Serving Time - Incarceration of both sides

 “They kept me in a cage for too long because now every room I am standing in is just another cell.” - Raegan Butcher, Rusty String Quartet


We got together, I quickly knew

You were my lover and a thug too

Days went by and nights we do

Your criminal mentality showed straight through

Sirens coming now, the boys in blue

This was it, I'd serve time with you

Doors clicking on the inside and you knew

mind clicking on the outs, I'm serving time with you

You were spinning, calls not going through

I was spinning, serving time with you

Letters, so many letters, all holding a clue

That my love, I'm serving time with you.

Soon the days will be through

Last days of serving time with you

Freedom it calls, everything new

I'll have to do it again, serving time with you
