Our relationship to nature...


tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the dirt
I fall deep into your iris like warm burnt earth
I could do nothing but lie here, cursed
to feel your love grow until it hurts

I bite you, you squeeze, down in the fields
we lie flat on our bellies for that perfect feeling
flutter by, monarch, butterfly wings
when you arc your back back and the oriole sings

you climb the trees while i click, click, click
and the swaying of the breeze 'til i feel seasick
and lovesick effect of the endorphin high
lying in the fields, not a cloud in the sky

come, come, come, come give me a kiss
I can't stop aching for your mouth bruised bliss
press your lips up to my lips
grind your hips into my hips

if our love can survive this minor glitch
the refrain will go off without a major hitch
and we can spend each day in each others arms
where neither of us ever come to harm

i'm not one to dwell on the past
i'd rather live in the present with your sassy ass
there's a finite time we have left ahead
let's do it all now, we can sleep when we're dead

tick tock, corn crop, we lie in the fields
and laugh loud like love is the finest meal
I can feel nothing but your warm embrace
and your hot hot hot hot breath on my face

tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the fields
I fall deep into the sky on a ferris wheel
I could do nothing but lie here, high
to feel your love grow until i die

mesmerized, i wait on my knees
for the rapture to finally come to me
when you take my hands within your hands
and whisk me away to a better land

you think maybe i'm dreaming dreams
the fascination with the moments in-between
but the here and now i spend with you
is the only reason my dreams come true

come, come, come, come jump the shark
our loveboat is about to embark
we'll set sail on the seven seas
to a life together of whatever you please

if our love can survive this sad refrain
the coda will bring you back again
and we can spend our lives together
every day gets better and better

i'm not one to live alone
no one's an island but sometimes a stone
there's a piece of advice i find hard to swallow
you can't fall in love if you're heart's so shallow

tick tock, corn crop, I lie in the fields
pressed to my chest is the lie i feel
it's awake, a weight that won't let go
it's something everyone should know
