Lyrics

Bugs

Back to all the words

I got home and found hanging on my fence
A hollow, empty shell from a locust
He shed his armor now, that brave boy
The rain will fall, the wind will blow, it’s still hanging on
It’s been so long since I had a good cry
It used to be so much easier
I don’t even know why, why I’m so dry
I try to catch my breath, I think I’ve had enough


I went out on the porch, waiting for the dark
I heard a cricket, under the flowerpot.
He’s chirping the saddest song for everything he’s lost
He’s chirping loud and long, I think I know how he feels
It’s been so long since I had a good cry
It used to be so much easier
I don’t even know why, why I’m so dry
I try to catch my breath, I think I’ve had enough
