    You own this


See through the shine of city girls


Resting my gaze on every face
building a mask out of pretty eyes
and I have to keep it on
'cause I'm going blind

Read the writing on the wall
Wind the winter back to fall

See through the shine of city girls
islands of perfume and painted doubts
and I'll let you be this young
'cause I'm older now

Everyday citizens, please
don't try to pacify me
I'm sober enough for driving
and liquored enough to lie

And I have to keep this up

Sign your name right under mine
though it's dark and boiling hot
there's a cloud with silver lines
we're the only thing we got


from The Roxburghe Ballads, released October 24, 2007
