The Mountain Goats Absolute Lithops Effect Lyrics

Last updated: 12/28/2012 07:34:58 AM

After one long season of waiting
After one long season of wanting
I am breaking open

My insides are pink and raw
And it hurts me when I move my jaw
But I am taking tiny steps forward

And I feel sure that my wounds will heal
And I will bloom here in my room
With a little water and a little bit of sunlight
And a little bit of tender mercy, tender mercy

The big trucks come up the highway
And the big wheels rattle my windows
And night, night comes to Texas

After one blind season alone in here
After one long, sweltering summer
I'm going to find to exit

And I will go to the house of a friend I know
And I will let myself forget
With a little water and a little bit of sunlight
And a little bit of tender mercy, tender mercy
