Lantern

from Autumn by Andrew Huang

lyrics

o if you only had a firearm you wouldn’t need me, darling
o if you wanted to be free, you could
they’ll tie you down to the tracks or slip pills in your drink without me
and while i’m not as handsome as the least of them

i just want you to know i’ve got your back
and you know i’ve got your front
and you know i’ll move you side to side to side on the dancefloor

we’ve got to get you out of here
we’ve got to get you out of here
we’ve got to get you out of those wet clothes
we’ve got to get you out of this town

i know my way ‘round the hills, ‘round the mountains and valleys my lady
i am a lantern in the want of night
the secret everyone craves is unclasped on the nape of your neck
o, hush, if i didn’t just see the barkeep whisper into an ear with his eye on you

but you know i’ve got your back
and you know i’ve got your front
and you know i’ll move you side to side
decide if you’ll run away with me tonight

we’ve got to get you out of here
we’ve got to get you out of here
we’ve got to get you out of those wet clothes
we’ve got to get you out of this town
