  • October's got those orange eyes
    But somehow I still lost sight
    When you lifted the lid off of my pumpkin head
    And kissed me goodnight

    She could be a thorn in my side
    We never quite broke that horse
    She slept in the cul-de-sac rye
    Seven miles from my front porch

    Bundle up and come with me now
    Down the road where to the burned down barn
    We could make a blanket of coats
    And breathe our souls into the neighbor's front lawn

    But, oh god, that look in your eye
    Trouble that does not search words
    It sprung from the biblical vine and
    Awaiting to return to the dirt

    The stitches in your winter clothes
    Your cello bows
    We stole your hair to make them
    We're sorry for the iron shoes
    We nailed to you
    And stuck you in the rain
    And then you sprinted away
    Sprinted away to where I don't know
    God's moving in your bloodstream
    Where the cross beats aren't so slow

    You swept all the red from my cheeks
    I didn't hear you come back inside
    I light up the gas in the den
    And stand there in the thin winter light
    But, oh god, that curve in your spine
    A question mark, a doctor's sigh
    Was framed by the windowsill
    And you saw something I did not in that night
    You saw something I did not in that night

    The stitches in your winter clothes
    Your cello bows
    We stole your hair to make them
    We're sorry for the iron shoes
    We nailed to you
    And stuck you in the rain
    And then you sprinted away
    Sprinted away to where I don't know
    God's moving in your bloodstream
    Where the cross beats aren't so slow

    God's moving in your bloodstream
    Where the cross beats aren't so slow... [x5]
