Florida Palm

from Joy and Better Days by Hip Hatchet

lyrics

Darling I find you careless
Hiding underneath a table
Hugging four legs that ain't your parents'
your cheeks against the floor

I could give you both of my arms
press your breasts into my palms
And i could give you all of the calm
and shade of a florida palm

I have been looking for simple
forms of understanding
how mountains were torn down and cities were built
if life would be different without all of the guilt

that coastal lovers have learned
when they realize that sand can burn
the arches in your feet
and the land locked air you breathe

I could give you both of my arms
press your breasts into my palms
And i could give you all of the calm
and shade of a florida palm

Winter came as heavy
Snow on New Jersey
I will shovel your walkway
If you make me something hot to drink

I wear my coat like a heavy skin
to keep my true form hidden
the snow it seems to be boiling
when for you i play the part of a man
