lyrics

Cry out on a cold April evening
Fingers tremble as she runs to the fold
A gentle whisper ain't so soothing
When his hands are too still to hold

Sterile walls and the chill exceeding
Cold metal instruments piercing his gut
Tenderly brushing the hair from his forehead
Hoping the warmth in her hands are enough

Time is a demon
Time is a savior
It's a damn shame, it's a damn shame
Gave up my vices and
Chased all my saviors away

Slower breathing, slower beating
Prayin to Jesus for some kind of hope
50 years ain't but faces and voices
But a lover's touch can make the years go slow

Time is a demon
Time is a savior
It's a damn shame, it's a damn shame
Gave up my vices and
Chased all my saviors away

Days get warmer, she sits by the window
Silence hangs heavy in an empty home
All of the years that they laughed and wandered
Never wanted to spend the last ones alone.
