lyrics

God-gold grass waltzed artless and low
I stood tall in that light air
By the chalice pond that swallowed the sun
And spit out the skies so bare

There I watched with eyes auspicious green
Now they’re unhinged blue and stone.
You said the Midwest suits me best
But the south got to my bones

The mountains stretch: chipped, antique teeth
A primeval cry of praise
For a twilight glow, cactus flowers and gold
An alluring horizon haze

Lungs full up with open sky
Now I breathe your dark smoke draft
You begged, you begged, you begged come home
I gave in at last

The whole world felt mine when the blue moon rose
Those evenings my release
And when the morning dew blessed my toes
I thought I was ready to leave

Where I lived with buoyant heart
Now my chest could sink a ship
You say that it’s just of my defects
But I’ve faltered in your grip

There I was what you craved but lacked
Now we live face to face
You say that you’ve lost your faith in me
Well I’ve just lost my faith
