I shot an arrow through your window
Hopin’ to catch a piece of you
The sun is setting now
I’m only growin’ older
And, honey, it was just something to do

As seasons changed, the flame grew colder
And I quit lookin’ ‘round for you
‘cause all I have to do
Is peak over my shoulder
To find you standin’ there tight’nin’ the noose

But, oh, these memories grow darker every day
Soon, all that I’ll have left are dreams of you
And so I cast away the arrow and the flame
‘cause everything you love, you’re bound to lose
‘til all that you’ll find left behind’s the blues

Morning River Band Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Inspired equally by encounters with George Jones and Jim Beam, Morning River Band sings simple songs of drinking, dying, and divorce, and tells tall tales of broken minds, broken bodies, and broken hearts.
