lyrics

Don't ride a wild horse if you can't tame her
She'll never take you anywhere you wanna go
If you ain't got room for an elephant don't make friends with the elephant trainer
There's no use planting seeds you don't want to grow

In the shadow of our love lies another one
We are the giant tree blocking up the sun
Someday someone will come and cut us down
Leave light for the flowers that are dying in the ground

Come Spirit cheerily to me in the flesh
With the step of your soft shoe cut through this daily mess
You can deal with Man's desire, these heavy chains around his chest
Take my place for a moment, Spirit, for a moment let me rest

And take me home
Take me home

Marry the demons for they love you best
Without them nothing beautiful would ever be expressed
Pressed deep to the bottom, shine a light across the floor
There's no stars in the ocean, there'll be no end to the war

Spinning like a marble on a pane of glass
You find what can only happen once has already come to pass
You place your hand on the table clothe and grip it with your fingers
The plates have all been cleared but the taste of breakfast lingers

Don't ride a wild horse if you can't tame her
She'll never take you anywhere you wanna go
If you ain't got room for an elephant don't make friends with the elephant trainer
There's no use planting seeds you don't want to grow, So

Take me home
Take me home
