Lyrics

evan - guitar, banjo, vocals rachel arnold - cello these past few nights we've slept with skin warm on skin and the sirens in the hours before dawn the weak grey light too much to keep me from thinking your hand in mine enough to keep me feeling strong and if they come for us by morning with that knock knock on the door i'll hold you a little closer as they reach the second floor and if i have to give my name you know i won't be giving yours i'll run my hands through your hair and say it's them who's really scared cuz they know our love is stronger than their bars could ever be that afternoon we sat cross legged in the backyard as the smoke erased our pictures dates and names took just one match to burn this poetic evidence and just one glance to see our fear reflected in the flames and if you called me up past midnight you hear that clicking on the line? i would try to reassure you that everything is fine and if you have to give your name i know you won't be giving mine you'll run your hands through my hair and say it's them who's really scared cuz they know our love is stronger than their bars could ever be sometimes you give em hell and sometimes there's hell to pay but they know damn well that we are not going away we may be lying through our teeth but we'll still sing we are not afraid and friends i swear that i'll keep singing if they take you away when they come for us by sundown black steel glints in vacant eyes we'll shake our heads and link our arms and ask how many more must die? in defense of earth and freedom in defiance of the lies we've been fighting for so long and i just can't believe you're gone still i know our love is stronger than their guns could ever be
