lyrics

Oh, Sarah, you married a twelve-gauge because you knew he’d keep you safe. You claim that your last man—he was a hand grenade. So compared to then, you’re doing great.

Growing up, your Pa was no less than a bomb and your Ma taught you that’s how it’d be. She said, “In this god damned age, the only way to stay sane is find a man who won’t go away and sacrifice your father’s name. I know you’ll tell your kids the same. Take it from me.”

Oh, Sarah, you married a switchblade because you knew he’d keep you safe. You claim that your last man—well, he was a twelve-gauge. So compared to then, you’re doing great.

But times have changed from what they were. While your mother was well-meaning, she didn’t know that a woman don’t need a weapon anymore. Sarah, I know that you don’t need me but I love you just the same. And I think that I know what you mean when you whisper you’re a prisoner of war.

I don’t want to be your hand grenade, your twelve-gauge, or your switchblade. I want to open up your cage and set you free.
