I am treading on cow pile mountains
Before you answer my call
Lounging at breakfast a recoiled monster
With tied mouth somehow telling all

Before it breaks before you've listened
Short stacks are sitting high
Lips are dry maybe you're guessing
maybe you're guessing why

Don't mean to make you sick
It just works out that way
You say it's walnut bread
We know it's what I say

Friends do tell me it's best to say little
The less you put out the less that's gone
But sitting here lazing the smaller I feel
'Cause I expand when I let on

My love for you is not like friendship
Can you tell from my brave toned voice
This timid girl likes very much your hand

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who is secretly in love with someone but is terribly shy and is afraid to let them know.. even though her actions seem to be quite obvious. Thought, I'm sure the song could be interpreted a number of ways.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who is in love with another girl and is in the process of telling her.

    General Commentthere's a youtube video of this tune and the video is about the ghost of young girl
    that goes back to visit her grieving family.

    short stacks is a reference to pancakes and the ghost girl watches her brother eat them with
    sadness.
