lyrics

I’m sleeping in the thought of that simple supper
Dreaming of the nightly feast
Arranging pretty flowers on the patient table
Crowded cornered bones and feet

Remembering the songs of the smoky summer
Rolling on the fragrant fires
Tasting every trace of that simple supper
Laughing till the moon retires

The skies love the rain
But I’m dry in the rain
My eyes wet with shame
Still I’m dry in the rain

Banished from the taste of that simple supper…
I’ve given up the nightly feast…
Burning far above every smoky summer…
They’ve shackled up my bones and feet…

The skies love the rain
But I’m dry in the rain
My eyes wet with shame
Still I’m dry in the rain

The trees sprout with pride
I could breathe out their pride
But there are no trees inside
So I’ll dream and I’ll hide
I’ll dream and I’ll hide...
