"Field Song" as written by and Mark Lanegan....
Let's walk down to the water
There's hyacinth in bloom
I spend my days
Lovin' you
I left these fields
Because I never knew
To be a horse
To be a train
I wouldn't have the heart
And next to the tracks
You find an apple cart
Maybe we'll stay at home
And be together no more to move alone
Together no more to move alone
See the water It's mixed with light
For you I've been shaken
Regarding the fields
Humbly mistaken

    General CommentA love song from an innocent narrator. "To be a horse, to be a train, I wouldn't have the heart"--he's pledging to stay. But it's tentative, and one gets the sense from the song that the narrator will ultimately move on, and leave this sweet, youthful love behind. A "Song of Innocence" foreshadowing the anticipated "Songs of Experience" on down the road from this.

    General CommentI love the reference to hyacinth, I didn't know that plant but it looks very beautiful and romantic. I agree with nobody.
