lyrics

They’re gonna have to tear me away from you
‘Cause you're the one thing that I can't lose
I gather my memories around me
Because I can't keep holding onto you

I tried, I can't no more
How do you keep it from falling to pieces the guns always bring down the door
You and I
It was always war
How do you keep it from falling to pieces the blood won't come up off the floor

But I'm alright.

They’re gonna have to tear me away from you
‘cause you're the one thing that I can't lose
I gather my memories around me
Because I can't keep holding onto you

Arms hide
Hands restore
How do you keep it from falling to pieces the guns always bring down the door
You and I - it was always war
How do you keep it from falling to pieces the blood won't come up off the floor

As all the days come undone
How the Hell did I ever lose this one
You and I - it was always war
How do you keep it from falling to pieces the guns always bring down the door

But I'm alright
It’s not what they told you, I told you
For half my life
I slept with the dogs outside
I'm alright whenever I hold you
I touch you
I'm alright

They’re gonna to tear me away from you

about

Northern Arms Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Northern Arms are masters of haunting moods and striking storytelling. Helmed by singer and songwriter Keith Richard Peirce, the ten-piece band incorporates dark imagery with a musical mystique that hits on jazz, folk, and gospel, and blends it with gothic Americana in the vein of 16th Horsepower, Tom Waits and legendary Austin cult faves Lift to Experience.
- John Vettese, WXPN The Key
