Lyrics

BOTTOMLAND

Tupelo honey gum
Dark purple fruit in summer sun
That many songbirds consume
While I sit in the shade
Of our lonely room
Heart breaking, awaking
I lay here

Waiting for the sky to change
You're nowhere
Trying to rearrange
The twisted path that brought us south
The cutting words flying out my mouth
Heart breaking, awaking

The razor sharp edges
The trees' shadow casts
Let's fly away
Leave it all in the past

At the Honey Island Swamp
Tell stories of half men
And beasts of yore
Such legends we create
When we can't help but want
Want so much more
Heart breaking, awaking

The razor sharp edges
The tree’s shadow casts
Let’s fly away
Leave it all in the past
Rise up rise out
From cold dark waters
A forever gift
To our son and daughter
