07 The Damage Appears on the Frame
Danielle Howle – Acoustic Guitar & Vocals
Josh Roberts – Electric Guitar
Kerry Brooks – Upright Bass
Tony Lauria – Accordion

Expressions on your face exhale
And I saw a meadow of glass laying there
So every time your light bends the medium
Collection and connecting all to everything else

And I grew used to such movement
The artful change, the way, oh, your eyes just make me laugh
So, then to see you go through it again
Oh, the valleys and the hills stayed always as time passed

It looks like deer standing in the moment
Without knowing they’re in a sight that is claimed
With no understanding of the blood that is pumping
While time takes its aim
How slowly the damage appears on the frame

The people below me in A.P.T. one
Shock the night every fall
With dragon mist breath falling over themselves
They stumble in need of a wall

Hugging each other when the pushed and the love
Where goodbye could never quite reach
These potted plants, they keep on walking down the street
Looking for water or something to be

They look like deer in the streetlights
Without knowing they’re in a sight that is claimed
With no understanding of the blood that is pumping
While time takes its aim
How slowly the damage appears on the frame

Nobody wants mere impressions
Or to sort out the sources of things
Pointing desire in directions
So it continues to burn what remains
Of anything that once was held naked
A note in the melody’s taken
That brings all composition closer to pain
Oh, something bigger is working
And as it takes aim
My friends are laughing, yeah, we’re joking
Aw, as it takes aim
How slowly the damage appears on the frame
