The Nits - Toe In The Water lyrics

You hear the birds in my italic forest
I smell the roses in your cement garden
You snow around
Around my head tomorrow
I rain upon
Upon your feet in sorrow

Toe in the water
Toe in the water

You walk on mud along a thirsty river
I see the trees
I hear the leaves that shiver
The snowy owl will fly around your silence
Today is light
Tomorrow will be darkness

Toe in the water
Toe in the water

Whisper something in my ear
Words I cannot hear
There's a hole in a tree
And somebody's watching me
Like a big Black Woodpecker
A big Black Woodpecker

(Toe in the water)
Toe in the water
Toe in the water

The lake with circles
Circles like a necklace
I see your face, I see a million freckles
My red spotted
My red Spotted Flycatcher
You drink the lake
I eat a Lesser Whitethroat

Toe in the water
River of dreams
Toe in the water
