lyrics

Someone said
It takes two bullets
To put you down
She was right
Or was it he
I didn't see

Head was down
Staring at the ground
Staring at my feet
Dipped my quill
In the black ink of loss
Once before

Oh Manzanita
Don't say goodbye again
I've hardly got the pen
To write about the sorrow and the shame
Again and again
Manzanita my friend

My dark Corsican love
My creme brulee
My cafe au lait
Gonna go climb a hill
Walk you off
The best that I can

Oh but I'm tired
Uninspired
Staring at my feet
Oh my little apple
You left me at the chapel
Someone throw me up a grapple
I wanna come down

Oh Manzanita
Don't say goodbye again
I've hardly got the pen
To write about the sorrow and the shame
Again and again
Manzanita my friend
After all that we've been through
A part of you apart from you

"a searching, fuzzy-headed, lyrically precise stab into reason and wincing memory."
