Sylvan Esso Slack Jaw Lyrics

I got all the parts I wished for

I’ve got everything I need

Sometimes I’m above water

But mostly I’m at sea

Oh, slack jawed me

Can’t you see?

There’s so many rhythms and harmonies

And I’m walking the dog back

It’s not like I got hurt or broken

Or ruined on the way

It’s an ache and it shines through me

A swallow in a cage

Oh, slack jawed me

Can’t you see?

There’s so many rhythms and harmonies

And I’m walking the dog back

Is it a sign? Or just a landmine?

Or a feeling roaming free?

It’s overtaken me

Gonna hold it ’til it dries up

Or pocket it for another day

If it’s me I cannot give up

I’d rather that she stayed

Oh, slack jawed me

Can’t you see?

There’s so many rhythms and harmonies

And I’m walking the dog back

I got all the parts I’ve wished for

I got everything I need

Sometimes I’m above water

But mostly I’m at sea

Oh, slack jawed me

Can’t you see?

There’s so many rhythms and harmonies

And I’m walking the dog back
