from the 2010 album "Time and Temperature"
Have I told you the story of my girlfriend, Renee?
It was back in college when I was sick and very thin
How she was so healthy in every way
I wanted all of her energy, even the sunbeams
All the steeples and the seagulls
and the sounds of Paris were not a symphony
She sang the only song for me
Did I speak her language or something?
What did she see in me?
She made her own photography
When her skin came open, it was like yellow corn
I was scared and queasy feeling
The stuff beneath was more appealing
and I stayed in exile, in the loveliest dream
Found a tree that looked good to me
I laid her there for eternity
