about

A bittersweet anti love song with spine tingling harmonies.

lyrics

Evening comes softly to the empire of your eyes,
And in your glance I am undone.
I try to hold your image in my heart,
But I taste poison ivy on my tongue.
Yes I taste poison ivy on my tongue.

I see the future through the bottom of a glass,
I watch the way the threads are spun.
You think your fate is written in the stars,
But you’ll taste poison ivy on your tongue.
Yes you’ll taste poison ivy on your tongue.

What you have you hold,
That’s the story you were told.
But the stars grow old,
The fires fade and love grows cold.
Love grows so cold.

I hold a photograph from a long forgotten time,
When all our precious dreams were young.
I feel a sadness all tangled up in rhyme,
It’s the taste of poison ivy on my tongue.
Yes it’s the taste of poison ivy on my tongue.
Oh you’ll taste poison ivy on your tongue.
