lyrics

Oh you willow with your black waving semaphore
trying to say something to me, something I'll never know;
oh you vines with your white wilting flowers
gray as ash in the leaving light -
you're coming with me,
oh, stick with me;
be more constant than I.

Oh my friend with the lamplight anointing your head:
how I love you, I love you, without you I'm dead
in the night with the red weeping taillights
sinking down the hill and out of sight -
you're coming with me,
oh, stick with me;
be more constant than I.

Oh you mist that in Eden once watered the ground,
oh you heat spells and deluges hounding me now,
oh you sword all flaming and turning
every way to the Tree of Life -
must you go with me?
must you go with me?
you're leaving nothing alive.
You go behind me,
and before me;
you're leaving nothing alive.
You're beside me,
and inside me;
you're leaving nothing alive.
