  • Lyrics: once there was a castle in the mountains, a couple kids, a comely garden, and a white knight too. Stout and true. Now where there were stables there's a screen door, a quarter acre by the airport, and a dried up yard. No flowers. Say that you won't go away. Say you love me say you'll stay. Or just take this ring and by up what you break. Cause this is the life that we made, with rusted hinges, peeling paint. It may not be perfect, but I love it. And I find diamonds everyday. Mornings this old house is like a palace. I pack her lunch and Lucy's glasses. And I let you sleep as her bus leaves. Boxes and bags packed, you stand. “It's just the little things that are breaking me down.” I'll call when I get settled. “It's just the little things that are breaking me down.” The upkeep of a fantasy no longer has a hold on me Go, if you must run away, but don't be here when I wake. (If I made a promise, I never said I wouldn't let you down) Or just take this ring and by up what you break. (Cause I can't be your motivation. I got so much left to do) This is the life that we made with rusted hinges and peeling paint. (This is the life that you made now it's not me...clamped with chains) And I know it's not perfect (It once was about me) And I know I'm not perfect (Then was about us) Now it's about her (Tell Lucy goodbye, and I'm so sorry) And I find diamonds everyday.

Conceived as the third full length album in 2008, band-leader Jeff Noller
worked overnight shifts in a factory to buy studio gear and a house in which
to build his dream studio. Close to completing work on this ...
