lyrics

Said the squirrel to the tree
I just couldn’t agree with you more
your fruits would be sweeter
if you hadn’t happened to meet her
but I’m coping you see
I’ve grown bark
I wear leaves
I am strong
still it’s hard in the winter
the days are so cold and so long
come to me
I’m lonely
I’ll feed you fruits
if you only sit still by me
the earth feeds
soil and seeds
to mend
to give
to grow
at the top of a hill
on a white window sill
she will wait
for the queens courtyard grounds
to put on the sun’s crown
her love is a sweet little cumbersome shape on the wall
and the wall is of granite stone
heavy and cold and tall
oh come to me
I’m lonely
I will feed you fruits
If you only sit still by me
the earth feeds
soil and seeds
that swell and split their bellies
why can’t I give until I burst
ripe mulberries look down from their tree
shiver’n and shakin’ so terribly frightened to leave
but not a fox nor wolf has detected the fear on their leaves
in fact the ground below them is the loneliest place they could be
oh come to me
I’m lonely
the grass grows high
and I fear it will swallow me
copper nails and salted roots
the crimes I dream
as I pursue my belief of you
still the earth feeds
soil and seeds
that swell and split their bellies
why can’t I give until I burst
