lyrics

Shovel

My heart takes me, back in time
everyone I loved was under one roof
Days had no names, I wish I could stay
but I’m feeling too far away

a good for nothing buildings stands
on top of our sweet memories
where the mayor’s silver shovel sank down
into my old street

When a boot stomps a steel blade Into the ground
Listen for the whisper, it’s a mournful sound
Something’s going up or coming down
When a boot stomps a steel blade into the ground


Life saw fit, for me to roam
Through days cruel, on my own
Til I found somebody that I could call home
She’s with me wherever I go


On the day I lay down in my best suit
To leave my love and all she saw me through
I plan to take this gold ring she put on my hand
Find an honest undertaker man


When a boot stomps a steel blade Into the ground
Listen for the whisper, it’s a mournful sound
Something’s going up or coming down
When a boot stomps a steel blade into the ground
