Walking through the valley of the shadow of my former self
There’s no-one else for miles around
Nowhere I can rest my head tonight

You led me to the water but
I threw in stones to stir it up
Now there’s nothing left to fill my cup to drink

And Oh my God, what have I done
Sold my birthright for a glass of wine
Sometimes I hold it up to my temple like a gun
And I don’t know what happened to
the box that I had built for you
Fortified with platitudes
I think I buried it beneath the house

That was why I ran away
Through the night and through the trees
Through the dark and through the leaves
And Broke my heart on anything I could

You put your arms around me though
I kicked until you let me go
Cause I would rather be alone
Then let somebody love me
