On The Mend

from by The Endless

lyrics

all the coyotes in the hills of town
are coming down
running to my soul
trailing memory like breadcrumbs
the pack has come
and they will feast until they’re full

i’ve kept my hand in my wound
just to remember it’s real
here, i’m starting again, again
on the mend

now the howl becomes a song
that i can hum along
flooding through my soul
“why can’t you simplify your heart?
why can’t you simplify your heart?”

i put my hand to your wound
just to remember i’m real
here, i’m starting again, again
on the mend

this is my Mystery
my responsibility
and while i’ve lost my Lamb to the wild
Experience made me stronger
than i ever could have grown on my own
i put my hand to my heart
just to remember it’s real
here, i’m starting again, again
on the mend

no one gets my happiness
no one gets the keys
no one knows what’s hidden in the creaky stair but me
no one knows what’s hidden in the bed knob
