Started at a summer lake / A sentence and a name / If only for a moments sake / You called it and it cameStarted at a summer lake,
A sentence and a name.
If only for a moments sake,
You called it and it came.

Held him down and let him eat,
longer than a while.
Hold it down and let him eat,
softer than a child.

We’ve seen how sick wind blows,
But I’ve got your bovine eyes.
And I’ll love you like I loved you and then I’ll die.
We’ve seen how sick wind blows,
But I’ve got your bovine eyes.
And I’ll love you like I loved you and then I’ll die.

Shot the rats and as they ran,
From the quarry to the track.
Chasing what i gave to him,
I never took it back.
Held it up in front the wind,
Blowing missing chime.
Found it, God, and begged him,
Fight your body back.

We’ve seen how sick wind blows,
But I’ve got your bovine eyes.
And I’ll love you like I loved you and then I’ll die.
We’ve seen how sick wind blows,
But I’ve got your bovine eyes.
And I’ll love you like I loved you and then I’ll die.

I believed he is the number one who wants to let you wonder.

We’ve seen how sick wind blows,
But I’ve got your bovine eyes.
And I’ll love you like I loved you and then I’ll die.

  1. i HAD TRIED TO SEND COMMENT WEEKS AGO, BUT IT WOULDN’T FORWARD. i’LL TRY AGAIN. aS a SONGWRITER MYSELF, SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO REPLY WHAT YOU’RE REALLY SAYING. iN THIS LYRIC, IT SOUNDS LIKE A MYSTERY WITHIN THE WORDS.. It SOUNDS LIKE THE WRITER IS TALKING ABOUT NATURE IN ONE SENSE LIKE AN ANIMAL AND YET I WONDER IF SHE IS REFERRING TO a love gone wrong–I have no clue what this lyric is about. I would like to know so I could understand it Thank Judy Greer
