lyrics

You played the game
You learned my name
We never blamed but never clicked
Fortunate for you, babe.

So here I am, it's late July
on our last talk you said good bye
Livid still but you wept from time to time

And I smile know you were better off
you love me dear but you take me from my heart

It goes away, it come right back
I feel the change, oh you quit that
overcome by my fear, don't say I told you so
Break free from shame no one to blame,
last night you came along, lucky I was gone
and fortunate for you, babe

And I smile knowing you were better off,
because you love me dear but you take me from my heart.

Carnivals, circuses, fairs, I love them all, and everyone has a ferris wheel and that's where I saw you and two cotton candies,
one in your hand one in hers,
a blur, a jar of twisted words,
a surge an urge to emerge.
And I run swift as you caught a whiff of my perfume and my lips touch yours, my lips touch yours

And I smile knowing you were better off,
you love me dear but you take me from my heart,
oh yes you love me dear but you take me from my heart

Backwater Opera Denton, Texas

"Backwater Opera [is] a group that stitches the sound of bluegrass music into a classical indie-rock tapestry. It's an aesthetic the band [has called] 'Chambergrass'...With songs ranging from sorrowful to blisteringly introspective, and vocal harmonies sweet enough to melt even the harshest capital pacific northwest ice, this band is one to keep in mind and on the playlist." -Eugene Weekly ... more
