SAINT JAMES HARRIS WOOD., CA


 

Baby don’t swear at me
remember when you were young & sane
a mouth full of apple juice
lyrics hidden in your shoe
Honey don’t stare at me
As if we’d made love by the pound
your purse full of cat bones
furry little ghosts haunting low
Darling just bear with me
take the rocks from my pockets
do card tricks on my chest
til the sun rises out of sight
Sweetheart take care of me
hold back the tide & rain
store the moon in a bus station locker
in case it all breaks down
