about

This song is about love and death. It's called "In The Ground," and I'm very pleased with it. I hope you enjoy.

lyrics

Friday night and I'm wearing a tie
You gave me that makes me look silly
I'm holding a flower that's wilted by now
Picturing you in something frilly
With curls in your hair and lace on your thighs
Fire in your face your hands on me
The prettiest girl I've been with tonight
And you'd slap me and say, “That's not funny.”

And your face
Keeps me warm at night
In your frame
With the moon in your eyes
And your scent
On my pillow still
And your body
In the ground

Why could you have warned me
With a letter some kind of sign?
Why couldn't you have told me
That your love was stronger than mine?
I left in a torrent of hot air and hot rain
With a mind full of something rotten
And I was sure by tomorrow
That this whole thing would be forgotten

And your face
Keeps me warm at night
In your frame
With the moon in your eyes
And your scent
On my pillow still
And your body
In the ground

You used to laugh and tell me
That I was nothing but trouble
That I'd bring you crashing to the ground
I said baby let's dance in the rubble
Ah, you weren't too good for me as well
Hell, maybe we weren't right for each other
But someday I'll marry and father a child
And wish that you were his mother

And your face
Keeps me warm at night
In your frame
With the moon in your eyes
And your scent
On my pillow still
And your body
In the ground
