Cataldo - Black Lamb Lyrics

If this age is going to change me
Then let it change me by degree
If I become something disgusting
I’ll just retrace my steps and leave

But what a cowardly thing: to know the notes but not sing

So let the tall grass creep up into my wheel-wells
And let the grey paint-speckled
Husk betray the way I lived while
I was being born in travel.
Every breath was summer air.

Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair

And when you look into the mirror and see a shivering actress
And you half forget the difference
Between the blond girl and the black dress
Well don’t dwell too much on that

You know the steps so just dance

And let the tall grass creep up into my wheel-wells
And let the gray paint-speckled
Husk betray the way I lived while
I was being born in travel
Every breath was summer air
Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair
Not the town drunk screaming that my shot wasn’t fair
Not a dry eye blinking and trying hard not to stare
Not a black lamb reading Vanity Fair
