lyrics

My heart lives in the breathing summer nights
and my heart lives in the oak wood floor
My heart lives in the footsteps in the hall
and the gentle morning knock on my bedroom door
My heart lives in a lapis blue ring
My heart lives in the perfume sweet as spring
My heart lives in the fragments of a life
that stubbornly and painfully refuses to die

My heart lives on a placid Sherman lake
and my heart lives in a Towson yard
My heart lives in a Lambertville canal
and a house in a tree under eastern stars
My heart lives in a love so fierce and bright
My heart lives in a kitchen filled with light
My heart lives in a house overthrown
by a stranger with no reverence for what stories came before

My heart hides in the cracks in the walls
and my heart yearns for an old escape
My heart cries for the slowness of death
and the pain in the eyes and every mistake
My heart hardens every passing year
My heart has left little room for tears
My heart lives in a body turned to ash
now scattered over flowers in the old farm land
