lyrics

Death is sitting underneath the cottonwood tree
There she sits waiting so patiently for me
We met eyes when we crossed paths
Well i only had one choice
keep on walking
There is so turning back now

Every winter I freeze to death
Buried alive beneath the snowy depths
Only to be thawed out come the spring
Resurrected with the life that warm sun brings

Now I’m shoulder deep into the briar
Looking for ripe berries
You know i don’t much mind the thorns
It’s just the price you pay
for the sweet taste you know

So take me where the grass grows high
And sitting at the top there are ticks
trying to hitch a ride
They just want you to let them in
Isn’t that what love is

Oh how could I forget that love could hurt like this
I’m a child with a magnifying glass who wants revenge

All about the thistles there are bees
Look but do not touch cause these things sting
Something’s must be loved from far away
Don’t you get too close now
Or you’re gonna pay,you’re gonna pay,you’re gonna pay

Death is sitting underneath the cottonwood tree
So I sat down next her and offered my company
