THE CROW

about

Just a little ditty that I have written about being heartbroken and hellbent on revenge or recompense. It's never the best course of action. I'm very proud to say that the uber talent that is Royce Wood Junior took charge of the production (and the squeeze box) - here he is in all his glory: soundcloud.com/slip42

lyrics

So you wanna know Black Crow
All of my unfortunate lover's woes?
Well I'm stung by a dichotomy that would make Escher proud:
How am I too bloody good but still not good enough for him now?

So go, bring me back his heart.
It should only beat for me.
And pluck me out his eyes,
So I'm the only thing that he sees.

Then he will learn that I'm not someone you spurn,
And maybe he'll return in pieces but yes, he will return.

For some love is setting free,
But my love is captivity.
Why should I let him just run about with anyone over town?
This is my way of just making sure at anytime he's around.

So go, sever me his hands.
They should only be holding mine.
And bring me back his head,
Erase all thoughts of her from his mind.

Then he will learn that I'm not someone you spurn,
And maybe he'll return in pieces but yes, he will return.

I lay you out, out, out, out
On the lawn at dawn
And Spring has blessed the boughs, boughs, boughs
And the blossoms are all out, out, out, out.

But as light hits the garden
You start to harden;
Why so quiet?
When I say together,
I mean forever.
Why so quiet?

Oh go and take him back his things,
Though I can hardly bear to see him leave.
And on those feather wings carry back my soul's relief.

And he will learn that I'm not someone you spurn.
And maybe he'll return in pieces but yes, he will return.
Yes, he will return.
