lyrics

Time Weighed

When I’m walking through the meadow where he lays your body down.
See him light another cigarette and stab it in the ground.
Copper moon is pasted meretricious in the sky.
Wind is blowing, see you pirouetting on the sound.
If you’d leave here I could go.
If you’d leave here I could go.

See the iris in the window with it’s fevered yellow tongue.
Russian novel that I gave to you when you were only young.
Rain is tapping like your fingernails against the panes.
Ribs of cloud receding, see you breathing through their lung.
If you’d leave here I could go.
If you’d leave here I could go.

When I see the crumpled pillow where I lay my body down.
Hear the laughter of my father, seven years now in the ground.
Hear the radiator hum a song you used to sing.
Iron ribs repeating, here you breathing through the sound.
If you’d here I could go....
