Mat Kerekes – Dogwood Lyrics

Dogwood Lyrics – Mat Kerekes

Last night I dreamt of some violence
Then I woke up alone in my room
The shadows claim my soul
My bones will break for you
In a parked car outside of the airport
You turn and you kiss me
Baby, you were golden
My hands still tremble when they touch you

So don’t slow me down too much
Or you’ll pull me in for good
But I don’t care
No, I don’t care

Wrote some sad songs
Got you in some trouble
Oh, I first met you when I was young
I am your good time
I am your big star
You’re my dogwood

You play your cards right
And my head, it runs wild
I lay around, daydreaming of you
We talked all night
You gave me some advice
That I won’t use

So don’t slow me down too much
Or you’ll pull me in for good
But I don’t care
I don’t care

I wish we were younger
Could’ve gave you some big love
Could’ve saved you from hurt that you once knew
Instead only in bits and pieces
I’d think of you

So don’t slow me down too much
Or you’ll pull me in for good
But that’s what I want
That’s what I want
