the night i snagged my sleeve on your fence was just around the same you wrapped yourself up in white and changed your maiden name and now Im hungry for a body or a long distance call and Charlie says shes never been happier but she still sleeps all day and me Im working the weekend and saving all my pay for a marble coast and a motel room booked for May and what Id give to be anywhere else when Im sweating out a fever in a strangers house and Its 2 am and you're calling again and you're sick of all the silence but you don’t answer it with your ear to the wall listen for the mice as they tend to their young wonder about time and the boy that you were with your brothers rifle and a wounded bird I caught you fork right by the power socket I caught you matches crumpled in your pocket I caught you and Im not letting go I caught you sinking rafts out on the water I caught you laying with the sheriff's daughter I caught you and Im not letting go (sung in rounds with “letting go”) breaking tiny insect legs embarrassed by the tool shed throwing rocks at passing trains anxious to duck your head slept out in the graveyard the blankets were far too thin hitch hiked to Casco missed you and walked home again
