The eleventh track from Joe Hedges' full-length album Alchemy.


she came into the house with a bee sting
said she could feel her throat growing tight
are you sure it's not because you're frightened?
just relax. everything is alright

should we call Dr. Sharma or something?
just a shot and you should be fine
well i'm not one for blood or needles
but i drove it into her thigh

i slightly enjoyed it
oh some pain is worth it

like an atom that floats in the ocean
tossed in the waves and the knives
by the time i get to the sea shore
i won't remember where i spent all my life

i still don't belong here
oh where are you now my dear

i still feel your pulse when we're cities away
i stand on the line where the night meets the day
i'm evaporating until i'm a gray cloud traveling

god makes the wind i am blowing through space
i'll come back to bed after i see your face
i look down through your window who's there in my place?
