Weeds & Wrought Iron

from by Brian McGrath

lyrics

Love among the weeds
Wrought-iron streets
Soon you’ll be gone
Fast asleep

Painted pictures fly
Oh it cuts so deep
Dreaming of a life
That never does come

I’ve been waiting for this night to come around
Wounded lovers trying to find a way back home
But where is home?

You say I’ve got it together
I’ve got the world on a string
But no, that just ain’t me babe
At least never again

Well we wanted what we wanted
It was just never the same
Things get bruised, they get broken
We’re both to blame

I’ve been waiting for this night to come around
Wounded lovers trying to find a way back home
But where is home?

The forest for the trees
Oh Lord, you took me out at the knees
One of us is wrought iron, and the other the weeds

Wild wind won’t you take me?
I just can’t stay
Things get bruised, they get broken
People change

I once sang that I keep losing the things I love the most
I can’t shake this terrible feeling that I’m in love with a ghost

I’ve been waiting for this night to come around
Wounded lovers trying to find a way back home
But where is home?
Where is home?
