1. Lemon

From the recording Jack of All Fruits


I’ve got no longing to linger
Never let reality hinder
What’s been erased from the space
I’ve got my tongue ‘round God’s fingers

He said “Your face has a grace”
I said “Would you know another?
You better watch what you taste
You don’t know my other lover”
He said “You feel just like light
I only reach in the night
And if I stay til the sun
Would you still look at my love in the day?”

Turn myself til I’m someone else
If I could only find what would help myself
To give into the bitter taste
That reach my lips when they touch on your name
Breathing slow when you give the time
I never had to mistake what’s mine
