It's a silly, fine, little line we walk when my strumming hands get tired and my voice is shot we've been waiting for the line to cross over to the dark do you want it to or not well its a fickle, senseless rhetoric we talk and my whiskey breath is warm but the mic is hot we've been waiting for the heat to drop and sink into the fog do you want it to or not Wait, don't go so far I wanna catch up to where you are Let there be dark Let the sunrise fall It's a tricky tipsy delicate dance we trot and my weary feet are following like a fox we've been waiting for the light to wash over all we've lost do you want it to or not Wait don't go so far I wanna catch up to where you are Let there be dark Let the sunrise stop Still the waves, and walk I wanna be where you are

When you're done convincing me and I'm done convincing you Honey, you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do and when I'm done crying over things that ain't true When you're done fighting against the wings that lift you and when I'm done lying about the diamonds in my shoes Oh honey you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do And I won't hide my devotion, I won't cover my love with a cold ambivalence or readiness to run I am buffalo abundance Readiness to give My whole damn body is built for it So you can take your time testing the depth of my love My tears, they are fleeting, and my God is enough and you know I'll keep on walking I'll move steady on through Cause honey you know we're just gonna do whatever we're gonna do And I won't hide my devotion, I won't cover my love with a cold ambivalence or readiness to run I am buffalo abundance Readiness to give My whole damn body is built for it So the gifts you've been receiving you get to keep them, bones and all Don't you know when you take the buffalo, you take the buffalo whole.
