lirik lagu getaway – the milk carton kids


[verse 1]
the shatter of the bottles
would scare me something awful as a kid
my fear how it would harden
and find a home in places that i hid

[verse 2]
i’d tear ’em down
and run away
but never found my getaway

[verse 3]
outside tuscaloosa
the time you thought you turned it all around
remember how you used to think
you could salvage anything you found

[verse 4]
you knew it then
you know it now
the rattle of chains
still rattles loud

[verse 5]
in all those years of moving
i was slowly losing all my names
no matter what i’d ruin
it couldn’t hold a candle to the pain

[verse 6]
my tears are real
and all my own
pouring down there all alone

[verse 7]
the soft roll of the water
reminds me of my father’s parting words
son, now don’t you bother
looking for your place out in the world

[verse 8]
the tide will roll
through the waves
son, you’ll find your getaway
