I guess I got a taste for poison
I've given up on ever being well
I keep minding the horizon,
digging for lies I've yet to tell
And I wish you were here to softly say my name,
calm down all the chemicals tearing through my brain
I don't think I've missed you this much since I was seventeen
I'd call in the morning and I think this is a dream
Cherokee
Cherokee
Way you carved those doubts right out of me

I see you shining through the treetops
but I don't feel you pulling strings anymore
I still use your old alarm clock
Every morning I get further off the course
And don't I hear you speakin' in the noises in this house
Airplanes flyin' over shakin' all my secrets out
Darlin' tell me something I don't already know
I'm aware of where to find you, it hurts too bad to go
to Cherokee
Cherokee
Way you carved those doubts right out of me

I felt like the world was burning
You had stars in your eyes
shining for a feeling that I can't afford to buy
Everything you told me still rattles in my head
I'm stayin' off of main street, you're talking to the dead
and Cherokee
Cherokee
I wish you'd carve these doubts right out of me
