Sweet soil
Sweet soil
Do you want me for a shadow
To trail you?
Sweet soil
Sweet soil
Did that river spill to leave you
Sweet soil
Sweet soil
She's the sedative that keeps me
From reeling
Sweet soil
Sweet soil
Hesitating as the town wheezed
To wake you

The crowns of breathing sycamores
All whispering my fate
And the wrinkles in my sheets rewrite the news
And limb from limb I glided down through twilight's purring flight

When the traces of her brake lights carried me out that night
The cat's eyes hugging the roadside glimmered a wheel-scarred guide
Holding onto the moonlight
I wanna reach you but that night won't pull you in
Burrowing holes inside these smoke-filled eyes to see

Sweet soil
Sweet soil
I took everything this old house was leaving
Sweet soil
Sweet soil
Her imitation fur and cheap wine
I dream
