KIT HOLMES: Songs and Albums

Split Decision

(KIT HOLMES)
Kit Holmes

I'm watchin' a yellow dog diggin' a hole in the black dirt

Burying a bone or pulling up a shoe

I'm sittin' in my car wearing one of your old shirts

Bringing up the question, "What do I do with you?"

You handed me a riddle

It tears me right down the middle

Like a hard summer rain, or a foggy window pane

Every word from you blurs my vision

All in one, all or none

Do I stay? Do I run?

I am all but undone with this

Split Decision

 

Pretty little yellow house on a hillside

Cozy little cottage with a million-dollar view

That pretty little promise is a thrill ride

Just another in a long line of all the lies you use

To keep your life as a riddle

Tears me right down the middle

Like a hard summer rain or a foggy window pane

Every word from you blurs my vision

All in one, all or none

Do I stay? Do I run?

I am all but undone with this

Split decision

I hear all you have to say

Beggin', cryin' on the phone

Should I throw my life away

'cause you just can't handle being alone?

 

I'm watching that yellow dog diggin' a hole in the black dirt

Buryin' that bone, or chewing up that shoe

I'm thinkin' bout throwin' out this old shirt

Burying the memory, tearing up these blues

The thought of solving that riddle

Tears me right down the middle

 

Like a hard summer rain, or a foggy window pane

Every word from you blurs my vision

All in one, all or none

Do I stay? Do I run?

I am all but undone with this damned

Split decision
