lyrics

written in the peeling of the paint
twenty-seven years I will retain
damaged where I held you like a saint

mother up and slammed the door
now our house ain't a home no more
it's a place we hang our laundry out to dry
a wind picked up and blew the nest
and no-one knows what happens next
the dispelling is a'swelling in the sky
in a place we hang our laundry out to dry

money weren't enough to sway her heart
though she took it and she drank it by the cart
the mediator said that was the start

mother up and slammed the door
now our house ain't a home no more
it's a place we hang our laundry out to dry
the papers in my father's desk
say change is coming soon I guess
there's a failed attempt for every time you try
in a place we hang our laundry out to dry

mother up and slammed the door
now our house ain't a home no more
it's a place we hang our laundry out to dry
there's room for you inside the bed
but you learned to sleep alone instead
there's a caustic and begrudging last goodbye
the dispelling is a'swelling in the sky
in a place we hang our laundry out to dry
