The Handsome Family - The Petrified Forest lyrics

When we were together I lay in your river
As the fish swam through my hands
Raindrops and roses fell from the heavens
Just to brush against your skin

And a strand of your hair
Lost to the wind
Sent doves wheeling through the air

But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
Stumbling on rocks in the dark
But I remember, I still remember
When you held me in your beautiful arms

When you left me alone, the sky turned to stone
And my legs rolled into the sea
Why did you go? The sea was so cold
My arms blew off in the breeze

I searched for your footprints
The scent of roses
As the wind weeps over the sea

But now I'm alone in the petrified forest
Stumbling on rocks in the dark
But I remember, I still remember
When you held me in your beautiful arms
