Lyrics

Darling I kissed your lips and tasted elder wine
Oh I waste too many mornings
I put pennies on your eyes
I play the ghost to be the one you'll find
Oh I

Neath a veil the only daughter of a mission bell rang quiet
Rang when I first met you
Chasing pigeons from the sky
I watched them scatter from the porch outside
Oh I

We lived for a while in the candle light
Moving like a noose on a power line
In the days of rain we kept our bodies dry
Under sheets of crimson, gold, and white.

Darling I kissed your lips and tasted elder wine
Oh I waste too many mornings
I put pennies on your eyes
I play the ghost to be the one you'll find
Oh I
