Lyrics
THREADBARE
Guard me as I sleep
Labyrinth of secrets to keep
Glass eye and growling heart
Promised we would never part
I was born and you were given
Both so small and new back then
Before the damage so alike
Unspoken pledge to share a life

Threadbare, always there

Through the years of childhood games
I grew tall you stayed the same
I cut your hair while mine grew long
I made you patches you made me strong
Named after Roosevelt
You knew exactly how I felt
At every twist and turn of life
You held me close against the knife

Threadbare, always there

Retired bodyguard above my bed
My silly memories fill your fuzzy head
Adored by eyes that never blink
I know you know what I really think

Threadbare, always there
