Pulse 01:38
Sing to Her Name Untie the muse Hear the sounds of blood over gold and fear the sailors' blues The Sirens watching you They cried Hallelujah They cried Hallelu Mama, please don't worry You sang my sins to sleep and the world will make space for me Mama, in hunger you found me You taught me forgiveness and healed my body with grace Sing to Her Name
Of Glass 05:26
Pullin' up her stockings on that red light morning, trying to comb the smoke out of her hair. Ravaging for numbers like they were pennies on the floor, weaving through the spine that seem to care. Waiting for his hands to make her whole, treading water with love made of whiskey and wine. She sang empty lullabies of gold, always waiting for someone to ask her to speak. And girl, I know, you know, that you're better than that and I hope one day that you realize, you don't need me. Chorus: You don't need me Cornering the devil on that Sunday morning, trying to wash the doubt out of his hair. Making up his stories cause empty bottles don't go far when truth is left unsaid in the high tide, after the moon rise. And boy, I know, you know that you're better than that and I hope one day that you realize, you don't need me.
For Buddy 04:53
Undone 03:25
Call me home, I'm so undone. Sing me gone, I'm so unsung. Cause at last, I've forgotten your name. Your name. Soak me dry, I'm so unclean. And catch my breath, I'm so unchained. Cause at last, I've swept away your ghost.
Reprise 05:26
