What were you dreaming? . . . that made you sweat . . soaking wet . . . in a fever?
Dark wings circling . . . slowly around . . slowly around . . slowly around

What grip held you? . . tossed & turned you . . tossed & turned you?
Where were you going? carried away . . carried away . . & calling?

Oh . . then mourning flies . . the fields awake & come alive . . darkness goes . .
The crows appear . . the scurrying squirrel . . the apple tree deer . . the sun fills
Our bed . . the sun fills our bed

Some cloud?s caught us . . trouble all around . . trouble comin down
Six wings circling . . slowly around . . slowly comin down . . upon me

Oh . . then mourning flies . . the fields awake & come alive . . darkness goes . .
The crows appear . . the scurrying squirrel. . the apple tree deer . . the sun fills our bed
. . the cats walk our head

They were on my chest . . it was a funny feeling . .
They had a map of my heart . . pulled pieces & parts & flew away . .
The birds were on my breast . . it was a funny feeling . .
They had a map of my soul . . dug for the coal & pulled it out . .

Will you ever know?. . I'll be right there with you . .
I have a map of your heart . . the pieces & parts
To make it whole again

oh . . til mourning flies . . the fields awake & come alive . . darkness goes . .
Crows appear . . the scurrying squirrel . . the apple tree deer . . carry me through
. . I'll carry you

Where have you been?
Tell me where have you been?
Where have you been?
Tell me where have you been?
