When nature talks I'm not supposed to hear
I'm not supposed to know, don't I know
We never were close, I let the feeling go
And let it fade inside
I know why I love I know
You're leaning down, gently you say "I want to leave"
Sure you can go but then you will sleep alone,
though I'm yours
When nature walks, I see it in your legs
It's something in your style
In the sun
You turned into the wind and took all my surprise
And like a million eyes on me, on me, on me

You're gleaming now, didn't you say "I want to leave"?
Anything else get it yourself, you know what's mine is yours

When nature learns nothing's in control
And nothing stays the same in your way
It will not return until the seasons change
And when it changes fine I'll go, I'll go, I'll go

    General CommentHere are the correct lyrics:

    When nature talks I'm not supposed to hear
    I'm not supposed to know, don't I know
    We never were close, I let the feeling go
    And let it fade inside
    I know why I love I know
    You're leaning down, gently you say "I want to leave"
    Sure you can go but then you will sleep alone,
    though I'm yours
    When nature walks, I see it in your legs
    It's something in your style
    In the sun
    You turned into the wind and took all my surprise
    And like a million eyes on me, on me, on me

    You're gleaming now, didn't you say "I want to leave"?
    Anything else get it yourself, you know what's mine is yours

    When nature learns nothing's in control
    And nothing stays the same in your way
    It will not return until the seasons change
    And when it changes fine I'll go, I'll go, I'll go

    General Commentthis song's so beautiful and sad.
    i'd guess it's about the ending of a relationship, but i'm having a hard time decoding specific references in the song.

    General CommentUTR: “Nature Song” was written by your former bandmate in Little Red Rocket [Maria and Orenda’s first band], Louis Schefano, what was the appeal of covering that particular song for you?

    Maria: Louis was my first boyfriend, we went out for six years. That song is about a certain time, and it put me back there, made me think about those years. It was always one of my favorite songs, and he had never recorded it, so I asked if I could.

    UTR: Obviously, you’re close to Conor Oberst. What does his recent coup of the pop charts mean for the Saddle Cree
