Tigers Jaw – Hesitation Lyrics

Hesitation Lyrics – Tigers Jaw

You hollowed me out in 90 mile increments
I’m driving dead end streets
And you’re mad they don’t keep going
Well why do we keep going anyway?

The Verrazano and headaches all the time
I swear the air is poison
Where is the oxygen
A thousand bright lights obscuring my vision

Strip away the paint and begin and begin again
I am not the one you were hiding with
A blue rose can’t be mistaken
I can hear your hesitation
In your voice
Now I can’t get it out of my head
Weighing down and dragging under, heavy and permanent

You hollowed me out if only for the loneliness
Controlling all your stories
And I’m getting lost in all the details
A chameleon with new colors every time

Strip away the paint and begin and begin again
I am not the one you were hiding with
A blue rose can’t be mistaken
I can hear your hesitation
In your voice
Now I can’t get it out of my head
Weighing down and dragging under, heavy with hesitation

Driving home
With red and orange trees
And no ones in the front seat
