Plagued By Desire

In memory of the love that loved and is gone
The wind picks up the leaves at dawn
Blows their corpses round the lawn
And I wouldn't want to go
'Cept the wind and the snow
Wont let me rest anymore
The Hobo holds open his hand
Offers me a piece of this land
And I would go with the flow 
'Cept the wind and the snow
Wont let me sleep any more
Anymore
The river rushes through my plans
Won't let me swim nor stand
And I would let go
'Cept the wind and the snow
Wont let me cry any more
Anymore
The earth is too hard to break
The apple has defeated the snake
And I wouldn't want to know
'Cept the wind and the snow
Has pounded my head till it aches
Till it aches

So I lit a fire under the morn
Tried to burn up my scorn
But it didn't want to glow
'Cause the wind and the snow
Won't let me smolder any more
Anymore

Put on my laughing boots
Let me step gently over new green shoots
And I know I have to go
'Cause the wind and the snow
Just might keep me safe forever more
Forever more
