Common Holly – Joshua Snakes Lyrics

Joshua Snakes by Common Holly


You’re like a hot super villain
At the top of your game
I’ve tried collecting all the evidence
To give you the blame

Making footprints round the railroad
Laying thick the gasoline
I am tied against the tracks but I can’t figure out the ending

What will it take to say it’s over?
When what I want’s to rest my head upon your shoulder
What will it take to say I don’t think a rescue is in order?

You’re like a snake in the middle
Of a regular day 
There was that time I tried to catch it
But it slithered away

The puzzle piece that’s been in hiding
On the east of the street,
I want to figure out the picture without spoiling the ending

What will it take to say it’s over?
When what I want’s to rest my head upon your shoulder
What will it take to see the pacing is making me older?

I’ve memorized the shapes in your little window
I’ve compromised my eyes from my little window
