Small Demons

from Joy and Better Days by Hip Hatchet



The warmth of Oklahoma rested there in her sleeping eyes
The barrel of her body breathing next to mine
Another man's apartment penetrated by the sun
Greeting us with morning as the day begun

Inspire me with joy and thoughts of better days
you tell me i look silly when i hang my head that way

The friend who I left back on top of the hill
Was dealing with the weight of the green mountains holding still
With crystals in his eyes he held his guitar light
He said the burden of a good man is never doing anything right

My fingers are small demons and your hair is honest and bright
If i meet you in the middle, do you think that you'd spend the night

Have you had your heart broke in your young life
Said the small frame of a man, who's words blocked out the light
With my mother sitting next to me I said sure, I guess
Looking over lake champlain, i felt the water in my chest

But the joy a young girl showed me made me feel refreshed
For once i felt i could, live a life without regrets
Even as i left her back as i went out west
The blonde boulders of her shoulders will stay with me until my death

the warmth of Oklahoma rested there in her sleepy eyes
the barrel of her body breathing next to mine
what you want with me, i cannot decide
But i know that comfort visits when you're laying by my side
