Better days
When I snuggled up to Carlo
The day his father died
And we kissed
While the moon smiled upon us

All the trouble
Like the fake paystubs
And the chips that paid my rent ohh ohh ohh

We wait lock ourselves in the bedroom
I’m not leaving your side this time

Gone are the tears
Gone are the days

God bless the haunted
They keep the stories alive
God bless the monuments we
Fragile men make may they stand tall oh
