lyrics

For Jill

Ours Was No Tender Courtship. We Hit The Hard Wood Floor.

We Banged Our Hips, Bruised Our Lips, Licked Our Wounds And More.

And The Names Of God And Jesus Christ Echoed Down The Hall.

Where A Photograph, Your 8x10 Was Taped Up On The Wall.

I’ll Love You All Over Again. Just Like I Promised I Could.

In Sickness And Health In All Absence Of Wealth Like I Knew I Would.



On The Heat Of Summer Asphalt, In The Middle Of Our Road.

On A Dirty Old Car Blanket, With The Pavement Turning Cold.

We Counted Shooting Stars On Naked Fingers, Naked Toes.

We Keep Counting On Each Other To Still Love What We Behold.

I’ll Love You All Over Again, Just Like I Promised I Could

At The Edge Of The Beach, At The Edge Of The Trail, At The Edge Of The Woods
