saw the sycamore underneath the moon
i was waiting for something & you were sleeping in the living room
and it was five-sixteen a.m. - the air was sharp and cool
and i wondered where you buried our dark little jewel
and the heat rising, in the room
i am digging graves. i am digging graves
and the water boiling, on the stove
i am digging graves. i am digging graves

so i held you close to me
i saw the shadows start to gather outside beneath the sycamore tree
and something was changing
this was something here entirely new
bursting into blossom inside of us both with the sun coming up and
me holding onto you

and your body breathing on mine
i am digging graves. i am digging graves
and your hands running through my hair
i am digging graves. i am digging graves

    General CommentI love this song. It's like a first love, or that point when you KNOW you love the person you are with. Everything changes, and no one knows what it'll be like, bad or good.

    General CommentIt also can translate as "song of good luck" in french.

    I think it is about falling in love, when you know you are like getting in deep and you cant stop it.
