about

The third track from Joe Hedges second full-length solo album Alchemy.

lyrics

turn turn on the sky
there's a star identified
all the rooftops are alive with brewery ghosts

the nice things that you said
hang our legs off of the edge
there's song stuck in my head
i'm unopposed

ooo ooo oo oo oo

walking backwards
under ladders
making circles
in my house

vacant memories
i'm a sandstorm
vacant buildings
are burning down

speak it clearly
speaking slowly
i will sing 'til i'm
understood

walking backwards
under ladders
all i want is
something good


what what can you say
on the cloudiest of days
there's a pin stuck in the haze
i know it's here

ooo ooo oo oo oo


walking backwards
under ladders
making circles
in my house

vacant memories
i'm a sandstorm
vacant buildings
are burning down

speak it clearly
speaking slowly
i will sing 'til i'm
understood

walking backwards
under ladders
all i want is
something good


balancing on a line
i don't know to what it's tied
could it be to you
or a bright red balloon
balancing on a line
i don't know to what it's tied


walking backwards
under ladders
making circles
in my house

vacant memories
i'm a sandstorm
vacant buildings
are burning down

speak it clearly
speaking slowly
i will sing 'til i'm
understood

walking backwards
under ladders
all i want is
something good

walking backwards
under ladders
walking backwards
under ladders

underwater
speaking slowly
i will sing 'til i'm
understood

walking backwards
under ladders
all i want is
something good
