Honey Sun

I live and die by the hot and cold in strangers’ eyes
But danger lies behind the tape across my door
I know a place where angels lace the lemonade
And I cannot stay where all the broken plans were made

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I’m gone
And I’ll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth

She and I were death-defying promenade
She and I were profligate as de rigeur
She and I were for a button, tailor-made
She and I won’t find another me and her

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I’m gone
And I’ll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth

Oh, love, like a sun-dial harbor
Oh, love, like a falling harp
Oh, my love, give her wings and have her
Oh, my love, gotta be loved upon

Broken devotion
Can I jump in the gun
And fly over the ocean
Can I jump in the gun

And string up a net across Lafayette
And sing of my deeds while I’m gone
And I’ll spin some lies to tell you upon
My return from the ends of the earth
