lyrics

You were gone
Long before you left
You were gone
Long before you set the bar too high
You were gone
Long before we said our long goodbye

A lullaby will shelter for so long
til the big bad world comes running
Teeth bared, teeth bared
and a basket full of words that hit and hurt
where it bruises worst

I was gone
Long before you thought
I was gone
Long before we were exclusive
I was gone
Long before you hurt me kindly

A lullaby will shelter for so long
til the big bad world comes running
Teeth bared, teeth bared
and a basket full of words that hit and hurt
where it bruises worst
