  1. Permanent Red

From the album Ghosts and Saints

Lyrics

Lie with me
and let's be still
see the world from windowsills
close your eyes be still you say, be still
You know my voice
I heard you say
Soft breath on me- I turn away
Just be right here yeah, it's ok

I might be chasing or be chased
But you won't see it on my face

Lips lined, painted
Permanent Red
Kiss me, memory,
Permanent Red

On this bed we can pretend
that nothing ever has to end
I got lost where have we been
Held in your arms and halfway gone
Dying glow of late-day sun
Why do I run why do I always run

Follow me, I've lost my way
Find yourself I heard you say
Just please stay, don't go away
Lie with me and let's be still
see the world from windowsills
Close your eyes be still I say
