Jason Isbell - Chaos And Clothes

Song Rating: 9.45/10

Song lyrics:

The ground was wet and the sky was dark
You took her bet, she took your heart
Wrapped it round an oak tree
Like you did that 67 GTO
Oh no

Lovers leave chaos and clothes
In quiet corners where you rarely ever go
One day you find proof she was real
Despite your struggle to forget
Oh yes

Youre in a fight to the d**h my friend
Black metal t-shirts your shield
Youve got your past on your breath my friend
Now name all the monsters youve k**ed
Lets name all the monsters youve k**ed

The man she chose to take your place
Turns his collar up to better frame his face
How youd love to hate her
But you just cant hate somebody you dont know
Oh no

Did she leave a trail of crumbs
So you could find youre what you could become


Or did she know you well enough
To realize that garden just wont grow?
Oh no

Youre in a fight to the d**h my friend
Airways a grand battlefield
Youve got your past on your breath my friend
Now name all the monsters youve k**ed
Lets name all the monsters youve k**ed

In my sleep I build machines
But nobody ever wants to hear about my dreams
Last night I saw a burning Ferris Wheel
The meanings anybodys guess
Oh yes

Lovers leave chaos and clothes
More debris that you can sort through in one go
You say love is hell
But its the ghost of love thats made you such a mess
Oh yes

Youre in a fight to the d**h my friend
Fight like youre chained to the wheel
Youve got your past on your breath my friend
Now name all the monsters youve k**ed
Lets name all the monsters youve k**ed
