Tyrant Destroyed

Tyrant Destroyed
Lyrics:

I know you spent some time from the town to the city
Looking for a place to start
And when you were fifteen I know what you said
"I'll never let another black boy break my heart"

You waited a decade for me to come find you
There's never been a chance so rare
I was just stumbling out on a prosthetic love
and there had never been someone so real

this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands.
Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands

As if it wasn't enough just to hear you speak
they had to give you lips like that
like all of your sadness reduced to a color
then painted upon you, how could i forget you.

And who was I to think that on a Saturday night
that you would really bike home alone
And the way that I left you just hanging on Sundays
Any fair skin boy could take you home

this was, Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands.
Love and I was such a tyrant, destroyer
as you sat sinking in my hands

When We’re Dancing

I am trying to remember all the things that I’ve know
They all shine, soft and stand alone
Like I picture you waiting at the end of a bridge
But it’s hard for me to render up the things that we did

You playing doctor with the door unlocked
Kissing on your cousin and you both got caught
And this how the cleft was formed inside the silent ground
Those words in your mouth

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing

Is your cheek still red from where you caught her hand?
Or are you just in love again
The search party’s out yes they’re hunting your name
but all young lovers they look the same

You were driving with your eyes closed 75
With you foot to the floor and your head to the sky
And this is how the cleft was born inside the silent ground
Those words in your mouth

Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
Please leave us alone when we’re dancing
