Like a seed in the earth waiting with bated breath is how I'm down and out
All the months in the north that don't get light at all, lonely all year round
How did I fall so far from the family tree?
And why did you follow when you saw what happened to me?

Lover, your mother
Will worry half to death at day break

You give yourself to love like a wild animal, delivered from the plains
Celebrate the mountain air, shivering and unprepared and desperate for decay

Now that you're here love, don't you feel somehow undone?
You can't feed your body on misunderstandings of love.


Lover, your mother
Will worry half to death at day break
and lover, your brothers will hunt me like a dog when they wake


Follow your mother, your father and brother back home
Follow your mother, your father and brother back home

Follow your mother, your father and brother tonight
Follow your mother, your father and brother back home


Lover, your mother
Will worry half to death, when day breaks
And lover, your brothers will hunt me like a dog, when they wake

Follow your mother, your father and brother back home
Follow your mother, your father and brother back home
