Damien Jurado Lyrics


Is he still coming around like an injured bird needing a nest?
A place to rest his head in a song you'll regret
Lord knows I don't want to compete
But I still sleep in the very sheets he's been in

Swallow him whole like a pill that makes you choke and stills your soul
You have the nerve to look me in the eyes and lie
Send him back
I'll share the trap that you have me in

Is he still coming around like an injured bird needing a nest?
A place to rest his head in a song you'll regret
Still you take him
Lord knows I don't want to compete
But I still sleep in the very sheets he's been in

Swallow him whole like a pill that makes you choke and stills your soul
You have the nerve to look me in the eyes and lie
Send him back
I'll share the trap that you have me in

(Still you sleep in the very sheets he's been in)

Cause he's still coming around like an injured bird needing a nest
A place to rest his head in a song you'll regret
Still you take him, Lord knows I don't want to compete
Still I sleep in the very sheets he's been in

Swallow him whole like a pill that makes you choke, it steals your soul
You have the nerve to look me in the eyes and lie
Send him back, I won't share the trap that you have me in

"The moment a song describes your most bitter sweet relationship down to the syllable, and the worst part is you're still naive and trusting enough to give her all of your heart for bits and pieces of hers, hoping someday she'll do the same. But she won't, so you cling to the moments when she is with you wholly, because you can survive off it. Like a man dying of thirst whose endlessly chasing the smallest trickle of water, begging God all the while that she will give the entirety of her heart to you so you can finally drink it all in. But in the back of your mind there's a constant knowing; an aching, anxious knowing that you're hopelessly caught and she will never change, no matter how happy you make her." - I wrote this on another upload of the same song almost two years ago after being in an eerily similar relationship to the one described in the song. I found myself meandering back to it today, simply to reflect and to try and remember what I was feeling at the time. The irony is I carried the pain and longing for this doomed relationship I wrote about into my next one. It shackled my heart and numbed my feelings for my new partner. Eventually, I woke up and realized that the better of the two relationships was right in front of me; the girl of my dreams. But by that time, things had gone downhill between us due to my inability to give the same love I had attempted to give my previous partner. In essence, I had become the woman Damien is singing about, though without any actual physical infidelity. The latter girl could sense this, I'm sure, and I think it was what eventually fueled her decision to end things, despite my request that she give us another shot. Moral of the story is that time is finite, don't waste it on those who cannot or will not offer their whole heart to you. It might feel like cutting off your own limb, or carving a piece of your heart out with a dull knife, but do it. Conversely, if you cannot provide that same commitment to someone else, move along, no matter how difficult, as odds are you will do nothing but hurt both him/her and yourself in the end. Still one of my most favorite depressingly amazing songs. Time heals most of it though :)

What you said was beautiful and eerily deep... Thank you.

I hate to believe your comment and I don't want to admit it, but THAT IS ME RIGHT NOW. The moment I make things go my way. I am gone... and this time it's forever to never come back and withouy saying goodbye.

Kendra Shergold

@Dawn Cain thank you so so much! I did find the strength to pull away! But I was faltering and he broke it off for another person and left me broken completely. But I researched and educated myself and got therapy. Discovered he was truly a narcissist and that I was a codependent. I am now on a road to healing that is bringing me joy and awakenings that I am so grateful for. And one day maybe I will find the love that my heart seeks. Your comment was so sweet and your thoughts too, so thank you 🥰
