ravens land upon her hair
clouds adrift on her skin
a smile that tugs upon my soul
and whispers gently in my ear

eyes of honey held me down
lips like roses line her mouth
steely arrows in the air
wilted flowers at her toes

and if you ask me how i know what she looks like
i will tell you she left yesterday

eyes are east and lips are west
pulls my head against her breast
logic north and lust is south
pulls my fingers to her mouth

legs as firm as canyon walls
she's leaping high above the moon
when she drifts down on the air
the ground can't wait to kiss her toes

and if you ask me how i know what she looks like
i will tell you she left yesterday

ravens land upon her hair
clouds adrift on her skin
a smile that tugs upon my soul
and whispers gently in my ear

and if you ask me how i know what she looks like
i will tell you she left yesterday
she left yesterday
she left yesterday
she left yesterday

    General CommentI love this song- I can't belive there are no comments on this! I downloaded this song under a different name- Goth Queen. I think that title works better considering it's talking about some hot woman. But saying "she left yesterday" makes it sound like she was just some cheap whore in his studio appartment! That one line just takes away the magic. Like I'm picturing some beautiful Goth Queen all mysterious and intimidating in some barren field under black skies and ravens flying overhead- too bad I'm not an artist. I would be damn good if I had any friggin skill.

    General CommentI always took the "she left yesterday" line to mean that this girl left him, or dumped him, and the song is a sad reminiscence of this Gothic beauty...

    General CommentGoth Queen really is quite a bad name for a song.
    I downloaded this song under that title, and I didn't know what to expect.
    It really is a lovely song though.
    Beautiful lyrics. =]

    General Commentthe title of the song is
    Raven's Land
    not ravens, it is the possesive of raven not the plural.

    General CommentI always thought it said "she laughed yesterday", which sounded to me like she never laughed/was happy except with him

    General CommentI love how you know this song song is about sex without saying the word. Even though its not a lovey dovey love song, its still very poetic but you still picture the woman as being incredibly sexy.
