"Yvette" lyrics - JASON ISBELL


I can barely make out a little light from the house on the cul-de-sac
Bedroom upstairs, it's a family affair.

I've watched you in class, your eyes are cut glass and you stay covered up,
Head to your toe, so nobody will notice you

I might not be a man yet,
But that bastard will never be,
So I'm cleaning my Weatherby
I sight in my scope
And I hope against hope.
I hope against hope.

Your mother seems nice, I don't understand why she won't say anything.
As if she can't see who he turned out to be.

I might not be a man yet,
But your father will never be.
So I load up my Weatherby,
And I let out my breath,
And I couple with death.
I couple with death.

Saw your father last night, and in the window the light made a silhouette.
Saw him hold you that way, he won't hold you that way anymore, Yvette.
