Brandon Boyd – Pocket Knife Lyrics

 

Pocket Knife Lyrics by Brandon Boyd

 

Take this old pocket knife that I have been keeping
Hold it under pillow while you are sleeping
Then cut a window into your oldest and darkest dream
And let it wash over you, that life-like, love light beam

If trouble comes tonight, remember your pocket knife
To cut into the dark and let in a little light with this ol’ pocket knife
If trouble comes tonight, remember your pocket knife
Pocket knife

Take your old weather-worn boots you were about to retire
Lace them together up on a phone wire
We’ll walk into everyone’s ears and we’ll talk about this love
The only thing around here there is never enough of

If trouble comes tonight, remember your pocket knife
To cut into the dark and let in a little light with this ol’ pocket knife
If trouble comes tonight, remember your pocket knife
Pocket knife
To cut into the dark and let in a little light with this ol’ pocket knife

Here we learn to shadow box, here we learn to stay and fight
Here we know to pick old locks, here we are bathed in light

Take this old pocket knife that I have been keeping
Hold it under pillow while you are sleeping
