Lyrics

Saint in the Yard

I was the saint in the yard,
I learned my role and I played her hard
I was a shepherdess guard
I held his hand and I drove the car
I held his hand and I drove the car

I tried to make everything bright
I pushed through the days, threw away every night
No one can say I didn’t try
But nothing you say is gonna’ make it all right
No, nothing you say can make this thing right

Fire all around me
Fire, Burn this house down!
All around me

I rushed on the scene, my sword drawn
Like a doe becomes brave, I defended the fawn
Covered my body in steel
I ran the baths and I cooked the meals
I ran the baths and I cooked the meals

But a part of me watched from outside
Saw the glasses break and the flowers die
No one can say I didn’t try
But nothing you say is gonna’ make it all right
No, nothing you say can make this thing right
