lyrics

When they found her she was not the same
No one spoke of the marks on her shoulders
We knew each other by a common shame
That we could not name til we were older
And drowning, drowning
Will this thing ever work again?

We spent the winter up on Alki beach
And the frost came sooner than expected
Try to remember singing on New Years Eve
I tried to call but your phone was disconnected
Come find me, find me
If this can ever work again
Will this thing ever work again?

We have seen silver waves crash on Malin Head
We have run with the wolves out beyond the hedge
So don't count me out babe
Don't count me out babe

Dress me up like a dog in a collar
Take my youth and my truth and my dollars
But don't count me out babe
Don't count us out babe

Let the cold wind blow upon your face
We have come home from further places
Don't count me out babe
Don't count me out babe

They took so much of you
They took so much of me
But don't count us out babe
Don't count me out
