Scattered relics of your love Just lyin' round your dusty room

Bearing old souls, old men, old scars, dissonant wallow of guitars.

Burnin' off Indian sun on the water barges hung.

Through the bay window panes covers maginify and brings.?



Sleepy poet's perfect dream, pastel homes along the sea.

This I would, this I will: leave to join you in the hills.

For you I would, for you I will leave this for the auburn hills,

Find your old peeling house, find you out there



Hear the owl call from the tree, smell the midnight forest breeze

Shield you from this dark and night, wake you in the morning.



You came to me in a dream walkin down the path by the cold, icy stream

The white of the snow, coating the pines, in the Sierra wintertime,

You disappeared, You left me alone. In the old master room of my mountain home. (?)

And I called for you so many times and longed for one more day with you in my life.

And I longed for one more day with you in my life.



I see you there in my dreams, your poise is perfect, that of a statue as queen.

Your beautiful hair, your ocean blue eyes; You bear the depths of your losses inside

And I beg of you so many times, forgive me once and for all for all of my lies, to forgive me once and for all, for all of my lies



Oh mommy, the leaning tree like a diamond

As we pass the long dead grass, thirsty in the sun.

Memories rest beyond the broken fence. Let their spirits be.

The birds have left their mother's nest on the roses' thorns

There they swing over the bleach-white grain, sprawled over the hill.

    Lyric Correction:Revised version of the lyrics from sadreminders.com/interaction/… :

    Scattered relics of your loves
    Lying round your dusty bones
    Bearing old souls, opening old scars
    Dissonant wallow of guitars
    Burning off Indian sun
    On the water barges hum
    Through the bay window panes
    Colors magnify and glaze

    Sleepy poets, perfect dream
    Pass our homes along the sea
    This I would, this I will
    Leave to join you in the hills

    For you I would, for you I will
    Leave this for the auburn hills
    Find your old peeling house
    Find you out there

    Hear the outcall from the tree
    Smell the midnight forest breathe
    Shield you from the stalking night
    Wake you in the morning

    ---

    You came to me, in a dream
    Waking down the path by the cold icy stream

    The white of the snow coating the pines
    In the sierra wintertime

    You disappeared, you left me alone
    In the old master-room of my mountain home

    And I called for you so many times
    And long for one more day with you in my life
    I long for one more day with you in my life

    I see you there in my dreams
    Your poise is perfect, that of a statuesque queen

    Your beautiful hair, your ocean blue eyes
    That bear the depths of your losses inside

    And I begged of you so many times
    To forgive me once and for all, for all of my lies
    To forgive me once and for all, for all of my lies

    ---

    Oh, Miami
    The leaning tree
    Like a dying hand

    As we pass
    The long dead grass
    Thirsty in the sun

    Memories rest
    Beyond the broken fence
    Let their spirits be

    The birds have left
    Their mother's nest
    On the rose's thorns

    There they sway
    Over the bleach white grey
    Sprawled over the hill
