Lyrics

Like a black crow standing on a sea of shells
She’s blessed by magic and the sound of liberty’s bells
And I’ll raise the curfew and sit by her door
She’s been through this world before

Out in the snowfields, coyote tracks
She calls out its name with the words I lack
And it turns its head and howls to the moon
She’s gonna be leaving me soon

She’s giving me questions and quizical looks
She tears up my papers and burns all my books
They gave her nothing she didn’t already know
She’s getting ready to go

Down in the basement among her things
I opened her boxes and found her rings
I offered her money she said “They’re not for sale”
She guards her secrets well

Somebody saw her down on the beach
Followed her footsteps but they ended at the sea
Still when she found out she goes and raises hell
She guards her secrets well

Each face is a mirror reflecting her own
She squanders affection and rarely goes home alone
But I wouldn’t ask for anything if only she’d tell me its through
She guards her secrets too

Like a black crow standing on a sea of shells
She’s blessed by magic and the sound of liberty’s bells
And I’ll raise the curfew and sit by her door
She’s been through this world before
