lyrics

Last time I saw you, you were a puddle on the floor.
Seeped into my stockings, seeped under the bedroom door.
Cracks in the floorboards are filled with our sweat and tears.
We pose for a portrait, it watches us throughout the years.

Lay bare your body there,
Remove all your cotton and wool.
Untangle your tangled hair.
Lay bare your body there.


Peel back the birch bark, reveal the secrets in the sap.
Sink the sweetness in your skin and begin to shed all your winter skin.
Take the low road home, down the steady stone path.
And if it leads you to the riverside, drink your fill and be satisfied.

Lay bare your body there,
Remove all your cotton and wool.
Untangle your tangled hair.
Lay bare your body there.
