lyrics

Swallowed Whole
Sherah Sleeper

Peel away the layer of faded paint that covers the signs
I’m not blind
As long as I have known you I’ve known the lies that fool you inside
Every time

And it takes you down like a thief who’s found
A big bag of money
And before you know it’ll swallow us whole
Well ain't it funny that you don’t see

You don’t see

If I had a penny for all the times you told me you were just fine
I’d buy a gold mine
But I watch you running faster and I’m wondering what you’re after
Baby sometimes
The heart lies

And it shuts you down, come on! one more round
You just can’t make it to the door
And before you know it’ll swallow us whole
Well I’ve seen this mess before
But you don’t see

You don’t see

If you walk away from me, disappear into the sea
All we’ve got will fall apart in a heartbeat
Can running heal your soul? Can hiding make you whole?
My arms are open hoping you’ll come back

But it hunts you down like a hungry hound
Coming in for the kill
And before you know it’ll swallow us whole I know it will
But you don’t see

about

Sherah Austin, Texas

We're an Austin-based, Acoustic Pop/Roots band with a romantic, 40's jazz twist. Sherah writes for The Fine Souls, & sings a sultry lead vocal. Phil Montfort's on acoustic and electric guitar & Zeke Benenate's on upright bass. We are currently in hot pursuit of a jazz drummer, but often Chris Trafton, Tom Van Schaik, and Michael Hale rotate in. Visit our website to see our show calendar. ... more
