Mariee Sioux – Coyote With the Flowering Heart Lyrics

Coyote With the Flowering Heart Lyrics by Mariee Sioux


I’ve bathed in the yarrow and the rose
Remember it’s not just babies that grow
Though they might hold the miricale first breath
Air’s not the only beginning you’ll know

Trickster we slip into the old ways
And with your crooked ears we play
Coyote with the Flowering Heart
Can’t even tell my own selves apart

And the catalyst shows
As a belly with your own
Honest as an oak
As sudden as flash flooding
Obsessive as smoke
Remote as the Dead Sea
So embarassing
I’ll still be your coat
In colder than below zero
I’ll try and act normal
Waiting for her

Running off would be the cruelest herb
Forgot I knew just how to be heard
Coyote with the Flowering Heart
Bouquet your veins till death do you part

Happiness an Invisible horse
Someone please feed that strong beast before
All we have left are motherless foals
In soft bales of hay
Miracles unfold

And the catalyst shows
As a belly with your own
Honest as an oak
As sudden as flash flooding
Obsessive as smoke
Remote as the Dead Sea
So embarrassing
I’ll still be your coat
In colder than below zero
I’ll try and act normal
Waiting for her
