Joanna Newsom – Jackrabbits Lyrics

Jackrabbits Lyrics – Joanna Newsom

I was tired of being drunk
My face cracked like a joke
So I swung through here like a brace of jackrabbits
With their necks all broke
I stumbled at the door with my boot
And I knocked against the jam
And I scrabbled at your chest like a mute
With my fists of ham

Trying to tell you that I am
Telling you I can
I can love you again
Love you again

I’m squinting towards the east
My faith makes me a dope
But you can take my hand in the darkness, darling
Like a length of rope
I shaped up overnight, you know
The day after she died
When I saw my heart, and I tell you, darling
It was open wide

What with telling you I am
Telling I can
I can love you again
Love you again

It can have no bounds, you know
It can have no end
But you can take my hand in the darkness, darling
When you need a friend
And it can change in shape and form
But never change in size
Well, the water, it runs deep, my darling
Where it don’t run wide
The feather of a hawk was bound
Bound around my neck
A poultice made of fig, the eager little vultures pecked
And the verse I read in jest
And Matthew spoke to me
Said, “There’s a flame that moves like a low-down pest
And says, ‘You will be free'”

Only tell me that I can
Tell me that I can
I can love you again
Love you again

Love you again, love you again
Love you again, love you again
Love you again, love you again
Love you again, love you again
Love you again, love you
