There's a map I saw, used to show me the way,
the roads forked out towards the beautiful gray,
but the signs were moved, not they're not pointing straight,
and the paths seem childish, and way out of date,
and my sight grows dim from all the wear,
so I hide my eyes in your auburn hair,

There's a bird I knew, used to live round here,
He'd crawl out of my mouth, fly into my ear,
and deep in me, he'd find a soul,
he'd parade it around, let it all unroll,
and I try to call, but the bird's not there,
so I make a nest from your auburn hair,

There's a heart that beat, but love drips away,
from a little hole, in a little vein,
desire, lust, and love's deceit,
collect in a puddle at my feet,
and I can't ignore the smallest tear,
so I stitch it up, with your auburn hair,

There's a life I had, some meaning I'd amassed,
now I'm standing still, as the world spins past,
the bed keeps me under, I'm going nowhere soon,
so all my mornings are afternoon,
but I have no reason to be anywhere,
so I get lost in your auburn hair.
