lyrics

This scene keeps finding me, though I try and hide it unrelentingly seeks and seems to be the one sly fox I cannot shake.
Tucked in the woods in sheets of rain, with empty paws sunk deep into the mud.
Teeth and tongue held tight behind its thin black lips it sings a rhyme and tells me to double my chances.
I am no snake, though I have one around my neck, I do not tempt, except for when I do and that’s because I wanted to.

Not for the line that makes the frame that so seduces me today.
The greenest vines I found to tie you down and take a frenzied bite.
I’m going back to start the truck, turn on the lights and warm it up.
I’m going down to start the fire, I’m going down to go back up.
I’m going back to start the truck, take a sip of water, a real big gulp.
I’m going down to start a fire, to see you down and raise you up.
I’m going back to see your face, I kissed your photo twice today.
Once in the morning dark and once again before I start to fix my hair and shave my chin and wonder where the hell I’ve been, and see you peacefully sleeping there.

Why do you cry when you look at me?
I love your eye and all those tears.
When you told them at the gates of glory, that I’m your man.
The years are long and the time is tough to deal with every single day and every thought says your name.
