SWEET BOUQUET

Sweet Bouquet

Vase of steel

Nights of hungry black

Time stands still

A month has gone

I’ve come to take you back


There’s something on the table that reminds me of the song

That you sang to me beneath the breeze when everything was wrong

Everything was push and shove

All wagon wheel and whip

Cupid shot an arrow with poison on the tip


There’s something very troubling / I can see it from a far

I can see it out the window shining like the northern star

Shoulder me a boulder from a sliver to a rock

I’ve half a mind and twice the heart to take another shot


This room is a liar / It’s colder and colder

Over and over / It lies to my face


Roll me over slower now and paint me in a corner

I’ll meet you in a century when both of us are born

Crawling in the forest / Forgiven by the trees

Lightning struck a blade of grass

Surrounded by the weeds
