David Gregory (feat. Jeremy Casella) - Light & Smoke

from by David Gregory

lyrics

Light and smoke
Painted pictures in my head wrap their hands around my throat
Sing or choke - it's all the same here

Come down hard and break my back
With questions I don't want to ask

Like maybe my father did his best
Maybe there're others who'd attest that
He fell just like the others
The he got back up again
Maybe my pride is all I have
You know that I'm poor in that

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home

Failure sweet
It rises up and clouds my eyes
Then falls burning down my cheek
Pence or pounds
It's all the same

I held this victory in my hands
And watched it fall like grains of sand


Maybe it should should have been the fall
Maybe there're others who recall that
The inkwell spilled a story
Much different than my own
Maybe my plans are all I have
You know that I am poor in that

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home

Come down love and flood these streets
Bring those answers that we need

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home
