Written by Susan Kean Cattaneo - Rockin' Fairy Music (ASCAP)



That old black clock is ticking on the nightstand
Like a time bomb
And I reach for him in the soft blue light of the late show
But he’s long gone
And here you are again
Sharing my bed
Just like you’ve always done

Lonely, be my lover you’ve always been my friend
Lonely, be my lover I’m giving up, I’m giving in
Cause I’m better off loving you than loving him

That old kitchen sink is dripping like a teardrop
And it won’t stop
And these empty rooms like his empty words
They just go on, and they don’t stop
But I’ve made my peace
Just out of his reach
And my will be done


We all got something broke
A wreck to call our own
And mine feels just like home



from The Hammer & The Heart, released August 25, 2017
