Dove
In the time it took to wrap your hands
In the time it took to start your car
I have written a eulogy

Dove
In a perfect world that spins off course
With the perfect cosmos at my ears
There is nothing frightening

Shine on, aces and squares
Shine on love that keeps happening, happening
Oh oh
Happen to me

Dove
This city is a werewolf at your door
This city is a dirge of dreams and dice
But I am just imagining

Here
With a little word to cut the cold
With a little rabbit in your heart
Who's writing little notes to me

I'm still here in the dirt
With my red drum
D-d-bum-bum for eternity

And it's not what your mama said it would be, my son
It's not what your mama said
Not what your mama said
It is not what your mama said it would be, my son
It is not what your mama said
Not what your mama said
