The Keys

Creeping ..up on me
You’re slappin’ me, breakin’ me, takin’ me down
with your misery
My heart’s pumpin’ and pumpin’ drippin’ sweat
and scared of something
I am runnin’ and runnin’ dodgin’ right
but it keeps coming
and the letters in this message
I guess I can’t read

Talkin’ in our sleep
‘cause when we’re awake we act like
we can’t really see
but then again, I think it’s seen perfectly
my heart and my fate and my everything
is crashing down on me

Breathing…in deep
reminds me of what I have taken for granted
and it’s killing me
but light’s shinin’ and shinin’ ‘round my head and this room’s risin’
to the vibe of the sound of the waves
in which we’re riding
and the letters in this message
are spelled out to me


from We Ain't Never Going Back, released July 25, 2019
