Track Name: Darling Don't You Go...
Darling don't you go
out in the woods all alone
you know it's dangerous (you know it's dangerous)

Among the jays and crows
that pick away at your bones
it'd be a shame for us (it'd be a shame for us)

If you should fall to foes
but you could call to me
we're on a frequency (we're on a frequency)

'Cause baby you're like me
you never seem to see
the forest for the trees (the forest for the trees)

I'm at the dollar store
I spent a dollar or more
to get us things we need (to get us things we need)

I bought a shoeshine brush
so when we walk in the dust
we keep our dignity (we keep our dignity)

Before the firing squad
and then they took my job
it came as no surprise (it came as no surprise)

'Cause baby I'm like you
I always take my time
I never take advice (I never take advice)

Darling don't you go
out in the woods all alone
you know it's dangerous (you know it's dangerous)

Just come to mass with me
we'll have the saints intercede
and pray for both of us (and pray for both of us)

I took the eucharist
and then I took your kiss
and they both taste like wine (and they both taste like wine)

I took the eucharist
and then I took your kiss
and I was saved both times (and I was saved both times)
