lyrics

A Wild Plant you wrote for me
Your eyes were dark but so were we

Our hands are tied
Our eyes are wide

This drunken man in all his splendor
sits alone and remembers
Building castles, filling cracks,
A sister's love, and a watered back.

It was you who left
as far as I can recollect

I can't unload my fists into
the shaking boy who slept with you

Ghosts don't go down fast
When your eyes are looking back
Our hands are tied
Our eyes are wide

Your hands are the marvel in a child's eye
swollen wide from crying tries

Be my woman be my wife
Hold my ankles hold our strife
in your hands
the marvel in a child's eye
