Rusty Nails

We opened a wall
To make more room
Those old beams
All rough hewn
All rough hewn
Rust on the nails
Marking time

Fireplace brick
A bygone time
Back when we
Were in our prime
Were in our prime
Rust on the nails
Marking time

This old house
As old as I
Grew together
Like vintage wine
Like vintage wine
Rust on the nails
Marking time
