from CACTUS CROWN by Dakota Slim



It’s only when I’ve lost that I’ve found you
Tangled in rope that now binds me to you
I can feel that you’ve gone down this hole
And when I’m feeling like I hold
How I keep me on the runaround

Well life keeps me glowing
I forget the past
And I make it up as a go along
From everyone, I keep me out and dazed
I won’t get caught in the lungs I want to breath
When I’m six feet tall
You will know when I’m on my knees

We must never sever the tether

I want to love
To keep me honest
Down with the left
Down with the right
Never alone
And how I keep me running
I keep me young
And I sigh
When you left me alone

It’s only when I’ve lost that I’ve found you
Chained to the hue of the new moon
I summon severed arms
I cast out the charms to tether and unbind you
Never sever the tether

We drift and sway
As the earth rotates
Though the rope’s now frayed
Pull it tot to give it length
But never sever the tether
