a matter of how you define dyin’ & how you choose to leave
cuz there’s always bibles in motel nightstands
& there’s always lightnin’ in July
& they say everything rhymes for a reason but whoever said that don’t speak Spanish & they probly ain’t alive anymore anyway
so Hannah hold on... Hannah hold on... gimme the keys, honey,
