Lyrics



Blackbirds dot the sun like pinholes
where the night shines through
And I’m missing you
Every time she cries I apologize
I don’t know what else to do
The sky is bruised and blushing
Like a broken woman singing, “hush now”

I wish that I could
Oh, I wish that I could
Wrap you up in my morning coat

People rush around just like horses on a carousel
Oh, and I don’t know why we fell out of love, but
Boats out on the lake drift like buckets floating in a well
and I’m Sinking down
Tail lights start to flicker
in the mirror and that’s all that she wrote

I wish that I could
Oh, I wish that I could
Wrap you up in my morning coat

I wish that I could (wrap you up)
Oh, I wish that I could (wrap you up)
Wrap you up in my morning coat (in my morning coat)

Oh, I miss you and you know I’m sorry
When I come home will you pick me up at the station
The sky is falling, and I got nothing to show for all my time away and I miss you baby
I played my card too soon, you know I’m missing you, missing you
