Ethel Cain – A House in Nebraska Lyrics

Ethel Cain – A House in Nebraska Lyrics

Labored breaths and bed sores
Sing it to me all day long
When the aching sound of silence
Used to be our favorite song
You and me against the world
You were my man and i your girl
We had nothing except each other
You were my whole world
But then the day came
And you were up and gone

I still call home that house in nebraska
Where we found each other on a dirty mattress on the second floor
Where the world was empty
Save you and i
Where you came and i laughed, and we left, and i cried
Where you told me even if we died tonight, that i’d die yours

These dirt roads are empty
The ones we paved ourselves
Your mama calls me sometimes
To see if i’m doing well
And i lie to her
And say that i’m doing fine
When really i’d kill myself
To hold you one more time
And it hurts to miss you
But it’s worse to know
That i’m the reason
You won’t come home

But i still call home that house in nebraska
Where we found each other on a dirty mattress on the second floor
(Where I needed you, and I need you still)
Where the world was empty
Save you and i
Where you came and i laughed, and we left, and i cried
Where you told me even if we died tonight, that i’d die yours
(So I died there under you, every night, all night)

You know, i still wait at the edge of town
Praying straight to god that maybe, you’ll come back around
I cry every day, and the bottles make it worse
Cause you were the only one i was never scared to tell i hurt
And i found photographs of our school, on the day we met
I thought that you were so beautiful, it was love i guess
And you might never come back home, and i may never sleep at night
But god i just hope you’re doing fine out there, i just pray that you’re all right

I feel so alone
I feel so alone out here
I feel so alone
I feel so alone out here
And i feel so alone without you
I feel so alone out here
I feel so alone, i feel so alone
I’m so alone out here
Without you, baby
