lyrics

The fields were flooded
and the barley drowned
We drove along the wreckage
at the high water line

The rains don’t stop
they just ease up a while
Dirt turned to mud
for twenty miles

The road was empty
the sky like lead
Telephone line
like a fragile thread

Dishwater coffe
Motel beds
He put his hand on my shoulder
but he looked straight ahead

I lit the lamp
and a cigarette
Sat on the stairs
’til he got out of bed

The earth was bleeding
the river red
the wind was whistling
but all the birds had fled

I dreamed a church
a mighty hall
Ceiling lost
in the sky above

When I awoke
by the vesper call
I thought of you
and I felt nothing at all
