Painted Saints
On the driveway the tail lights are fading
And I'm out of borrowed time
I can hear that lonesome music playing
On the other side of that haunted medicine line

Outside the world is dreaming
And I'm on a saline line
I've been seeing small print on the ceiling
Stealing these last minutes by your side

I'll be waiting for you darling on that county border line
You'll be cursing at my picture until you finally arrive

Darling the party is ending
We're waiting for the ambulance to arrive
I know lately you have stopped pretending
That anything but elements survive

I'll be waiting for you darling in the stars at night
I'll be pouring through the painted saints in the early morning light
