lyrics

jericho by david verga

absent footsteps in an empty hall
a crumpled letter tellin' you that it's not your fault
sit and think of what you meant to say and how
singin' songs to her pictures just ain't the same

and out in oklahoma crysta's crying' for her kin
sweet linnae has got the blues
and you should know by now when you play love you play for keeps
but it hasn't gotten through to you

nantahala's pourin' white over waterfalls
and tears are streamin' down your face
you keep tryin' to drink yourself to sleep at night
but the whiskey just can't seem to take her place

and out in oklahoma crysta's crying' for her kin
sweet linnae has got the blues
and you should know by now when you play love you play for keeps
but it hasn't gotten through to you

now she prays every night that you would stop building walls
and pushin' her away
and you pray every night that god would give that girl a horn
and bring your jericho tumbling' down someday

but all you hear at night is breath your lover used to take
when she was lyin' next to you
and now you wish that you could have her back in your arms
but you don't get to choose

and out in oklahoma crysta's crying' for her kin
sweet linnae has got the blues
and you should know by now when you play love you play for keeps
but it hasn't gotten through to you

you should know by now
so why don't you?

it hasn't gotten through
